THis looks much better but all these pics of gun club have put me off the gun club in general. When I see your pic all I see is the gunclub. I was about to get a SC made with this gun club but dont think I will go through with it. Though I like this gun club better than yours in the sense that it has all earthy colors and they wont stand out as much against the background.


Gun clubs are classic ... don't write them off. Keep looking till you find one you like.

These Cucinelli coats, though technically not a gun club, were all the rage last year at SF:

AFAIK, gun club has a houndstooth pattern in it - shepherd check is just a solid color. I maybe wrong though.

^^ Pretty sure that a gun club is not supposed to have a houndstooth.

"The Estate Tweeds took over where the clan tartans left off. As the influence of the clan chiefs diminished in the 1800s, new tenants and owners wanted to take on the tradition of having their retainers clothed in an estate pattern but had no right to a tartan.

"In addition, they wanted tweeds that would provide camouflage for the stalkers - and even the brightest of these patterns do blend in with the heathers and mountain scenery.

"Lord Lovat is credited with pointing out how the colours of heather, bracken, bluebells and birches blended into a beautiful colour effect, resulting in the Lovat estate check around 1845. Lord Elcho took inspiration from the marled colouring of the Lovat to have the Elcho mixture created, a khaki cloth that became the first camouflage uniform for the London Scottish Regiment, and forerunner of others throughout the world.

"The Strathconan emerged from Lord Balfour sending a succession of stalkers up a far hill, where he viewed them thought his glass to see which pattern was the most invisible. The first estate tweed is credited as the Glenfeshie, around 1835, for the gillies and keepers of that estate. And basis for many of the checks was the simple black and white Shepherd check, evident in the Coigach check. This was adopted by one of the gun clubs in the U.S. around 1874, and 'gun club' has been its popular name since then."

BTW, what are your thoughts on the gun club + jeans combo - happy or not?

I liked it, and so did others. So, it's a do-over.
