The Tweed Run, one of the UK's most stylish events, is returning to the streets of London on Saturday 18th April 2015, for it's 7th annual bicycle ride. 

The Tweed Run is a truly unique and exquisitely British public bicycle ride through London’s historic streets, with a prerequisite that participants are dressed in their best tweed cycling attire. Guests can expect a leisurely day cycling, stopping at some of London's most iconic landmarks to enjoy a spot of tea, a picnic in the park and finally a jolly good knees-up in a beautiful art-deco ballroom for the Tweed Run closing ceremony.

This year the Tweed Run tickets sold out like hot-cakes, but those who missed out will be able to join the cyclists for Bourne & Hollingsworth’s Tweed Run Awards Ceremony, with tickets costing  £20. Offering delicious cocktails, delightful music and delectable food, the evening has been designed to shake out joints and provide the perfect venue for Tweed Runners to let down their hair down after a long day riding. 

Barbour's first ever presentation at London Collections Men took place at Swiss Church in Covent Garden. Guests were welcomed to join the celebration with glasses of champagne and mill around the church hall to see the clothing close up. The presentation was a mixture of clothing on rails and live models displaying how outfits are put together in this collection.

Autumn Winter 2015 looks back to the past, taking inspiration from the 1919 Barbour catalogue comprising of traditional tweeds. This starting point was then introduced to contemporary methods and styles to successfully combine heritage with modernity. The colour scheme was made up of three stories: navy, olive and brown which are all established Barbour favourites.

The Barbour man layers his clothing, pairing cotton shirts with tweed jackets, over twill trousers. For AW15 these were tucked into high cotton socks and smart brogues. Details within the collection included patchwork knitwear, elbow patches, speckled tweed and army camo prints.
