In our ceaseless quest to dress the nation properly, The Chap has created a tweed jacket for gentlemen, in conjunction with renowned tweed merchants Walker Slater.
The Chap Tweed Jacket comes in an all-round shade of bottle green with a classic hacking jacket construction, with a single rear vent, three buttons and a ticket pocket. Unlike a hacking jacket, however, the pockets are straight, not slanted, a feature we considered more versatile and suitable for town and well as country wear. the tweed is a medium-weight Harris Tweed with a herringbone pattern.
Walker Salter are an Edinburgh-based menswear company specialising in tweed, and have previously produced a three-piece linen suit for The Chap Collection. Later this year another tweed jacket in a different colour will be produced, along with trousers and a waistcoat.
