WOMENS TWEED JACKETS BY WALKER SLATER
Our collection of women’s tweed jackets is the product of a deep-rooted appreciation for traditional tweed fabrics combined with contemporary and elegant silhouettes. Our in-house design team, supported by decades of experience, have created a range of signature designs that are versatile, sophisticated and timeless. Working in close proximity with mills and suppliers, we have a carefully selected range of fabrics to create tweed jackets that are easily dressed up or down, and adaptable to any occasion.
THE CUT THE FIT AND THE STYLE
The cut of each of our signature tweed jacket designs has been carefully deliberated by our in-house design team. Drawing inspiration from historical and vintage British tailoring, our designers have created a range of tweed jackets with sharp and clean silhouettes, suitable for anything from formal occasions to everyday wear.
Our tweed fabrics are at the heart of everything we do, as important an aspect of our women’s tweed jackets as the fit is. We offer a range of cloth options, from heritage patterns like herringbones and donegal tweeds to more contemporary windowpanes, checks and stripes. Our range also allows us to offer different weights of fabrics. For lighter jackets, we use tweeds with softer handles; wools blended with cashmere or merino wool to create garments with a soft and supple finish. For heavier items, Shetland or Pendle Tweed provide thicker more textured cloths. At the heaviest end of the spectrum is Harris Tweed, world renowned for its beauty, warmth and robust texture.

THE BENEFITS OF TWEED
Warm, tactile and versatile, tweed is at the heart of what we do. Our fabrics are carefully designed and chosen for their texture and colour, features of tweed that can’t be replicated in any other cloth. Alongside tweed’s natural beauty, it has a number of innate benefits. It’s robust, antibacterial, breathable and biodegradable. Since 1989, Walker Slater has been championing the heritage and sustainability of the fabric through timeless, well-crafted and elegant tweed jackets.

WHAT TO WEAR WITH A TWEED JACKET
We believe that a tweed jacket should be versatile, and able to be worn for a variety of occasions and in a range of styles. For special occasions, a tweed suit remains adaptable; the depth of colours and textures available can be paired with myriad shirt or accessory options. Even a simple roll neck with a tweed suit can create an easy, yet considered appearance. For a slightly more casual, but still sophisticated look, a tweed jacket with the skirt or trousers from another suit creates a softer and less structured tailoring look. Tweed also pairs with other fabrics wonderfully. Cloths like cotton, denim or corduroy coupled with tweed create an effortlessly sophisticated and preppy outfit.
