Shooting Attire: It's Open Season!
August 12th is one of the most important days on the shooting calendar: so much so that it is widely known as the 'Glorious Twelfth'. In the UK, the date is the opening of the shooting season for ptarmigan and red grouse, an activity that supports hundreds of jobs and makes a significant contribution to the economy.
The Glorious Twelfth is a long-standing tradition that dates back almost two centuries, with the introduction of the Game Act of 1831. Open seasons for most other game animals begin on September 1st, with the seasons for pheasant and woodcock opening a month later on October 1st.
If you're planning on a spot of shooting in the upcoming months, then you're going to want to look every inch the part. Here at Vareys Town & Country, we have a wide variety of top-quality shooting attire in stock: let's just hope that your aim is as good as your appearance when wearing these garments!
Our collection of shooting attire includes:
Schoffel Ptarmigan Tweed Shooting Coat for Him
Carefully crafted from lightweight English milled tweed fabric with a genuine GORE-TEX® lining , the Ptarmigan Tweed Shooting Coat from leading brand Schoffel is designed to fully protect you from the elements while keeping you cool and providing full freedom of movement. The sport cut of the design ensures the very best lift for shooting while a pair of roomy, fully-reinforced bellow cartridge pockets, equipped with retainer straps and drainage holes, allow for fast, reliable cartridge access.
Available in Windsor Tweed or Blenheim Tweed options,
the garment boasts a strong, stain-resistant Teflon® finish. To celebrate the Glorious Twelfth, this stunning coat is currently available with a massive £141 price discount.
Musto Sedgemoor Jacket for Her
At the top of the range among Musto jackets is the Sedgemoor, a delightful investment piece that is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing. Whether worn around town or while out shooting on the moors, the Sedgemoor is an all-round top performer that will become a go-to garment long after the hunting seasons are over. The jacket benefits from a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish, which encourages moisture to bead and thus be diverted away from the jacket surface, keeping the wearer completely dry.
With diamond quilt stitching details, handy pockets and a stormflap equipped with a comfortable overreach top section, Musto's Sedgemoor jacket is nothing less than a work of art. A key feature of the garment is the addition of studs, which protect it from any potential scratching caused by gun stocks. Exclusively available in a Red Chilli colour option, the Sedgemoor jacket is currently available with a 50% discount on the standard price.
