Left Field NYC Japanese Tweed Tailored Chinos

The title of this post is quite a mouthful but there really is no other way to share these excellently made tweed tailored chinos with you. It's often a difficult task to find a pair of Tweed Tailored Chinos, as classically these types of trousers are super thick and have a regular cut and fit to them. The fabric is usually quite heavy which makes it good for vests, jackets and outerwear; traditionally it was used for Hunting and Fishing in the UK and Ireland, dating all the way back to the 1800's. The very definition of tweed is a rough, moisture-resistant, durable and unfinished woolen fabric, in either a plain twill weave, with a check or herringbone pattern or in this case, different colour effects are obtained by twisting together different coloured woolen strands to create two or three ply yarns. Of all the tweeds out there, this version with its flecks of colour throughout is easily my favorite.

In speaking with Christian McCann, Founder & Designer of Left Field NYC, he decided to utilize a perfect weight Japanese Tweed and turn it into a tailored fit chino which should keep you warm throughout the winter months while fitting your perfectly. For those extra crispy cold days you could wear a pair of long johns underneath if you really need to stay toasty. The versatility of a pair of tweed chinos is actually quite surprising. You could also pair them with a heavy wool pea coat, some weatherproof oxfords or boots (as shown) or even with just a t-shirt if you happen to be hanging out at home on the weekend.
