Bespoke Shooting Coat

In The Gear

The inspiration for this design was a Second World War pilots greatcoat. The coat was to be used as a over coat for shooting days in the British Isles and so warmth was a necessary factor in the consideration of fabrics selection.

Our client had family from Scotland and was keen to reference this so we found the most beautiful Harris Tweed that picked up on the Moorland colours on a days Grouse shooting. Lining was also a factor for extra warm we chose a soft green cashmere.

When making a shooting coat the purpose and functionality have to constantly be in the forefront of the mind.  For instance when the but of the gun has been made and polished to perfection as indeed the clients pair of 1920’s Lang & Sons were the buttons have to be polished to specifically avoid scratching the walnut. The pockets have to be deep enough to take cartridges and the pocket flaps able to button up. A collar that can hold its own against Scottish gales is also a necessity. Long buttoned vent at the back for ease of movement on walk up dates - and incase the wearer wants to jump on a bike or a horse.

What makes this coat really exciting is that the pockets collar and reversible belt and made from butter soft kid suede and embroidered with the owners gun scrolling. A process that required precise drafting and hand work. The result is really a beautiful heirloom.
