New year, new kit and a new objective…..

Wow, what a new year it is looking to be! We have designed kit with Civilians, military and police in the last 6 months and orders are flying through the doors. We are having really good fun and success in taking risks an trying new ventures, we only have you to thank.

What drives us? I love a little quote i see now and again through the internet…

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something”

I hope those Mistakes are not too big, i am hoping minor mistakes 😉

This is important for myself and my company, i see this company and its ventures as a challenge to make the best kit we can. Of course i won’t please everyone but by listening to what people say i am going to get bloody close.

Now we have a new year full of shows, we will be releasing all the shows/events we will be attending this year by the end of next week. We look forward to seeing you all there and showing you more of the range. Especially some of the trousers!

We also look forward to seeing some regular faces/companies on the circuit this year, BladeTech, Muntjac trading, Moss Leather , UK Covers , Pace Brothers , SACS , Norman Clarks , The Pigeon Shooter  and our friend dodgey Johnny (Jonathan Cheyne) to name but a few we will see at all the shows. Make sure you pop in and see them as well. Its a busy year for all of us going up and down the country and always nice to see a familiar face.

InTweed will be along side Fortis at the shows this year. We are redesigning and re-branding InTweed to make it very simple and structured to order a bespoke Tweed suit for both Ladies and Gentlemen. There will be the biggest selection of Tweed in anyone place found in the world. We will also offer tartans and other fabrics, there will be many different styles and options to select from and there will be a 21-28 day turn around for a full made to measure suit. The Website will be a step by step guide on what you want, what tweed and what extras you would like. It will also give you a visual lesson on how to measure yourself if you do not know already, we will also offer you a chance to send in a jacket you like for sizing and make a new one to those exact measurements. The possibilities will be there! We will have some of the options available at the British Shooting show in two weeks time 10.02.2017!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The show is a brilliant one for anything in the world of shooting, hunting and general outdoor activities. We love this one and we hope to see everyone there.

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for all of us to try and get it right.”
