Sneak peek: The Nosy Parka

Nosy Parka
If you follow us on Twitter you’ll know that the Maude & Fox team have been busy working on some new items.

Making its debut at the CLA Game Fair will be our brand new Nosy Parka.

The Nosy Parka is a traditional fishtail parka with our classic tweed twist.

It features a rusty brown tweed with a bottle green quilted fleece lining. It has a looser fit with drawstring details around the waist and tail – perfect for keeping snug and warm once the A/W season arrives!

We wanted to keep a simple cut to the garment but still include lots of attention to detail. These include the patriot flap, the hidden fox logos and a patch pocket on the left arm and inside pocket.

Getting ready for… The CLA Game Fair

Getting ready for… The CLA Game FairThe text on the sign may say that Maude & Fox is ‘proudly made in Dorset’ but that doesn’t mean we don’t get out and about!

We’ve been busy in our Dorset studio preparing for the upcoming CLA Game Fair, which takes place at Blenheim Palace (Woodstock, Oxfordshire), from the 18th to the 20th July.

Not only will we be running our stand of contemporary tweed clothing (Stand No. D0317) but the Maude & Fox team will also be providing tweed clothing for the daily CLA Fashion Show.

Making their event debut will be our tweed waistcoat, Pom Pom tea cosy, tweed messenger bag, the Nosy Tweed Parka, the Fly Ladies tweed hooded jacket and the Patriot fleece scarf.

Team member Tanya comments, “The CLA Game Fair is one of the biggest on our social calendar. We had a fabulous time at last year’s event. It’s just as well it runs for three days as there’s so much to see and do!

I loved introducing people to the Cherilyn, the Brace Shooting Jacket and the Foxy Sports Gilet last year. along with the prototype for the Messenger Bag! I’m sure we’ll get the same positive response to the latest items from our tweed collection. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing reactions to our new Pom Pom tea cosy. No-one likes a cold cuppa and with its red pom pom, this tea cosy certainly It puts the ‘fun’ into function!”

Come and see us at The CLA Game Fair STAND No. D0317

The CLA Game Fair describes itself as ‘the celebration of the Great British Countryside’ and the team here at Maude & Fox are in total agreement.

The CLA Game Fair is held at Blenheim Palace (18-20th July) in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

The CLA Game Fair began life with an informal conversation between two game-rearing specialists more than half a century ago. Nigel Gray and Charles Coles, whilst working at the ICI Game Research Station, put their heads together and came up with a new kind of social event to bring together the shooting and landowning interests of the British countryside.

The team at Maude & Fox love exhibiting our collection of contemporary tweed clothing at the CLA Game Fair. This year we will have new items on display including our tweed waistcoat, Pom Pom tea cosy, tweed messenger bag, the Nosy Tweed Parka, the Fly Ladies tweed hooded jacket and the Patriot fleece scarf.

You can also see Maude & Fox tweed clothing featuring in the daily CLA fashion show.

So if you’re attending this must-see-show, make sure you come by the Maude & Fox stand to say hello.

Areas of interest include:
CLA Village & Membership signup
Totally Food Show
Shopping with 900 exhibitors (look for stand D0317 for terrific tweed)
Family Trail

Scottish Houndstooth tweed makes this ‘Winston Waistcoat’ a stylish staple for any occasion. This tweed waistcoat is a prefect match with jeans, with shorts or even with a shooting jacket.

Small details like a different coloured top button hole and a tweed jigger at the back set it apart and make it a joy to wear.

Tweed Tea Cosy

Made from British tweed and lined in fleece to keep your tea warm. Our tweed tea cosy is even topped off with a pom pom for ease of use!

Not only are these tweed tea cosies great fun, they’re also very practical too. Please note that they’re designed to fit a regular sized teapot and not a mini one (but that does mean more tea to go round!)

All Maude & Fox tea cosies vary in tweeds and colour, but they all look terrific in tweed. A tweed tea cosy also makes the perfect gift. Although some people may need reminding that they’re supposed to keep your tea and not your head warm. (We have a Patriot tweed cap for that job).

Go on, have a cuppa!

The Maude & Fox Patriot Pom Pom Tea Cosy costs £39.95. Shop now.

Patriotic tweed messenger bag

tweed bag

We recently created this Union Jack tweed messenger bag for Rachel, who got in touch with us after following our tweed tweets on Twitter.

Our tweed messenger bags are available in a variety of tweeds. Interlined with a waterproof lining, these bags are an extremely useful and stylish throw everything in bag. And as it’s a messenger bag size, it’ll easily fit an A4 pad too.

Our standard tweed messenger bag starts at £85. You can see more details here or if you have a unique idea for your own tweed bag like the one pictured, why not get in touch and order something bespoke from our Dorset studio?

Seeing Rachels’ tweed bag flying the flag has certainly got us feeling very patriotic and looking forward to some great upcoming British country fairs.

Next month will see the Maude & Fox tweed team and a collection of our contemporary tweed clothing at the CLA Gamefair (Blenhiem Palace, Oxfordshire 18-20 July).

We will also be exhibiting our terrific tweed at The Chatsworth Country Fair (Chatsworth House, Norfolk 29-31 August) and at The Country Life Fair (Fulham Palace, London 27-28 September).

Keep an eye on our blog for more details about each of these terrific events.
