Historic Saville Row tailor, Huntsman has always placed significant emphasis on fine hunting, ridding, and shooting wear. Founded in 1849 by well known sportsman, Huntsman almost instantly established themselves as one of the premiere makers of sartorially savvy sporting & shooting wear.
Whether you are looking to go horse back ridding or hunting this season, it is imperative to approach sportswear with the same keen eye as when bespoke suit shopping. For the beginning of this year’s season, Huntsman advices their customers to look towards a light Gabardine. In the colder month’s options abound such as, fishtail brace backs for your trousers, and elegant tweed jackets.
Special attention should be payed to half-belts, bellow pockets, and vests to ensure a clean and elegant look. One unique aspect of design, which Huntsman is offering clients this season, is custom designed linings based on either a photograph or artwork. One such example is the spectacular client ordered jacket lining below, which has been completed with a ‘Grouse in Flight’ motif. The above details all make way for a functional, elegant, and supremely refined set of comfortable sportswear included with shooting-focused expert design features.
Another standout offering from Huntsman is their time honored tradition of designing and weaving custom tweeds that are masterfully woven by one of Scotland’s oldest mills located on the island of Islay. Additionally, Huntsman also offers clients the opportunity to commission their own custom patterns.
Now that you are thinking of your own custom hunting wear, be sure to remember to consider knitted ties, sharp shirts, and elegant knitwear that can be worn underneath your vest for added warmth in the colder months. Are you a keen shooting enthusiast with soar shoulders? Huntsman offers a vest lined with Technogel to absorb the kickback of your gun. And last but not least, you mustn’t forget the quintessential Huntsman cap.
