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.

Tailoring

Walker Slater made-to-measure is all handmade in-house.

  4. Was at the store in Edinburgh. Waifish Millenial gent manning the store was not helpful and seemed put-out at having to make a sale. I walked straight over to Stewart Christie & Co., where the sales folks were most patient and helpful.
