Put Out More Bunting

At the time of the Golden Jubilee, we created a tweed to celebrate the occasion, so it seemed natural to follow it up for the Diamond Jubilee.

Inspired by the ribbons of the medals that the Queen will be handing out, the tweed has a silver grey background with a red and royal blue over check. From this cloth, which has been woven exclusively for us in Scotland, we have made jackets, waistcoats and trousers. We have also used the tweed to make into bags, flat caps and a picnic rug.

Sometime ago, I found in the market, a silk pocket square which was made in 1937 to mark the occasion of the coronation of GeorgeVI, which we have re-created. On the big day I shall be waving my pocket square and wearing my Diamond Jubilee Tweed jacket no matter how hot it is.

This year there will be no need to put the bunting back in the attic because following on from the Diamond Jubilee is another momentous event to celebrate; The Hackett Rundle Cup!
