The Safari is one of the most versatile pieces of bespoke outerwear available today. Excellent for travel and can be worn in a very contemporary ‘semi-casual’ way.
The roots of the safari jacket are unclear although it was probably invented at the end of the 19th century and it was very popular with the British elite in Africa during the early 20th century.
And for good reason: cotton is cool & comfortable, the pockets have lots of space and the shirt style collar can be opened for comfort. Famous fans of this bespoke jacket were Ernest Hemingway and Roger Moore’s James Bond.
Available in any fabric you wish and made to your exact size and design.
Prices range from £395 for a classic cotton, linen or cord lighter weight look to around £525 for a classic tweed or heavy wool.
