Tweed & Tweed

Tweed cap toe flats Sam Edelman, similar here

It seems like most things are originally made for men, like for example tweed fabric. Originally a gentleman's fabric for performance wear, it was durable, moisture resistant, lightweight and warm, just what you needed for hunting in Scottish states (full story here). 
While I had no idea this was its original use, the fabric's current wear only shows that with just the right twist and adjustment you can turn something basic and overlooked into something magic. I can only wonder if when tweed was first used they'd think it could be used in a pair of stylish flats. 
Parece que la mayoría de las cosas son hechas para los hombres, como por ejemplo la tela tweed. Originalmente un textil de uso deportivo por su durabilidad, resistencia al agua y protección del frío, era justo lo que necesitaban los Escoceses para fabricar la ropa que usaban para ir de caza (historia completa here).
No tenía idea de que este era su uso original, el uso actual de este textil muestra que sólo con un par de ajustes es posible tornar algo básico y pasado por alto es una pieza mágica. Me pregunto si cuando utilizaron el tweed por primera vez se imaginaron que con este textil se podrían hacer un par de estilosos zapatos flat.

I like tweed, I like blazers, and I like this kind of daily outfits. I know You have elegant dark pants (a saw them a few times), they would fit great here.

Now a tweed blazer is also associated to one of the most iconic designs from Chanel.

Tweed really is magical! I absolutely love a tweed blazer paired with jeans, too. The contrast is spectacular. And tweed shoes! Yes, please! You look fabulous, my friend. Thanks so much for linking up with me On the Edge!
