Some suits are tailored for certain seasons, and one prime example of a seasonal suit choice would be tweed. Best for autumn and winter celebrations, these pieces are made of dense wool and are crafted to keep you warmer than something like airy cotton. Also, tweed often comes in checkered patterns—whether subtle or bold—and at a wedding, they're sure to stand out in a sea of black suits.

Tweed became especially popular in the United Kingdom, as the fabric originated in Scotland and Ireland, and was worn by farmers before the British upper class got ahold of it. Today, you can find tweed suits in a variety of colors, which can sometimes look more on the casual side. Thus, to keep a tweed suit more formal for an evening wedding, opt for darker colors like a deep brown, green, navy blue, or gray.

Sourced from the best retailers with the most reputable reviews, here's a look at the best tweed wedding suits that are sure to keep anyone warm during the fall and winter seasons.

What to Look for in a Tweed Wedding Suit

Since tweed suits work best for weddings in the autumn or winter, you should look for a suit that will keep you warm without making you feel overheated. Try on different looks and get a good idea of the fabric to ensure that the suit feels comfortable enough to wear on your big day. Tweed pieces can also come in many different colors and patterns, and for a more casual wedding, feel free to play around with hues like light blue or green plaid. For something more formal, opt for darker shades and more subtle tones like black or navy blue.

FAQ
  • Is a tweed suit appropriate for a wedding?

    Tweed suits can definitely be appropriate for an event like a wedding, but you should take the event into consideration. If you're going to a black-tie event or even a black-tie optional wedding, a tweed suit might not be formal enough—especially if it's any color other than black. But if you're going to a more casual wedding or a semi-formal affair, a tweed suit is a great pick.

  • What color should you pick for a tweed wedding suit?

    Tweed wedding suits come in so many different hues, and that's certainly what makes them so fun. The color you choose for your suit should depend on your dress code and overall wedding theme. Opt for a unique shade like light blue or light brown for a more casual wedding, and dark-colored suits like black or deep green, for events that are more formal.

  • When can you wear a tweed wedding suit?

    The best time to wear a tweed wedding suit is during the colder months since they are a heavier fabric. However, there's no rule that you can't wear them during the spring or summer, but they might be too warm depending on the climate.
