Thread: Tweed suits

  1. #1

    Tweed suits

    Can anyone recommend a good tweed suit supplier? I got a wedding in December and need a new suit so going to get a tweed four piece that I use on shoot days. Found a company that I really liked (Bookster). They have ceased trading which is a shame as they were in the right money and had stacks of choice.

    Booksters, the sartorial options are limitless; you will even be tempted by the stalking jacket....but...as they are not open for orders try...

    If you want something different, have a look at Hoxleigh (www.hoxleigh.com) - you won't see many of these suits on your shoot and they are excellent quality. I'm sure they would make up some longs to constitute the four piece.
