Nothing says I'm on safari like a bush jacket. Some can be dressed up and some can be dressed down though they all say I've got some extreme work/lounging to do.
Any of you guys go for the safari look?
WWII British Khaki Cotton Aertex.
Matching Strides too, of course-
Looking with my good ear peeled.
I'm rather fond of the safari look, myself. I have a old Willis & Geiger bush jacket that I've had for awhile, and a light-weight bush jacket from the original Banana Republic, before they went yuppie. And, of course, a couple of wide-brim safari hats.

During the warmer months, my daily wardrobe looks like something out of Mogambo. I'm still searching for the perfect bush jacket and I'm thinking I may have to go custom to get what I want: British style epaulets (wide base with no "x box" stitching and tapering up toward the button); large pleated chest pockets with maybe chest darts above; and large flapped bellows pockets that are mounted slightly back and on the sides more like a suit jacket, not directly under the chest pockets; and a belt with a removeable leather buckle for washing. Of course, it needs to be made of a decent weight of pre shrunk cotton twill and built with a flattering fit, not some oversized SML sack like styling.
I love "bush" clothing and wear it often.
I've got a W&G bush jacket that I got fifteen years ago when I worked in one the retail stores they had briefly when owned by Laura Ashley. It no longer fits, but I still have it in hopes of someone being able to copy it. I haven't been able to find one as well made since.Originally Posted by Slate Shannon
I've got a Van Husen Safari Jacket I like to wear with my brushed cotton Bill's khakis and cap toe boots. And either pith helmut or safari hat.
That's not true, he never came anywhere near my tabloids!
oh boiled peanuts!
I like to wear foreign surplus fatigue jackets like this FRENCH jkt
I have one from Orvis.
Filson makes good quality stuff albeit a bit high priced. Hope this link works. I do like the style of that jacket. Funny, when I was younger I thought I'd never be caught dead in one of those. After watching my DVD of Hatari, I realized Bruce Cabot looked quite dapper in one.
