Hucklecote pure wool tweed shooting suit: jacket, £197 (instead of £375)
Here is a smart pure wool tweed shooting suit to raise your game in the sartorial stakes. A well-tailored set of shooting coat, breeks, waistcoat and cap, it comes from the sporting tailors at Hucklecote in Suffolk. The soft green tweed with teal, rust and burgundy overcheck is elegant, smart, and blends into the countryside.
The suit is beautifully cut, the tweed is the perfect weight at 340g and the suit is fully waterproof and weatherproof. The retail price is just under £800, but your price is £427 for the full suit, or save on the separates, just as you please. Here, the shooting coat, which as a Club Member you can have for £197 instead of £375.
The coat, like the rest of the suit, is not only waterproof and windproof it is well designed. Itts raglan sleeves are comfortable and non-restrictive, the checks matching (sign of a well-built coat) and fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets in exactly the right place to carry your gun, broken over your arm, while keeping your hands in your pockets.
It has everything an elegant yet practical Gun (or any countryman for that matter) needs: the waterproof, breathable and windproof interlining; strong brass two-way zip fastening; studded storm flap; four large pockets inside the smart, silky burgundy lining—three zipped, one large and one buttoned to secure a mobile phone—two front bellows pockets with nylon lining, drain holes, and the all-essential retaining straps to give quick access to the pockets for cartridges.
Sizes 40-50in chest, regular fitting.
