Press Release: He wants to dress Scandinavia in Tweed

— The Hacking JacketA sports jacket initially designed for riding. Usually a longer length tweed jacket with flapped slanted pockets, ticket pocket and center vent. is a good example of a practical and informal yet very elegant garment, explains Karl Oskar Källsner, managing director of Tweed Country Sports.

Invented as a riding jacket around 1850, it is in fact the original jacket as we know it today. Without it the modern business suit might still have tails and be worn with contrasting trousers.

This is only one example on the influence of classic field sports like riding, shooting, golf and fly fishing on the styles and garments of today. The look of the British gentleman has been a major inspiration to many fashion collections. At the same time, rural living is becoming increasingly fashionable. These two trends have created a strong demand for the British country style.

— The interest for the traditional British look among shooters, riders, fly fishers and golfers is constantly rising, Karl Oskar says.
— These are very popular activities in Scandinavia, and they all have a proud British heritage.
