Huntsman’s most notable Safari suit was made for Clark Gable in his starring role in Mogambo in 1953. As well as suits for Gable, Huntsman also made matching safari suits for his leading ladies, Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner, and most recently replicated the original design with long trousers for a charity auction. For all hot-weather excursions, whether you’re on Safari or simply out on the deck, we think the Safari suit is an icon of menswear for cool summer dressing!
