Introducing 'The Courteney Selous Safari Shirt' at Westley Richards

Some 20 years ago now, Westley Richards took on the main dealership of the Courteney Boot Co. range of boots in the USA and UK. It was an ideal and complementary range of footwear for our brand. The simple truth that every hunter needs an accurate rifle and an a great pair of boots for every hunt, led us to look for the suitable boot to recommend to our customers headed to Africa.

The Courteney Selous Shirt from Westley Richards

I recall very well the sizes of the 2 blisters on the bottom of my feet on the day of my first buffalo hunt in Botswana many years ago. I packed a single trigger .470 droplock rifle and wore a pair of 'custom made' moccasins which looked great, but allowed too much movement, in all fairness I had probably not worn them enough before the trip. Anyway after a long day's march after some buffalo I had to call it a day, it spoiled that hunt and many days after also, whilst the healing took place.

Shortly after this event we took on the Courteney Boots distributorship and we have never looked back. Thousands of satisfied customers have been served over the years and many thousands of miles have been hunted in the boots. The praise for the 'out of box' comfort of the range of boots never ceases to come in. Many times at Safari Club a customer will come up wearing his boots and tell me 'I have been wearing these for 15 years' to which I would quietly think I wish they would occasionally wear out so I could sell you another pair!

All these years later it gives me pleasure to introduce the latest creation from Courteney in Zimbabwe, the 'Courteney Selous Shirt', a safari shirt which Gale Rice, owner of Courteney has developed carefully over the past few years. By bringing together the company's years of experience in the safari field and collaborating with the local professional hunters, Courteney have, I am sure, produced another winning product that will be well suited in your safari wardrobe for many years to come.

The first production is now in the air to us and will be despatched as soon as landed next week. Please order your shirts online here or by clicking on any of the photos.

    FYI..."photos" is plural, not possessive. Sorry...married to an English major (who will now be disappointed in my incorrect usage of ellipses).

    Love the new shirts. Assume we will see them at SCI and DSC? Nicely done, Courteney and thanks for carrying them, WR!

      Thank you. I left school at 16 and went to work, so I am very happy to receive any corrections to my English. I spent most the classes in the corner from memory!

    Nice looking shirt, what weight is the twill? Clever collar!

    Complementary, NOT complimentary.

    The error makes the page seem pretentious
