Whether you’re looking for a tweed outfit for your next shooting event, or perhaps a tweed set for wearing about the town, the soft green tweed of our Caledonia collection, from Hoggs of Fife, will keep you warm, dry and comfortable ….and indeed will keep you ‘in fashion’!
The caledonia tweed fabric is a bespoke fabric that’s been designed especially for Hoggs of Fife. It has a green background with a plum and china pink stripe discreetly running through the fabric, making this collection simply perfect for any occasion. The Caledonia Tweed has been carefully woven over in Italy from a mixture of 60% wool (for softness and warmth) and 40% mixed fibres (for strength and durability). All products featuring Caledonia tweed have been Teflon treated for extra rain and stain resistance.
Our fantastic collection includes:
- Tweed jacket
- Baseball cap
- Reversible bush hat
- Waterproof hat
- Cartridge Bag
- Trapper hat
- Faux fur headband
Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed Collection – the jacket
The Caledonia Tweed Jacket has been tailored to a flattering fit. With a good length to cover the back of your legs, this coat features a waterproof, breathable and windproof Prooftex™ drop-liner membrane with taped seams – giving you plenty of protection when needed!
This jacket has been designed without a hood to avoid the bulkiness around the neck area. It does however feature a high soft moleskin collar and a chin storm flap, for great protection against the wind. It’s been designed with many pockets, including two large bellowed pockets, hand warmer pockets and inner security pockets.
Why not partner this jacket with a pair of moleskin jeans or cord jeans? Colours available include black, navy, dark olive or mulberry.
Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed collection – the waistcoat & breeks
‘Layering up” is important to stay warm and comfy when out in the cold. You may prefer not to wear a jumper, so why not consider a tweed waistcoat instead? The Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed Waistcoat features the caledonia tweed fabric on the ‘outer’, along with a luxury ‘inner’ of soft micro fleece lining, with an extended length at the back, for extra protection.
Featuring a soft moleskin collar and designed to a tailored fit, this flattering waistcoat is a stylish waistcoat that looks great over a country shirt and fits lovely under a shooting jacket.
The Caledonia Breeks have also been tailored to a flattering fit. Fully lined for warmth and comfort, these breeks will not itch or scratch!
* The shirt illustrated with the waistcoat is the Hoggs of Fife Bonnie Shirt
Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed Collection – the hats
For protection from the wind and rain – nobody wants a cold head – why not consider one of our Caledonia tweed hats. We have a fantastic range of hats that have been designed with bespoke tweed, to offer ‘all over protection’ from the elements.
e have a hat suitable for just about any occasion! The waterproof twist is an elegant, waterproof hat designed with a caledonia tweed twist around the brim. But, if you prefer a more traditional shooting hat, why not consider the reversible bush hat which features caledonia tweed on one side and an olive Teflon coated fabric on the reverse.
Then, for a more sporty look, you could think about the Caledonia baseball cap, newsboy or trapper hat? These hats are all one size – and are perfect gifts!
If you don’t like wearing hats, or you think you don’t suit a hat, then you could consider the Caledonia tweed faux fur headband as an alternative. This is a reversible headband that’s been designed using faux fur on one side and caledonia tweed on the other. A very stylish and warm band, just perfect for those coldest of mornings!
Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed Collection – the accessories
To complete the ‘look’ you could add a caledonia tweed small cartridge bag and gloves!
The caledonia cartridge bag is a lightweight, stylish bag with a long shoulder strap, leather trim and cotton twill lining. It features cartridge slots to carry up to 5 shotgun cartridges and has an inner security pocket and a magnetic faux buckle front closure.
Then, to keep your hands warm and cosy whilst out in the countryside, our caledonia tweed gloves take some beating! Featuring bespoke tweed on one side and a soft micro fleece on the palm, these gloves are designed with a slight elastication on the wrist, to provide even extra warmth.
