Safari suit sightings

Safari at the races

From one of our readers, Andrew:

Love the website. I’ve been collecting safari suits for awhile now, I’ve got about 50. I’ve included a few photos from when me and a few mates went to the Esk country Races in QLD (think it was 2006).


I provided my mates all with safari suits and bowling shirts. I also wanted to know have you ever seen a legitimate mauve/light purple safari suit made in the 60/70s ? That’s the only one I want now for my collection.


Andrew, I’ve not personally seen a light purple safari suit but perhaps our readers may have? Please comment below if you have. And, Andrew, thanks for sending in the photos. That’s a serious safari suit collection you have.

The Burberry safari suit

Andrew sent these pictures in. He now has a Burberry safari suit he’s added to his collection. Pretty classy.

This is downtown Hong Kong – where he perhaps got the safari suit?

On safari in Hong Kong. The yellow suit’s pretty lovely too.

On safari in Sydney – as you do.

We inspired some boys in Hanoi

Pete emailed me quite some time ago about a night out him and some mates had. He said:

“Hey folks

Love your gear…and the website.

Your valiant efforts have inspired a few of we lads in Hanoi to don the safari and have a ‘boys’ farewell to some fellow educators who were leaving us for parts distant – Tanzania, Vancouver, Tasmania……”

Below are the photos. Thanks Pete and we look forward to some more shots if you have another safari suit outing. My favourite is the purple safari suit and the toilet roll binoculars are pretty special too.
