The student discount only works in store right? I've only ordered off their site once which was when they had that 25% off deal on $150+ orders about a little over a month ago.
Tweed is like wool, but rougher in texture. It's pretty popular in countryside, mainly in the colder parts of the world. You can look for herringbone pattern as well, which is pretty cool and different. For those who saw Skyfall, which is pretty much everyone here I think
, the Scottish gent..that's pretty much dead on with the wardrobe, tweed everything. And when it comes to wool, you have a crap load, man...from merino to alpaca.
If you want to use the student discount, you can have the sales associate help you. Just tell them you want to make a web order via the red phone and use your discount on top. Show them your ID, and you're good. I have 3-4 associates that I know regularly, and those even expedite shipping for me at times on the house. Or sometimes if I can't get to the store, I'll just give them a call, and they'll order it for me. I do this to avoid paying for shipping.
Also, just to note...leather is not that warmth of a fabric. I see some people at work saying they want to get a nice leather jacket for the cold days. What you want is a thick wool set up at that point. For me, leather is good until low 60s Fahrenheit.
