A vid outdoorsman Ed Shaikh — who also happens to be the dapper designer and owner behind the Dallas luxury menswear, womenswear and lifestyle brand Hadleigh's — celebrated his recent 50th birthday by embarking on a once-in-a- lifetime adventure. Well, actually it was a gift from his wife, Gable, who sent him off on a hunting exhibition to Blixt & Co's sprawling property, one of the country's most distinguished shooting estates for partridge and pheasant hunting, which Shaikh describes as "middle of nowhere Utah, but such a beautiful landscape." During a recent chat, he said, "I've been an avid wingshooter all my life. I grew up in Pakistan, and during my teenage years, my dad and grandfather would take me shooting for partridge and waterfowl — all very traditional English, since we were once a British colony." Inspired by his Utah h u n t i n g trip and the traditional art of wingshoot- ing, Shaikh d e s i g n e d the Bespoke Wingshooting Collection, which is part of the new Hadleigh's Field Shop, with garments and accessories that every chic huntsman (or woman) requires — bespoke suiting, handmade Italian boots, gun cases, cartridge bags, and more, constructed from the finest wools and tweeds from Bologna, Italy, where Hadleigh's factory creates most everything for their Dallas and New York City stores. Standout pieces include the smart Shooting three -piece suit with Hemingway hunting jacket and lined James hunting pants, made to order ($6,595); a Glen plaid shooting vest with blue denim shoulder patches ($1,195); the Upland boot in suede with Hadleigh's blue lining and detail ($795); and the Arno blue shooting shirt with brown corduroy patches ($295). Given the pandemic, Shaikh says that many of his clients have retreated to their second or third homes, which might be in the remotest parts o f Wy o m i n g and Colorado, where this new collection of outdoor heritage wear will come i n h a n d y.
