Benedict & Hott X The Country Food Trust


We are honored to be supporting The Country Food Trust during their official “COVID-19 Urgent Appeal” to ensure the continuation of the vital work that The Country Food Trust undertakes. The appeal will raise money to provide an additional 250,000 meals to those in need.

Benedict & Hott have proudly created four downtime dressing bundles, taken from our casuals range, featuring luxurious and comforting clothing items to ensure our time at home is as relaxing as possible. 15% from the sale of each bundle will be donated directly to the trust to help those in need. 
 
Each bundle sold will directly support The Country Food Trust whose aim is to show that the countryside community can make a significant difference to people in food poverty, to help during these worrying times for many families and people across the UK. 
 
Since inception in 2015, the Trust have produced over seven hundred thousand meals that have been donated either directly to people in food poverty, charities who feed people in need or through charities like FareShare who distribute food nationwide to other charities. Trustees of the charity include David Gower, Mark Hix and Phil Vickery. 
  
Benedict & Hott is a British brand and we are trying to do everything within our power to spread positivity and help in any way we can.  

 

Summer Style Guide

Summer Style Guide

The sun is out, but there is sill a slight nip in the air, however, the fashion conscious among us have our eyes on the arrival of summer fashion. It is time that you need to start to think about hanging up your winter coat in favour of lighter layers, cool linen shirts & gilets as an extra layer during those social distanced BBQs we are all looking forward to. 
 
Let Benedict & Hott help make this process easier by highlighting 5 foolproof ways  that you can transition from winter to spring fashion…..

1. Get layered. 

One of the easiest ways to cope with the varying temperatures at this time of the year is to partake in some good old layering. Our sophisticated double-breasted lambswool gilets, makes for a stylish wardrobe addition. The padded gilet is the ideal garment for adding warmth and volume to your look and its functional for layering. It is a smart quilted alternative to standard gilets, offering more style points for those who prefer a more polished day-to-day look.

2. Swap in those summer fabrics.

Don’t jump straight to summer fabrics. Despite an occasionally 20°c + day, here in the UK, we often find ourselves in-between clothing items….too cold for a t-shirt, too warm for wool. Why not opt for a light weight spring fabric, such as our supersoft cotton sweatshirt, perfect for more relaxed outfits but hardwearing & warm enough for an afternoon on the river, an evening in the high seat or throwing on when the sun sets on the BBQ

3. Summer ready and squint free. 

When it comes to true summer essentials, a baseball cap is up there with bottle of beer, late afternoons by the river & sunscreen. This essential wardrobe item in the right style can also add some personality to the standard shorts and T-shirt combo. 
On warmer dress down days, use your cap to tie your outfit together by picking one in the same colour as another part of your outfit – be it your shirt or your shorts. Our Flexfit® tactical mesh cap is fitted for style and comfort, it is breathable & lightweight.

4. Embrace the umbrella.

As we all know…the British climate can be quite uncertain! However, keeping our beautiful solid hickory shaft and handle umbrellas, close to hand, will be the ultimate romantic springtime walk accessory. A forest green campy of 106cm, means that they can cover two people with ease.

5. Shooting shirts to lovely linens. 

Switch out the cotton and flannel shirts that are sported during the shooting season. While those are perfect for the cold winter days, it feels and looks out of place in the warmer months. This is the perfect time to switch to more breathable fabrics like linen. A sneak peak at a new item, Benedict and Hott will be launching our new line of linen shirts, to add to our expanding summer wardrobe capsule. Stay tuned to social media for when they go live.

LIVE STREAM DESTINATION EDIT


We are all beginning to feel the walls closing in, so why not have a digital getaway with these amazing live stream feeds. 
There is a trend happening in the travel world where hotels and cities are opening up webcams, enabling us to tap into a world far away. 
 
 Sydney, AustraliaEasily one of the higher-quality videos on this list, Webcam Sydney provides a gorgeous livestream of the Sydney Harbour. You can easily spot the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, and The Rocks in the panoramic shot; make sure to sneak a peak when the sun goes down (which is about when the sun comes up in the U.S.) to see the harbor’s glittering nighttime lights.

Northern Lights, CanadaTrying to spot the elusive Northern Lights usually involves camping out in the cold in the middle of the night, desperately hoping for perfect weather and conditions (and even then it still might not happen). This Northern Lights webcam in Manitoba, Canada, makes the process much easier, letting us watch the night sky from the warmth of our homes. If the idea of waiting for a spark of light on your computer screen is still too much effort, the site also shows a highlights reel and lets viewers post screenshots of their findings.

 Yosemite Falls, CaliforniaThe Yosemite webcam is one of our favorites. It streams the 2,424-foot-tall waterfall’s top section, Upper Yosemite Falls, in its scenic, roaring glory. The peak flow occurs in early summer as the snow starts to melt, but it’s looking pretty awesome right now.Watch the livestream here Trevi Fountain, RomePossibly the most famous fountain in the world, the Trevi Fountain is a Baroque masterpiece depicting Neptune atop a chariot pulled by sea horses. The Roman landmark is typically surrounded by masses of tourists, but currently sits quiet thanks to Italy’s nationwide lockdown. The resulting livestream really shows off the fountain’s design—and it’s strangely relaxing, too.
