Tried and tested

– Top-notch tweeds from See­land, Owen Beardsmore re­views Sil­losock’s goose de­coys, and more

Sporting Shooter - - THE MARKETPLACE -

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.

RRPs: Men’s Ra­gley tweed jacket, £270; Men’s Ra­gley tweed breeks, £140 www.see­land.com

Made to last, this set of tweeds will see you through many a sea­son in style.
