A small note from Tom and the Joules team.

11 May

I have often written about Joules Clothing and how they are a great option for tweed at great prices. I love that they have grown from strength to strength in recent years and yet they have kept true to their core concepts.  Tom from Joules has put up a note to the brands fans on YouTube…

Katherine Hooker – Stylish Tweed

Katherine Hooker Collection

The divine tweed jackets and coats designed by Cyprus born London designer Katherine Hooker are some of my favourite contemporary tweed pieces available today.  Famously loved by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate showed her thrifty side by altering her favourite beige herringbone Hooker coat for two different occasions.  First time-worn in 2006 for the Cheltenham gold cup and then again shortened for her first official engagement with Prince William.  See her gorgeous look in the video…

These examples are my top styles from her made to order collection.

All pictures are from the latest brochure.

New styles have been added to the collection..

Finally the wait is over and Katherine Hooker has finally produced a Men’s collection and a

ready to wear collection to buy online . Check it out.

Interesting day in London yesterday searching for the mad chappies taking part in this year’s London Tweed Run.

Eventually caught up with them at TeaTime at the Imperial War Museum.

And a outing (and sneak preview) of one of my upcycled Harris Tweed Jackets (SSh don’t tell anyone)
