Great Yorkshire Tweed
Yorkshire Agricultural Society, organisers of the the Great Yorkshire Show introduce you to Great Yorkshire Tweed.
The Society (YAS) has endorsed and supported Brook Taverner who commissioned jackets from the specially designed tweed incorporating the Society colours of green and gold which are available to order.
Following the runaway success of the men’s tailored YAS jacket, the Society has been inundated with requests for a female version.
Tailors and long-time Great Yorkshire Show supporters, Brook Taverner have created two new designs, a fitted, single breasted ladies jacket and for winter days, a heavier weight shooting jacket.
The fitted YAS ladies jacket (£250), is waterproof and windproof, the YAS ladies shooting jacket (£350) is finished with a gold lining.
As well as the ladies jackets, the new female lines include two styles of hat: a ladies cap (£49) and a versatile soft hat (£45).
Note the ‘Yorkshire Born & Bred’ woven on the inside back of the collar, the white rose of Yorkshire lapel pin and the llabel with the white rose and Society crest. Team it with the Society’s official tie and you’ve got a winner!
All are made from a Yorkshire-produced cloth for a Yorkshire organisation through a long standing partnership between YAS and Brook Taverner. The wool is dyed and blended, the yarn spun and woven all at Abraham Moon's – a unique proposition for the Society.
All tweed garments are available to purchase from Clarksons at York and Eric Spencer Ltd at Ilkley, and available on Eric Spencer’s & Clarksons trade stands at the Great Yorkshire Show 2017.
The price of the jacket is £250. There is a discount of 10% for YAS Members on production of their membership card. Sizes available are 38” – 54”.
Also in the range is a matching Tweed scarf, available to buy online from Fodder priced at £19.95 each and a Tweed cap also available to buy online from Fodder priced at £39.95 each, with a 5% discount for YAS Members on production of their membership card. Watch this space as the ladies tweed hats will be available online soon.
