Windsor & Wales - Isle of Man Tweeds
Isle of Man ThingsI think this might be our first post about something from the Isle of Man, and it's one that combines your favourites: brogues and tweed. A little nonseasonal perhaps, but one of the pieces we're discussing has a limited production run, so you might want to tuck it away for a few weeks.
And it's Isle of Man tweed, gents — not something you read much about.
Isle of Man TweedWindsor & Wales is based in Douglas, Isle of Man. The company sources and creates an all-British line-up of men's and women's clothing.
The jacket has horn buttons and is lined in silk with a hand-drawn peacock design.
Isle of Man Wool
The Windsor & Wales bods amplify the Isle of Man tweed angle with the pleasing provenance of their Peregrine Loaghtan tweed brogue.
The tweed is produced from had-spun wool from the six-horned Loaghtan sheep (bottom), which is native to the Isle of Man.
The goodyear-welted shoes are produced in Northamptonshire, and have a nice little hunting dog print on the insole.
Our first piece on the Isle of Man and I didn't mention the TT Races.
