Walker Slater - Scottish Tweed Specialists
Walker Slater - Heritage from the Loom
Walker Slater produce ready-to-wear and made-to-measure tweed clothing. They live and breathe tweed. Tweed in all its weights, colours and textures. And in twenty years their love of tweed has taken them from the Highlands of Scotland to the opening of shops in Edinburgh’s Old Town and Fulham in London. They recently branched out into women’s clothing too.
A refresh of their website is coming soon, from which they will be able to better serve the global network of tweed lovers, both wholesale and retail.

Notes on Manufacture
Everything from Walker Slater is inspired by and designed in Scotland. Mostly U.K made and sourced. For some of the larger-scale production runs, cloth and designs are sent to top-notch Portuguese factories for finishing.
Walker Slater made-to-measure is all handmade in-house.
