Traditionally worn by the middle-to-upper class of Scotland, tweed suits were popular due to their hardwearing nature, water-resistance and style. Tweed became popular with rural gentlemen in search of active pursuits, such as shooting and golf, but has since grown to become a favourite among modern men hoping to look their best at social gatherings, office parties and weddings.
Christopher McGowan Tailoring provides a wide range of tweed suits to fashion-conscious individuals, senior management and sporting personalities in the areas of Glasgow and Edinburgh. These suits can be tailored to the exact measurements of your body or made bespoke in the style, pattern and colour of your choosing.

Known for combining aristocratic elegance with superb durability, tweed suits have surpassed their rural beginnings to deliver high-end style to the discerning consumer. Not only does tweed allow you to look your best on special occasions, but it can also be accessorised or used to complement a casual outfit.
A Variety of Styles
From plain twill and herringbone to gun club and Prince of Wales tweeds, Christopher McGowan can provide the pattern you desire for a truly personalised look. Whether you wish to make a bold statement or prefer to blend in with an understated appearance, tweed serves as an ideal solution that remains comfortable in all weather conditions.
Although plain tweeds are the most common, you can also choose from an array of styles including windowpane, houndstooth, check, tartan, herringbone and barleycorn.
A Suit for All Seasons
Popular belief states that tweed suits are ideal for the winter and should be avoided in the summer – but nothing is further from the truth. A lightweight tweed suit, perhaps in a beige or light blue colour, will perfectly capture the summer season and allow you to cut a dapper figure no matter the time of year. Suits can be accessorised with tweed hats and ties, but it isn’t always necessary to don a full suit to enjoy the tweed style. In such cases, a tweed jacket can lend a touch of class to an otherwise informal ensemble.
If you wish to enjoy the benefits of tweed, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Christopher McGowan supplies tweed suits to clients in Glasgow, Edinburgh and extends its reach to clients nationwide.
