    You do know people actually live in the country side and go shooting and play polo? :rolleyes:

    Spare me, these are for people from the Home Counties who think the London green belt is the countryside, a landscape so rugged and impassable they need a Porsche Cayenne to get Crispin and Dahlia to school in the morning.

    It can be tough in the wilds of Hertfordshire and Surrey. One definitely needs a 4x4. And green wellies.

    I like it that there isn't too much hatin' on Jack Wills so far in the thread, they seem to have a bad rep on TSR from what I can tell, possibly undeservedly, even if it isn't that much fun walking around with their brand name plastered all over you, at least their stuff is quite well made.

    It's because JW is seen to be the clothing of Tories, and tuition fee-hike sympathisers on here lol You can avoid the branding though, and just have the little embroidered pheasant which isn't too intrusive. I'm not a fan of the clothes with big logos, and consequently, I don't buy that. But most of the stuff you'd never know was JW, like cardigans and trousers, skirts etc because the branding is usually somewhere that isn't visible

    They may choose to wear it but I'm pretty sure it will be more appealing to people from Devon and Dorset.
    I can't say I've ever seen someone in the city wearing full tweeds...

    Are they visible anywhere in England any more? The last time I saw full tweed regalia was in Inverness.

    Yeah. I quite like their skirts actually and I'm not even a huge tuition fee-hike supporter!

    As in does anyone actually still wear full tweeds?
    You get some groups who do. A lot of people do in Young Farmers and like I've said people going hunting
    I think it's a status symbol these days. But then it always was

    I don't hang with the hunters, but yes, I believe there are still tweeds to be found in the Young Hunting circles. :rolleyes:

    No. The prices in HC are really expensive. Too expensive to be compared to JW.

    Aside from those, tweed is a favourite of a certain sort of provincial ex-public-schoolboy playing up to a stereotype, for example Stephen Fry, or this one ex-private-school kid I know who also drinks brandy.

    As someone who does live in the depths of the countryside, rural devon out of term time **** yeah, young farmers wear superdry and ralph lauren with their stupid collars jacked up, they wouldn't be seen dead in tweed.

    The older actual farmers wear basically anything you can buy from mole valley farmers, and this includes basic barbour wax jackets that everyone seems to bum these days with the odd bit of tweed. Anything from the shop linked in the OP does not belong in the proper countryside, and while I don't hunt myself, a large amount of my friends do.

    No, I do agree. I am a massive JW fan and love the quality etc. And I do feel like I'm well-dressed when I put a blazer on, and wear nice tan shoes with my chinos and tucked in shirt
    Good on you. I think the men's stuff is less overpriced than the ladies' stuff at JW to be honest
