Safari Shirt, WR & Co. Westley Richards.

It has taken me many years to get a Safari jacket made which I like, it is one of the areas which over the years I have wasted a lot of time and a lot of £! Having been helped by various designers and factories over the years and being never been quite satisfied, I am very pleased with this safari jacket and shirt which are the start of a range of products that we will be making some of which were designed for us by Nigel Cabourn a couple of years ago. The Linen fabric is from an Italian Mill and was especially made for the project, it is lightweight and very breathable. I hope you will like them and take them to Africa where they belong!

Please see the products online, in our shop!

    Looks good, Simon.
    Do you think the shirt will work well against tsetse?

      I have done this lighter version and will have a thicker version soon. I always wear lighter shirts myself. Personally I don't think shirts work that well against tsetse as a whole, they just bite my arms and neck instead! I prefer the dung burner as seen in the shots from my safari in Rungwa, where there were plenty of tsetse!! So no, this is not the Tsetse model!

        Thanks for the insight, Simon. I agree, actually. I just returned a couple days ago from the Luangwa Valley and Lochinvar where it was astonishingly too hot for tsetse, in which case the lighter shirt would work well. I asked because I have a strong reaction to the bites and recall a recommendation to be air-lifted out of Grumeti Tanzania one year. This time, I went armed with a stronger prescription cortisone cream, antibiotics, and antihistamine. That cocktail only helped tame the bites I received, but the hits to face and neck, lats and shoulders could hardly be avoided on the "cooler" mornings. I'll order one now (or give the hint of a gift) and get the armored version when it's available. Damn, I missed that .425 Deluxe that went up while I was gone.
