Hunting suit

Clothes for Men

Inventory number
A hunting suit, with a hunting horn, of the middle of the XIX century, trimmed with a cotton ribbon. It was in such red suits that the men went hunting to ensure that their foliage was clearly visible from a distance, and other hunters would not confuse them with the game. This tradition was formed over a long time and was especially popular in England.
