British country clothing (photos)...

Some time ago I promised one of our mods that I would produce some good links for "how to wear British country clothing". Having failed to do that, here I will post some random photos I've encountered during my travels across the internet.

These photos provide excellent examples of how middle-class Brits wear their country clothing when pursuing outdoor field sports. We will see many waxed jackets, tweed breeks, and modern "Gore-Tex" shooting jackets in action. As I've said before, I used to subscribe to The Field, a stuffy magazine devoted to British country life and sports. It was well-illustrated with genuine country folk doing their thing and the photos posted below are authentic.

Once the outdoor photos are posted, I will post some photos of people getting ready for the post-shoot dinner and festivities.


PS: What won't be seen are the rural working class serving as beaters, etc. It would be nice to have some photos thus, but I simply don't as yet.

Are they fleece or wool?
I have a Barbour that was made for Orvis. I like it a lot more then Polo or Patagonia ones I have owned.
Thanks for the information on this one.

I’m not sure the mocs work with the Cargos. Better choice would be flip flops. The popped collar finishes the Guy Fieri in Britain look.

Love BRG!


Yes, but wasn't it considered bad luck after Jim Clark's death?
I bought some Aigle mid length boots last winter. I wore them today to walk the dog. Makes raining and 4c seem a lot more pleasant. They are surprisingly good to walk a few miles in.
Well, there is this guy making a legitimate Defender copy. He tried to buy the old tooling first
For some reason IG has decided that I am a potential buyer of one of these.
Yes Orvis. I have a few and the quality is excellent.
In all of my fantasies, the women have heads. A photo like that doesn’t work for me.
Pictorial proof that our friends on the other side of the pond, and their beasts, can appear/seem a bit anal retentive at times! We Yanks would just slop through that little puddle. LOL. ;)
In £10,000 bespoke Riding Boots one must be careful.
Bacalao when done right is delicious. We were in Vittoria Gasttiez a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it as a spread and as a fritter.

Basque cuisine is delicious, sadly my experience with the language led to a few unpleasant experiences while in the Rioja.
HP sauce is for your bangers or scotch eggs.

We had a lovely gentrified British Food experience at a joint called the Mayfair Chippy when we were in London pre Covid.
Wellies for me all day long. Swap the Crop for a Trowel as well.

drpeter. I am a huge fan of Primadonna aged Gouda.
I cooked many game birds in cooking school but not a one in a restaurant.
I have a tweed shooting jacket from New Forest Clothing. It is made in the UK, is very warm and is a few pence under £100.

It was warm enough for a -16c dog walk on Monday.

I wonder if cigars are part of the British Country lifestyle?
