In light of this style enduring a mini revival, there are a few characters that spring to mind, gentlemen that wore it well, showing real distinction in the limelight and on the big screen. We have always been drawn to national treasure, Sir David Attenborough, who has perennially adopted the style. Possibly the most celebrated wearer of safari clothing is perhaps the late great Sir Roger Moore who was seen repeatedly as 007, sporting sharply-cut safari garb in no less than five James Bond Films from 1974’s The Man with the Golden Gun to Moonraker in 1979.
This warm-weather staple has seen numerous resurgences over the past decade and our homage offers all the customary hallmarks of the traditional Safari Jacket, including twin epaulettes and multiple flap-secure pockets. The Private White V.C. Safari Jacket has been fabricated, in a series of lightweight fabrics constructed using ultra-fine long-staple Egyptian cotton and flyweight Irish linen, in order to keep you looking and feeling cool in Mumbai, or Manchester.
