Tweed Shoot Coat: Dubarry Ballyfin for Men

Photos by Salt Water New England
The Dubarry of Ireland Ballyfin Tweed Shoot Coat is a substantial, worthy addition to a wonderful category of outerwear.  Nicely finished, Teflon coated, waterproof, and made of a handsome 100% wool tweed, it is a bit longer than their earlier Ballyfin, and overall, generously sized.  It is built to be a shoot coat but also transitions smoothly to a more in-town or business casual setting.

Those who often reach for their Barbour jackets may easily find shooting coats even more convenient and useful, certainly ideal when the weather turns colder.

As business clothes get more casual, some may wear this over oxfords and khakis in places where they used to wear a Brooks Brothers heavy wool overcoat over a suit.
