Walker Slater - Scottish Tweed Specialists


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.

  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.
