SPORTING TWEEDS

We are very well known for wonderful tweed outfits for shooting, fishing, stalking or just plain walking and hiking... but we have an increasing number of clients who share 'the passion' with other pursuits such as golf ,cycling and motoring (more on motoring in due course). 

In the case of  Golf here is a great example of one of our outfits in heavyweight NESS tweed. 
'Hickory Golf' is a fast growing branch of the sport that harks back to the good old days.The player shown is wearing a pair of 'Plus Two's' but some of the growing band of traditional golfers prefer longer 'Plus Fours' that fold over for that vintage look. Out with the synthetics, in with the tweed.


Take a look at our amazing tweed choices here, contact us for a sample of NESS


CYCLING

The success of the annual 'Tweed Runs' around the world has done much to publicise this regal fabric and we were involved early on. What is less well known is that we carefully designed and made a very special suit for an 'Endurance Rider' intent on covering over 2000 miles in the USA on a vintage cycle. 
It was quite a challenge with some special features, comfort and practicality was paramount! It was a great success.
