Buy hunting clothes
Good hunting clothes are often an underestimated subject, because the pleasure of hunting depends on the right hunting clothes and hunting shoes. And hunting makes quite a few demands on the clothing. Not infrequently, the clothing has to endure a lot. A good hunting boot must be able to withstand the sharp thorns of the blackberries. A jacket that is not waterproof will quickly reduce the pleasure. In short, good hunting clothes will help you to hunt more efficiently. Good clothing is your support in the field: during the cold winter months, but also during hot summers.
You do not necessarily have to be in a hunting specialist shop to buy hunting clothes, but experience has shown that the staff in these shops do have the knowledge to advise you well. They know, better than anyone, what aspects you will have to deal with while hunting.
English and German styles
Two styles dominate the hunting fashion: the English oriented hunting clothes and the German oriented hunting clothes. Nowadays, there is also a lot of good Scandinavian outdoor clothing. This category has made considarable progress during the last decades with brands like Harkila and Pinewood. The Scandinavian clothing is derived from the German hunting clothing, but often equipped with the latest technological gadgets and materials.
The difference between German and English hunting clothes is mainly in the use of fabrics and headgear. English hunting clothing uses many tweed fabrics and flat caps. German hunting fashion makes more use of lead, leather and linen fabrics. In the category headgear you will also find more varieties of hats in the German style. The knee pants, also called knickerbockers, are common in both styles. These trousers have handy knife pockets and are worn with long hunting socks.
