Tweed is about as quintessentially British heritage as it comes. From origins in 18th century hunting, shooting, and riding garb—tweed (borrowing from the Scotch “tweel”, or twilled) cloth was twist-woven to withstand the elements—being moisture resistant, durable, and even dun-mottled enough to hide splashes of mud, wayward tufts of grass, and all manners of verdant…
