Hoggs of Fife Country Jackets
Hoggs of Fife has been designing and manufacturing tweed and country jackets for quite some years, with outstanding results.
Earlier this year, Hoggs of Fife introduced a new tweed jacket for ladies and called it the Caledonia Tweed Jacket.
1.The Hoggs of Fife Caledonia Tweed Jacket
When designing tweed jackets, Hoggs of Fife think of everything! For extra protection, this waterproof and breathable tweed fabric has been coated with a Teflon coating, making the tweed fabric rain and stain resistant. The Caledonia tweed collection has a Prooftex drop-liner membrane and taped seams and comes with an array of much needed features:
- moleskin collar for warmth around the neck
- 2 way brass zip that is tough
- concealed elasticated cuffs to prevent wind and cold from riding up the sleeve when out and about
- two large bellow pockets with retaining straps
- two handwarmer pockets for those colder moments!
- anti-wicking drip strip around the hem
The Caledonia jacket has been lined with a satin lining, so there is no friction when wearing this tweed jacket over a fleece or your favourite jumper.
This is a perfect jacket, for example, when out horse riding, dog walking or, indeed, picking up the kids from school.
2. The Lexington Ladies Quilted Jacket
This is a beautiful, lightweight quilted jacket designed for ladies. Soft to the touch, the Lexington ladies quilted jacket is made from a diamond-quilted sueded microfibre material (100% Polyester) with a vibrant floral lining.
