Burgos de Madrid - Teba Jacket
Forget the Spanish Armada — It's History
It's been a few years since the Spanish Armada tried to invade England. Relations have not always been good in the intervening years, but I think it's safe to say that the two countries are now on friendly terms. Just don't try and invade again, eh?
I do my bit to help cement this alliance by unflinchingly enjoying Tweedy's Madrid whenever I can.
Next time in Madrid I will be suitably accompanied by a Teba jacket from Burgos of Madrid. I'm hoping I won't be too hot in the tweed fabric. I think it's starting to warm up over there now.
It's not showing in the pictures, but this type of unlined and unstructured jacket has shirt-style buttoned cuffs, so can be easily dressed down with a polo shirt for the day.
It works just as well with a shirt and tie (and plate of rabo de toro) in the evening. Don't worry about wearing country cloths in town over there — perfectly acceptable.
