What To Wear
How to look stylish and elegant whilst keeping warm and dry.
The Head to Toe Guide
A smart tweed flat cap: Schoffel make a stunning range plus a variety of hats. Here we also have to recommend hearing protection – this is essential after all it’s your hearing at stake. Cens is one of the best makes on the market. Eye protection is also advisable particularly when grouse shooting.
The Top Half of the Body
Start with a good base layer, Harkila & Ridgeline’s new ranges are excellent. Follow this with a shirt and tie, jumper or gilet – again look at the range from Schoffel or Laksen. Finally a good quality shooting jacket in tweed or plain fabric. Once again, we would recommend Schoffel. However, if you want something very stylish, then for men there is London’s smartest tweed produced exclusively for West London Shooting School.
The Lower Half of the Body
Once more, we would suggest a good base layer especially in the colder months. Breaks in plus 2 or plus 4 style our preference is for plus 4s as they are a bit longer. Schoffel, Ridgeline and Harkila do a number of different styles and fabrics.
For the Feet
Traditional good quality shooting socks and garters with a decent pair of wellington boots from Dubarry’s, Aigle, Hunter or Le Chameau. If you don’t want a wellie then we can highly recommend the Le Chameau Leather GTX walking boot – a lot warmer with greater support.
