Huntsman And The Safari Jacket

The Safari Jacket is a testament to successful men's tailoring evolution, blending practicality with elegance. Its origins as a utility item only add to its sartorial merit and timeless charm.

Originally designed for the rigours of the wilderness, the safari jacket can be prized for its functionality. It boasts ample pockets, durable cloth to withstand harsh conditions, and a lightweight design for optimal comfort and ease of movement. However, with considered cultivation and refinement today, the safari jacket has been elevated from a mere utilitarian garment to a symbol of refined, ''off-duty'' style.





For Huntsman, our relationship with the safari suit traces back to the golden age of Hollywood, where our bespoke tailoring adorned the iconic figures of the silver screen. Notably, the bespoke safari suits were crafted for Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, and Grace Kelly, who take starring roles in the classic 1953 safari action film ''Mogambo''. Capturing the imagination of audiences worldwide with exotic locations, fierce rivalries and passionate love affairs, this motion picture amplified Huntsman's reputation for crafting garments of sophistication and with a sense of adventure.






It's why the safari jacket still holds merit as a staple of elegant, informal menswear when considering smart warm-weather dressing. This season, Huntsman presents three sophisticated safari jackets for the modern Huntsman. In its evolution, Huntsman's Creative Director Campbell Carey drew inspiration from the rich heritage that shrouds the idea of the safari suit while infusing contemporary sensibilities into the design. The result is a collection of versatile, timeless jackets intended to transition from outdoor adventures to urban escapades. Defined with clean lines, understated details, and impeccable fit, these safari jackets come in two pastel herringbone hues, as well as a chic navy seersucker, making for a versatile addition to any wardrobe, complementing both casual ensembles and more formal attire with ease.





The new Huntsman safari jacket embodies both the spirit of adventure and refinement. It pays homage to its storied past while embracing the demands of modern living. Whether worn on exotic expeditions or city streets, it symbolises sartorial excellence and timeless elegance.
