What to wear shooting: cracking the code!
As a part of our 12 days of shooting, today we are covering the ultimate style guide for the main event, the sport in hand.
Low flying and fast: a challenging combination. Driven grouse shooting can correspond with some of the warmest days of the year, conjuring up images of beautiful still purple moorland, light skies and no need for a raincoat. Often, the reality is that you will be exposed to some extreme weather and end up pretty much braving the elements all day long! As with any day on the peg (or in the butt) it is essential that you are well kitted out, to ensure you can focus your attention on the day and birds in hand.
Allow Benedict & Hott kit you out from nose to tail…

Benedict & Hott – The Full Monty…
If you’re on a formal shoot, many Guns will be wearing a three-piece tweed suit with matching breeks, waistcoat and jacket. It’s a very smart look and is lovely to wear when it’s not raining. Even if you aren’t a great shot, you do look the part!
Benedict & Hott – Shooting Jacket
At this time of year and hopefully if the weather is kind to you, a tweed jacket is a is ideal smart jacket for arrival and those early drives. Team our Teflon® coated technical jacket with Benedict & Hott matching breeks, for a practical and smart outfit.
Benedict & Hott – Shooting Vest
If you know the day is going to be clement, a shooting waistcoat can often suffice, rather than a full jacket or waistcoat. Benedict & Hott have two shooting vests, designed to have a more tailored cut, yet is shorter than a traditional shooting vest, giving a modern cooler look. The spacious bellow cartridge pockets, have retainer straps to ensure you have easy access when reloading. An impact protection pad can be placed in an inner pocket on the right-hand shoulder for those bigger days.
Benedict & Hott – Breeks
Breeks are essential for a day on grouse, and our Teflon® coated and fully lined breeks add both style and are cut for comfort and ease of movement. Perfect for a long day in the butt or walked up.
