Jacket (quilted)

Husky

Established 1965

Created in 1965 by Steve Gulyas, a retired American aviator, the quilted Husky jacket is a synonym for hunting jacket and one of the most copied jackets in the world. Gulyas teamed up with Saverio Moschillo, a leading maker of tailored luxury clothing and accessories, and produced the first models shortly after settling in Tostock (England). Gulyas named the jacket after the breed of polar dog that he used to take with him on country walks.

Combining the advantages of a raincoat and a wind jacket, the quilted nylon jacket became an immediate favorite of the British royals, who used it as sportswear. One of the hallmarks of the English Style, the Husky jacket features details such as a hairline velvet collar and piping, and chevron stitching at the neck. The Liddesdale from Barbour and the Denham jacket from Lavenham are noteworthy competitors, but for royals and people in the know there is only one brand: Husky.
