In these times of “travel light”, just carrying a small cabin suitcase, we often chose to pack just one jacket with one extra matching trousers. It is the several shirts, waistcoats and accessories which will make the difference to succeed in wearing various outfits.
To guarantee a solid, elegant, robust and dashing basis for my journey I took with me one BOOKSTER Hacking Jacket. This great piece of TWEED belongs to their ‘ready-to-wear’ collection.
The details and perfect finishing touches can be observed in the photographs, but I like to emphasize that BOOKSTER takes great care in the junctions, in considering matching checks, which guarantees a variated and harmonious TWEED ‘landscape’.
Great quality and comfort, timeless style and solidity, totally transcending “fashion”.

Bookster was established by Peter and Michelle King in Herefordshire in 2007 and was borne out of selling vintage clothing in the 1970s which, over time, became renowned for specialising in Tweed.
This specialisation was due to a continued frustration that tweed clothing was only available in a limited number of small sizes. With a growing customer base of demand for Tweed garments (in a variety of shapes and sizes) they decided that the best way to serve their clients was to actually start making Tweed jackets in custom sizes.
Thus Bookster Tailoring was established to introduce The Bookster Original made to order Tweed Jacket. Popularity for the product rapidly grew and soon demand had seen the product range widen significantly, whilst maintaining the Bookster Tweed Jacket as its core focus.
In 2014 Bookster Tailoring was acquired by new owners, with a rich tailoring heritage stretching back over 100 years, and subsequently the company’s headquarters moving to Leeds, a famous heartland for tailoring and cloth production.
The acquisition has only strengthened Bookster’s client offering in terms of product range, customisation options, selection of cloth, fit, tailoring quality and customer service. Today Bookster, still specialising in Tweed, has a customer base of satisfied clients who appreciate the quintessentially British style of a Bookster garment, its’ premium quality and perfect fit.
