A Hume is a treasure trove of country clothing, offering clothing, accessories and gifts for anyone who spends time in the country, including Dubarry boots (and boot liners), Argentinian polo belts, William Lockie knitwear, Barbour jackets, tweed jackets for men and women, RM Williams boots and far too much more to list here. As I said. A treasure trove.
Based in Kelso, on the banks of the River Tweed, and very near to Hawick, the home of Scottish cashmere, A Hume is uniquely placed to source and offer the best selection of country clothing online. They offer a bespoke service, carry out all their own alterations in house and also specialise in larger sizes, offering shirts up to collar size 20” and jackets up to chest size 50”. They commission unique items for their own A Hume collection as well, which you won’t find anywhere else either on the high street or online.
Some of their best sellers include Estribos Polo belts, Dubarry boots (essential for anyone who lives in the country), shooting socks by House of Cheviot, engraved buckle belts by R M Williams, sterling silver cufflinks by Murray Ward and plaid shirts by Viyella.
Couple the amount of choice online plus the very personal, efficient and friendly service you’ll find here (forget the call centre – this is the actual store you’ll be calling if you need to talk to someone), and once you’ve shopped here you may well not want to go anywhere else.
For gifts for the country lover this is a seriously good place to have a good browse. A Hume offers a next day delivery service within the UK and a speedy service worldwide. You can also order online and go and collect from their shop if you fancy a trip up north.
The last date for orders before Christmas is Thursday 22nd December for the UK and Friday 16th December for Europe – but make sure that you book the right service.
