tweed ride


Have you heard about the "Tweed Ride?" I find it fascinating that people of all ages will ride donning their tweediest fashions.
I can imagine wearing a tweed jacket or vest and some sort of pant with a bit of lycra and perhaps even a tweed bike helmet! I love herringbones and houndstooths and tweeds for Fall.
What would you wear to the tweed ride?

Good morning, PVE,
...a subtle but complimentary stripe shirt, turtleneck sweater,
a great scarf, boots and a hat--
you can dress that coat up or down.
It's a houndstooth???
Have a fashionable Monday,

(saw your pic on The Vamp's blog,
gotta get the magazine)

I love the McL tweed jacket. I'd wear a Harris Tweed Jacket, may be a tweed cap too!

Janell -
I can just see you sitting pretty on a bike that you have perhaps painted with "chalkboard paint" and sporting some fabulous tweeds!

Barbara,
Yes, that coat is a houndstooth...I found a houndstooth sheath dress for fall! I love fall tweeds, donegal, harris, and all the rest.
Thanks for popping over to the vamp - she is an amazing lady - it was great to meet so many other wonderful bloggers and guests of Eddie & Jaithans.
happy monday -

2 hippos,
Would you have a little hand whipped edge...in a pop of color? I can see you sporting something quilted...

Maybe a warm scarf around my neck. Have a golden day! xo

I don't know what I would wear but shopping for it would be so much fun! New boot for sure to go with my found tweed maybe.

Love it...certainly a black turtleneck and fun scarf! Happy Monday!

That sounds like such a fun event. I have a few great options but would need a bike to participate. I would want an old school teal Vespa to play off my tomato red tweed skirt, a chocolate cord jacket with elbow patches and would need to hunt for a perfect scarf to fly off in the wind. I'd want a Snoopy vs. the Red Baron type of hat and goggles. Hee hee! Love brainstorming on your blog!

Sounds like the tweed version of Breaking Away. I just LOVE tweed, herringbone, houndstooth and all versions of classic fall fashion. Hopefully it would be cool enough to wear a turtleneck, jacket and either cords or jeans. What a great event.

Since this is all fantasy, I would find on auction something that jackie O wore while riding!!! hehe. then buy it. but of course, it wouldn't fit me at all, but that's part of the fantasy, no?

The coat is lovely. I would wear it when a wonderfully lime green or red trousers, but I'm quirky;-)

Maybe the whole English tweed thing would be fun....such a concept....I would love to be on the sidelines with my camera most of all....xv

Debra said...

Oh yes- turtlenecks and thick loopy wool jackets, tall boots and cashmere scarves. This is my favorite season for dressing.
Let's dress and go to lunch~

The jacket you illustrated or the one you have pictured- very nice. Especially like the bit of fringe edging.

I'd love the j mclaughlin jacket with black skinny pants, riding boots, a great scarf...I can see you now - you'll look fabulous!

The Zhush said...

I have no idea what this is, but it looks and sounds adorable regardless!

Tweed would look so great on you!!

Laurie said...

How great is that! The poster is so witty! I would wear a mid-thigh autumn colored jacket with a long plain skirt and a ruffled slip under it with a great pair of boots, and don't forget the scarf!!!

Carole said...

Tweed = autumn for me.
