Designing a new tweed is challenging but very satisfying, especially when the new fabric is presented back in the form of a well tailored shooting suit. For us the designing part is now over and we have come up with two new designs to add to the two we were already running. Our most popular suit has been Colour 7 as shown below closely followed by our new green tweed. As the suits are light and dark green it was felt that an influence of brown would spread the range well.

British tweed shooting jacket

Of the two new designs, the first is a wide herringbone with a subtle mix of earthy heather shades. In the true tradition of what tweeds were designed for, this fabric will hide itself on many a moor. Our second tweed takes the same overall shade but has an elegant check woven within it.

All four shooting suits will be stocked from 38 to 52 in short regular and long sizes in the form of jackets, waistcoats, shooting vests and breeks. We will be holding fabric to make plus 4’s, field coats, caps, full length trousers and other items. In 2012 we have been able to fit at least 95% of our customers from our stock selection without having to do expensive special measures.

We think our offer is unique in that we have designed it all ourselves, woven it in England from genuine British wool and then sold it on for the garments to go back to the fields that the wool came from! On a commercial note we are offering these very high quality products at a fraction of the cost of made to measure and with an almost immediate delivery!

Our two new suits will be available from April 2013 although we should have samples available to view from December this year.

Safe shooting

We are delighted to be opening our first retail store on the 29th October 2012. Whilst this is only a factory shop and has no high street presence, we feel it is perfectly situated on the busy A650 between Bradford and Leeds/ Ilkley to be a convenient stop off for lovers of quality country clothing. The shop will be open three days a week being Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 6pm. As the warehouse is manned all week for internet deliveries, we will also accept visits on the other days by appointment. We would recommend the latter for anyone looking for a new Shooting suit or a made to measure garment where undivided attention is required.

To give the shop the feel of a country show, we have erected our show Marquee which works perfectly to separate the stock room and office from the retail unit. The new shop address is as follows-

Unit 7
Tong Park Industrial Estate,
Otley Rd,
Baildon,
BD17 7QD

Appointments can be made by ringing 01274 585272

As well as all our usual quality products we also have a hugely discounted sale rail where we are selling off discontinued styles and shades. We hope to see you soon.

Best regards,

Jon Wall
