Heritage Safari Style: The New Livingstone Gilet

A nod to the styling from decades past, the Westley Richards Livingstone Gilet brings modern authenticity to a very classic garment. The concept for this light-layer came from a chance conversation with a longtime Westley Richards client.

Inspired by an iconic sportsman’s ability to look gentlemanly in even the toughest terrains, this fit for purpose gilet will not disappoint.

At first glance it looks like a cotton drill classic. However, the Livingstone Gilet is actually very modern. Crafted from a water-resistant Italian fabric blend of cotton and polyester, it is softer to touch, harder wearing and more protective than its original incarnation.

Livingstone Gilet, Mountain Breeze Technical Shirt, Safari Trousers, Selous Courteney Boots & Bournbrook 48hr Bag

Fully lined, with big patch pockets, cartridge slots (up to .375) and branded horn buttons, the Livingstone Gilet is that essential ‘just in case’ staple that you somehow find you are wearing all the time because it provides a touch of extra warmth and protection, useful stowage space and is so comfortable you forget you are wearing it.

A quilted shoulder patch and adjustable waist tabs add a degree of extra specialisation for the bird shooter on a hot day or for safari, when a full-sleeve jacket is just too much cloth.

Team the Livingstone Gilet with a Westley Richards Mountain Breeze Technical Shirt, shown here in ‘Woodland’, for its quick-drying, cooling features and generous fit. And our best-selling, classic, Lyell trousers.

The Livingston Gilet is available now, exclusively from Westley Richards.

Alongside its custom rifles, luxury travel bags and high quality country clothing, the modern Westley Richards continues a 200-year tradition of outfitting hunters and adventurers for the rigours of outdoor life. With an unrivalled heritage of safari wear, the company produces a range of luxury safari clothes for the ultimate safari packing list. Inspired by former clients Ernest Hemingway and Stewart Granger each safari jacket, hunting shirt and cargo trouser reflects Westley Richards ethos of timeless style and exceptional quality. Pair a rugged safari shirt and safari shorts with some world famous Courteney boots and a classic safari hat.
