Yes they do. Tweed Waistcoats with leather pads on the right hand shoulder are not just a Hilfiger design but practical outdoor clothing for lodging a shotgun. My tailor has numerous clients active on the shoots with various degrees of traditional outdoor dress. I don't shoot but love game.
To answer the question the guy isn't Savile Row, but that's where shooting suits are likely to come from so I can't help. My advice is buy off the peg and reconstruct to a shooting suit because the weight of tweed (heavy) makes it easy to work with. Bespoke excels for very light weight wools IMOEdited by Hacking jacket - 3/5/13 at 3:32pm
