Savile Row’s finest bespoke tailor and shirt-maker celebrates fifty years of Burghley with launch of new cufflinks and ties for the stylish country set
Bespoke tailoring house and shirt-maker Dege & Skinner is celebrating fifty years of support for The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials this year with the launch of a range of new products designed specifically for style conscious Burghley ticket-holders and the country set at large.
A regular at the international three-day event since first taking a trade stand back in 1964, each year the company awards the ‘Dege & Skinner Bespoke Riding Coat’ to the highest placed British rider aged under 25 years old. Previous winners include Olympic, World and European champions Zara Phillips and Nicola Wilson, as well as three times winner Harry Meade and Emily Llewellyn from last year’s event.
The new collection includes an unusual, limited edition, 9ct Rose Gold running fox cufflink, a new design of the company's classic, gilt and enamel or silver and enamel running fox cufflinks, as well as a range of running fox ties in country colour combinations of red/gold, green/gold, burgundy/gold and blue/silver.
Managing Director William Skinner said, “Taking over the reins from my father, we’re proud that so many former winners of the D&S bespoke riding coat have since gained international honours and hope that 2014 will be a vintage Golden Jubilee year at Burghley.”
Last year’s winner, Emily Llewellyn, was measured and fitted by Master Cutter and now Chairman Michael Skinner, but will be unable to compete this year due to injuries to her horse.
