Like many of you I am sure, I have started looking online for presents for the family but end up looking for things I would like myself. Here are a few which grabbed my attention.
Sowerby Cheltenham Boot
Sowerby Stanton Boot
New to Westley Richards are the new range of traditional ‘Dealer’ boots from Sowerby of England. The Sowerby family has been crafting boots since 1927 when brothers Arthur and William opened their first shoe and repair shops in the Midlands.
Still a family run business, the third generation of Sowerbys are committed to supplying Dealer boots that combine quality, reliability and style that remain original to the founders manufacturing traditions.
Whether in the country or the town the quintessential Dealer boot should be a staple in every mans boot room.
Schöffel have delivered best selling shooting outerwear for some years now, their outerwear is widely used and respected in the shooting field here in UK. The Ptarmigin has been modified over the years with different fabrics being used but the cut remaining the same. Schöffel’s latest innovation for this shooting coat features a GORE-TEX® Two layer laminate. The Ptarmigan Extreme provides extreme weather protection for the ultimate shooting performance. The coat has a great cut for shooting which allows plenty of room for the swing which many shooting coats fail to do. This combined with its ability to keep out the elements, be lightweight and warm makes for a winning design once again.
The Schoffel Oakham men’s fleece and Ladies Lyndon have become a ‘staple’ product in every shooting persons wardrobe. This season brings some new colours and the return of the Navy. All the new colours are now in stock for the season.
The sun in Africa will beat down on your head all day and “ball caps” are not necessarily the best solution for protection. The traditional Pith Helmet can be found in antique shops and a vintage one will have much more character than the new versions. Tilley make a lightweight and practical range of hats and the new “Camo” version is good and sure to be a welcomed gift for your tracker on departure or put a few in your bag and you will befriend all the staff on arrival for sure!
For those wanting something a little more special John & John Morris Jr. of The Rocky Mountain Hat Co. make a really great product and have a superb eye for style and fit. It is a real pleasure to do business with the Morris’ as I found out when ordering the hat above.
