It’s such a quaint sounding concept that you’d think it has been around for a century, or at least a few decades. But the young tradition of a ‘tweed run’ has grown, only recently, to become a wildly successful and impassioned one. Last month’s New York Tweed Run, sponsored (very appropriately) by Ralph Lauren Rugby, brought out the knickerbockers, argyle socks, tweed vests and well-groomed moustaches from the woodwork – turning New York streets into surreal visions of another era.

A little note to Melbourne fashionisers: a Melbourne Tweed Ride will work its way through the city on 27 November, promoting the bicycle as a stylish and sustainable mode of travel.
