Tweed Shooting Waistcoat and Tattersall Shirt from Cordings

Photos by Salt Water New England
As the start of the shooting season (Glorious Twelfth) finally approaches, one thinks of reaching for tweed.   The Shooting Waistcoat is a natural choice, ideal for warm weather, and Cordings offers some exquisite examples.   Beautifully made in England of surprisingly lightweight Scottish Tweed,  this waistcoat is thoughtfully designed for shooting but can also be worn for general field use.

Made in England of Scottish Tweed with Alcantara Gun Patches
This Made in England Shooting Waistcoat is in the Cordings House Check, one of several rich tweeds that are offered.
Used Here as a Unisex Item
Cordings also offers a great Loden cloth option.

  2. I was in London the week before last and stopped by their charming store. The summer sale was on and I picked up two of their incredible silk scarves.

    2. Grouse and the shooting starts on the 12th of August, the Glorious 12th. It's an unusually hot summer in Britain so it will probably be too hot for tweed and tattersall shirts.

  5. Any recommendations for women's tattersall shirts?

    1. Cordings have some on offer even though the sale has ended officially. They remain priced at £45, down from £65. Laksen is another option, widely available in country stores.

    1. Dan, you seem to be unaware of one of the key tenants of Prep. Layering, or an item of outerwear, is key, regardless of the season. Indeed, the heavier the outerwear, the better, since it instantly conveys that the wearer lives (i) in New England; (ii) near water or mountains; (iii) without the possibility of ever sweating; (iv) in the case of many Prep ladies, for any chance to dress like their father.

  7. Is there anywhere to buy these shirts in the US without a $45 shipping charge?

    1. Cordings may be willing to send them by post rather than Fed Ex or whoever they use. It's worth calling the London store to ask.

    2. That vest will team well over Muffy's sweater and turtleneck collection :)
