Hunting Research

Last October I headed over to Tokyo to meet up with some buyers and stores over there. Some of you may remember I picked up a book called "Hunting Jacket Research". The function and fitness for purpose these jackets have is unbelievable, some date back to the 20's and they are a major inspiration for outerwear design today and certainly for us. So these are some of the first images from the book. I am trying to get a few copies for the store and online site as it is a major bit of jacket titilation for like minded people!

Absolute clothes enthusiast especially and traditionally the most expensive bit of kit the coat.

love these designs, try and see if you can get a look at some of Nigel Cabourns collection it should leave you with a head spin for a few good weeks after viewing.
