Action Back Tweed Jacket Action Back Tweed Jacket


For the man of action; a jacket equipped with a unique, pleated ‘action back’. Originally designed to allow the flexibility to lift double-barrelled Purdey to shoulder, this versatile tweed is equally suitable for lifting single-barrelled Malt to lips. A classic, practical tweed jacket with added give, it is made from 100% Thornproof wool, should thorn bushes become an issue while shooting or imbibing.

I've had mine for a while. It was allowed to rest when, eventually the sun appeared. Now, it'll be back on parade. A wonderfully warm jacket with such freedom of movement. Poor old Bonnie (the Collie) doesn't know I'm cheating! Dan Christie (Posted on 15/09/2013)

I am delighted with my jacket which has been an absolute god-send in the recent cold spell. It is a perfect fit and could not have been better if made to measure. It looks good in the mirror and is warm, comfortable and smart. Perhaps it should get a bonus star as well?? G.Slater (Posted on 19/02/2013)

As with other reviewers, nothing but praise. Bought for my father in law he has taken to the jacket as to the manor born, fulsome in appreciating its quality particularly as he had encountered diffiulties finding one in his size(46S). The gun sleeves excellent for driving in. G.Haywood (Posted on 02/02/2013)

Mine arrived this afternoon and I've hardly taken it of since, except to enjoy putting it on again. It is even better than I had anticipated: the colours are clear but subdued, the tweed is soft as cashmere, the fit is superb, movement is totally unrestricted due to 'action back' and it is warm. This will give my Amplethorpe a few days off in the month.

Well tailored, exceptional quality and very warm. It can be difficult to find a well tailored jacket - espectially tweed - at the larger sizes and this does the job perfectly. Rory P (Posted on 21/01/2013)

What a superb jacket! I have an Amplethorpe jacket that I love and was wearing constantly, I thought this jacket would make a sensible addition to extend its life and I am not disappointed. The fit is perfect and stylish, the tweed itself is excellent and the action back is wonderful as it makes the shoulders a lot more comfortable when driving. Nick (Posted on 21/12/2012)

Wonderful value for the money and warm as toast to wear. Has been much admired. The actual tweed is of high quality and must represent a high proportion of the reasonable price asked. The range of sizes available is impressive - every clothier should offer such a range for distance selling. G.Slatwer (Posted on 14/12/2012)
