Goodbye And Good Riddance

After that epic winter, I hope I never see tweed again. If you haven’t brushed your old jackets and put them away yet, this weekend might be the time.

Just don’t forget to get outside. — CC

    Already looking forward to the Fall when I can don my tweed jackets again

  2. The artist is Edward Ardizzone, who illustrated many English children’s books.
    For UK people of a certain generation (I’m nearly 50), his art is really evocative.

  3. “Ev’ry season has its cheer, life is lovely all the year!”

    Happy to gently welcome madras, looking forward to tweedy autumn as well.

  4. Good riddance? I’m a little surprised. Then, again, I’m one of those odd ones who actually enjoys cold weather. I wish I could wear tweed all year around.

  5. I’d originally added that as soon as the humidity comes I’ll change my tune. Raised in dry California and with Nordic DNA, humidity actually kind of terrifies me. I prefer the cold, too.

    Also, as a ruthless closet purger I’m down to one spring jacket and one summer. Most of my clothes are fall/winter.

    What kind of brush do you recommend?

  7. Must endorse friend, colleague and longtime sponsor Kirby Allison. His brushes are here:

  8. I wish that I could say goodbye to my tweed for the season! Unfortunately, here on the Central Coast, it got all the way up to a toasty 55° yesterday, so the tweeds stay in the rotation for now. Am actually wearing a cashmere blazer today, and the camel hair jackets are also on the hit parade for now.
