Do I have to dress traditionally?
We encourage traditional dress, but it is not required. Please consider a jacket for dinner. No jeans, sneakers, camo or shorts on the line, please. Whatever clothing one chooses to wear, three important aspects should be borne in mind – comfort, protection against the elements and an eye for camouflage. By the latter, we don’t mean wearing camo gear such as for duck shooting; rather, you should avoid wearing bright, unnatural colors that stand out. Much of the shooting gear worn nowadays is traditional in style if not necessarily in material. However, there is absolutely no need to be a slave to such traditions.
Trousers are where tradition arrives on the scene. Most people, when shooting in the UK, wear knee breeches, normally made from woolen tweed. Don’t be put off by these trousers; they really are extremely comfortable and dare we say, practical. However, should you prefer to wear normal outdoor trousers, then please feel free to do so. A shirt and tie are traditionally worn (the tie is becoming more optional with every passing year). A jacket can be worn as the matching top half to your breeches, to make the traditional English tweed shooting suit. However, more and more people are taking the option of saving the tweed jacket for the slightly more formal affair of the shooting lunch and/or tea, whilst opting for the more practical shooting alternative of a waterproof coat. Most guns now wear lightweight Gore-Tex jackets – many of which exist. They are extremely comfortable, very warm and waterproof.
