Mr. Tweed: Tweed Country Sports

There is a great site for tweed on the web of which you might or might not be aware.  The site is called Tweed Country Sports.  It stocks many classic British items that are well-known for their high quality.  However, this is not your standard classic British outfitter.  It's not British at all, well the owner is not British, and the shop is not located anywhere in the UK.  Tweed Country Sports is located in a somewhat less well-known tweed country, Sweden.  Yes, Sweden is the home to this wonderful shop that is stocked with the clothing necessities of the country gentleman and lady. 

Tweed Country Sports stocks Bladen, Peregrine, Pennine socks & knitwear, Tricker's footwear, Gurteen Esquire,William Lockie knitwear, and John Comfort country ties.  An outstanding collection for anyone interested in being kitted out in durable, warm, and stylish gear.

I stumbled upon Country Tweed Sports in 2008 and since then I have been interested in their high quality goods, and it's always nice to see a non-English gentleman who is apparently possessed by the timeless allure of tweed.  If you haven't treated yourself to a sturdy tweed jacket you surely must do so.  You might even find yourself being drawn in by this beautifully rugged cloth.

So, if you happen to be in the area of Tweed Country Sports set up an appointment and enjoy the shop.  You can  also order online, just in case you are not in the Scandinavia area any time soon.  I know I must have left some things out so Stop by http://www.countrysports.se/ and take a look.   You can also find Mr. Tweed on facebook and twitter, he's a true gentleman.

As Mr. Tweed says,
Let Mr. Tweed be your personal guide to the tweeds, the cords, the tattersalls and lots more. Use them in the field, at the golf course or in the office!
