Tried and tested
– Top-notch tweeds from Seeland, Owen Beardsmore reviews Sillosock’s goose decoys, and more
Nothing says sharp shooter quite like a top-notch set of tweeds. If you’re on the hunt for some new threads this season, look no further than the Ragley range from Seeland. The beautifully shaped, high-quality garments are, quite literally, made for the shooting field. Far from being simply a fashion statement, the jacket has a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) outer coating, a fully waterproof yet breathable Seetex membrane to keep you dry, and an action back for full freedom of movement. It features large front cartridge pockets, side hand-warmer pockets with poppers (to avoid the dreaded gape), a lower back pocket, and a two-way enclosed zip. Extra touches, like the reinforced leather collar and branded press studs, turn this classic coat into something really special. The Ragley breeks are equally well thought-out, with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) outer coating helping water to bead off the surface, a Scotchgard treatment for stain resistance, adjustable hems with brass buckles for the perfect fit, and a comfortable satin lining. Needless to say, they look nothing short of fabulous when teamed with the matching jacket. Rock that classic style and enjoy the practical benefits of this built-for-purpose shooting attire. The range extends to ladies and children, too; we fell in love with the stunning ladies tweed blazer when we got the chance to try it at The Game Fair. It really is something very special! Available sizes 48-60 in moss check.
