Review: Joules Tweed Jacket

A tweed jacket isn’t something I’d ever consider buying for Little Man, but the offer to review one was all too tempting. I’ve seen children of Little Man’s age wearing them in the local supermarket and it looks a bit odd to be honest, but then again at 3 they are hardly likely to go striding through the fields with a shot gun over their shoulder and a pack of dogs. Bit too stereotypical? Apologies.

We were sent a Joules’ boys Tweed Jacket and whilst their clothing is renowned for its quality and I knew that it would be a decent jacket, it far exceeded even my expectations. The detailing on it is exquisite and you can tell its going to be a long lasting jacket. It feels nice and warm, and I am thankful that I ordered it in a size up so he’ll be able to wear it in the Autumn and next Winter.

The design of the jacket is a very classic style for a tweed, complete with elbow patches and cord detailing on the shoulders. It has four front pockets – two with popper fastenings and two with none – and it has a full length zip and poppers to fasten it. I love the tiny details – the word “Joules” on each metal button, the Joules rabbit embroidered on one of the pockets, and the checkered lining. I also adore the name “Mr Toad Jnr Fieldcoat” – very Wind In The Willows! It has a light wadding to it which makes it cosy without being a bulking thick coat, and its sure to keep Little Man warm on chilly Autumn days and even those cooler Spring ones we’re experiencing at the moment.

At £79.95 it is far more than I would ever spend on a jacket for Little Man, but it truly feels worth the price tag. Its a classic piece of clothing and one that will never go out of style, so hoping Little Dude will get chance to wear it too when he’s old enough. A gloriously British jacket and certainly one that could be defined as an investment.
