Smart Turnout - Belt and Braces

Wear Your Colours

Smart Turnout was established by former Scots Guards officer Philip Turner in 1999. The company takes inspiration from the institutional colours of the British Armed Forces, schools and universities. If you're an alumni of one of these institutions, then you have lots of choice.

That's the Army Rugby Club Braided Belt above, then you have the Royal Artillery Braces below — available as button-only or combination clasp and button — followed by the Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders Webbing Belt. All of these accessories are made in England.

If you're not an alumni — or you feel uncomfortable wearing the colours of an institution you have no connection with — then you still have a few choices, I think.

And speaking of wearing your colours, I'm working on a Tweed Pig swatch that I'm hoping to translate into ties and such at some stage. Watch this space. In few hundred years, The Tweed Pig could be a heritage brand.
