"All you need is tweed!"
This jacket is no exception, it's a perfect addition to any wardrobe if you're looking for a tweed to wear all year round.
Welligogs are a very British company designing and producing very 'distinctively British' country attire. A small company with a big outlook, they have dressed not only me(!) but the likes of Victoria Pendleton, Clare Balding and Jilly Cooper (to name a few).
Their trade mark with this tweed jacket has to be the lovely little proud collar, as shown in the pictures. I love that thoughtful detail.
So lets talk about the Ascot Jacket. I'm pretty petite and worry about the fit of jackets, however, this jacket is cleverly designed to complement most body shapes, the smooth shape of the back just follows the contour of your body. I wore a size 8 and I would definitely say it was true to size, don't panic about the sleeve length though, they come up a bit longer so they can be turned back to show the gorgeous and funky silky feel lining if you wish.
This jacket has many great features, 100% new wool to start with, which is then teamed with moleskin detail on the collar, pockets and cuffs . beautiful buttons on the back and on the cuffs too, not to mention the pretty pink and fun lining.
I have to say whilst wearing this jacket out for the first time at our local point to point I had lots of complimentary comments, what seemed evident was people were loving how different and versatile the tweed was, and I have to say, that is what drew me to this particular jacket.
I can see me using this jacket for day to day activities like the school run, going out for lunch (not that that is day to day!!) shopping and also on an evening out.
Welligogs have a lot more amazing products in their arsenal, so keep your eyes peeled, you'll be seeing a lot more them .
