Francisco's Teba Recommendations
Following the piece on Burgos of Madrid, Spanish reader and Teba jacket enthusiast Francisco has provided a few helpful recommendations for those wishing to obtain a Teba. Thanks Francisco.
Justo Gimeno of Zaragoza
Francisco regards Justo Gimeno of Zaragoza as a very traditional place for Tebas. He believes Justo is a 'friend and collaborator' of Burgos, Madrid.
It just so happens that Justo Gimeno produce the woollen navy Teba jackets sold by Last of England (top).
Bel y Cia (1842) of Barcelona
Francisco also recommends Bel y Cia of Barcelona. You see a summer-style Teba of theirs in the picture above.
Francisco has been in possession of a couple of their Teba jackets for over ten years, and they are still in great condition.
Though he regards the quality on a par, he feels there are subtle differences between the Barcelona style of Teba from Bel Y Cia and the Madrid style from Burgos. The Barcelona style is more cardigan-like. (Or is it more jacket-like?) Best try one of each.
