Dressed for the Hunt


The Red Coat Dress for fox-hunting consisted of:-
A silk hat
A plain white stock or tie
A hunting waistcoat
A pair of white breeches
A pair of top boots
No hat-guard
A plain gold, horizontal tie-pin
A red coat
A pair of white garter-straps
A pair of spurs
A pair of gloves (white) leather, wool, or string, or, in the provinces perhaps, tan leather.
The Black Coat Dress was as above but with a black or dark grey hunting coat.

The fox was not particularly bothered what they wore just so long as he kept his coat and brush!
