The muddy terrain called for boots and since the Country House also holds stables and horses the Equstrian look seemed appropriate.
An excellent opportunity to sport a Covert coat with riding breeches and a tweed hacking jacket.
Autumn at the Country House; the beautiful woods in hues of green, yellow, orange and brown and the moisty green meadows are the ideal surroundings for the Covert coat.
I am wearing my vintage bespoke 1957 riding breeches in a Loden green heavy weight cavalry twill. Over my white collarless shirt I wear a vintage yellow woolen houndstooth check hunting waistcoat and a bespoke dark green Tweed hacking jacket with burnt orange overchecks.
Riding boots and white leather garters.
The hunting stock is really comfortable to wear and looks great - mine is a vintage 1950s stock.
On top the fur felt Bowler hat from Christy's London.
If you want see more details on the Bowler, Breeches etc. have a look at this post from 2015: Copenhagen Tweed Ride
