We know how difficult it is to find well-made country wear that properly fits, has full functionality, looks stylish, and still allows the wearer to relax and enjoy the sport in unsurpassable comfort. It doesn’t matter if you’re an avid fisher, hunting fanatic or simply a lover of the outdoors, your country wear should be of the highest standard so you can get the best results from the sport you love. Based in the heart of the British countryside, Harris & Howard Bespoke are greatly experienced in providing the finest shooting suits and country wear. Weatherproof, durable, flexible, warm, comfortable, and stylish: a quality garment for the outdoors must be all these things and more. We strive to meet all these requirements, endeavouring only to deliver garments of the highest excellence and satisfaction.
Catering to the individual and their specific needs and regularly taking on unusual commissions, we also supply outfits to whole shooting estates. From sturdy tweed shooting jackets and vests to insulating gilets, modish breeks, plus 2’s, plus 4’ s and matching flap caps, Harris & Howard will produce you a piece of sartorial excellence that’ll sustain your adventures and allow you to make the most out of your day in the field. In tradition, the majority of our shooting and country wear is crafted from woven tweed. Perhaps the most quintessential British fabric, tweed is the long-established choice for shooting wear. It’s hard-wearing, warm and weather-proof, plus: it looks great. Priding ourselves on offering only the best tweed woven from British mills, we have an excellent selection of sporting tweeds available in varying weights and designs.
Our Harris & Howard shooting jackets are essential to the modern countryman’s wardrobe – perfect to wear for an all manner of outdoorsmanship. With a range of traditional and modern-day styles to choose from, each jacket is made from hard-wearing tweed, offering a timeless style and, most importantly, durability. The cloth coupled with fully waterproof, cotton Ventile lining will keep you dry and protected in even the most testing of weather conditions.
With a working action back, shoulder pleats, and generously cut in a box-style fashion across the chest and under the arm, the design of the jacket allows plenty of room for mobility when firing a shot or taking a putt, but the cut ensures it’s not too baggy or bulky on the wearer. There’s an array of features and internal pockets to select from for all your security and outerwear needs. These options include deep bellowing pockets with button-down flaps for storing cartilages, a zipped inner poachers’ pocket, adjustable storm cuffs, and lined hand-warmer pockets. Couple these features with gun patches on either shoulder for added comfort and practically when taking aim and a straight collar that can be converted to standing for added protection in the wind and rain. For that added extra luxury, you may even choose to line your jacket with quilted satin lining for a soft, luxurious finish.
A comfortable and breathable garment, the superbly smart Harris & Howard shooting vest can be crafted from varying hard-wearing and weatherproof materials. From tweed to water-resistant Ventile, brushed cotton moleskin or even fleece material if desired, the shooting vest is a versatile garment, ideal for staying cool in the warmer months without the weight of a heavy tweed jacket, or for use as a layering piece in the colder months.
Packed with features to aid you while shooting, our shooting vests feature a gun patch on one or both shoulders, crafted from contrasting suede, leather, wool, or quilted satin. The front has two spacious bellowing pockets, perfect for carrying cartridges. The pockets are elegantly topped in suede or leather piping for an add-ed sophisticated feature and consequently also making pockets that extra bit durable. The vest can be fastened with an optional four or five buttons, and you can choose to have a secret zip-up interior pocket for keeping your valuables safe and accessible while venturing out into the fields. Built to last and exceptionally comfortable, a shooting vest from Harris & Howard is a must-have addition to any country lovers’ wardrobe.
Whether it’s breeches, breeks, plus two’s or plus fours, it’s hard to find a pair of trousers for the field that faultlessly fit and fulfil all your needs. Just like our suit trousers, Harris & Howard take your precise measurements, cut a pattern unique to you, and tailor your breeks to the exact fit and shape you desire.
With all the practical features needed for keeping you protected and dry while venturing out in wet weather conditions, why shouldn’t you treat yourself to a pair of well-fitting, quality breeks?
An essential part of every game or shooting outfit, we craft our breeks from an assortment of corduroy, woven tweed, and brushed cotton moleskin. An exceptional garment, engineered for your comfort, our breeks are classically constructed with single pleats and are fully lined for added ease and fit.
The waistband is fully adjustable and has silicone elastic to keep your shirt in place during your country pur-suits. Featured on each side are deep slanted pockets, and on the back, button welted pockets for holding any extra cartilage. The garment is finally finished with hand rivets and stitched leather buckle cuffs to complete the traditional look.
