Whether you are showing, hunting or eventing, we bring you our pick of the best tweed jackets covering a variety of weights and designs
Tweed riding jackets or hacking jackets are mainly worn for showing, hunting, lower levels of eventing and for children, although there is no reason that they can’t be worn in other disciplines. To be technically correct, they should be accompanied with buff or cream jodhpurs and a coloured stock or tie. Coats made of pure wool are good for warmth during the winter, while the best hacking jackets made using a wool blend are better for the hotter summer months. If you are looking for the best tweed riding jackets specifically for hunting, a wool lining is a good choice while a lighter silk or satin lining will be cooler to wear. There are no rules on the type and design of tweed so which one you choose is up to you, although more conservative choices are more traditional.
