H&H’s Cheltenham Festival wish list

When the wind is howling and you were wishing you’d put on that extra layer, there’s only one place to regain feeling in your toes at the Cheltenham Festival (10-13 March 2015) — the shopping village. And while you are there, it can’t hurt to look.

With just over two weeks until we hear the Cheltenham roar, H&H picks out what will be on our wish list from this year’s trade stands. Best start saving now…

1. A Janie Beardsall belt

Janie Beardsall
Choose from a lurcher, a fox, a hare, a salmon and a horse to perk up your jeans, made by sculptor Janie Beardsall. The buckles are cast in pewter in Co. Durham and the bridle leather is hand crafted by a master saddler in north Yorkshire. It’s also worth having a look at Jonny Beardsall’s hats — statement fur doesn’t get much more glamorous.
Price: £195

2. Cufflinks by Harriet Glen

Harriet Glen
Cut a dash in these racehorse cufflinks, each with a shiny finish and fitted with hinged T bar links.
Price: from £815

When your Barbour has more holes than there is fabric, it might be time for an upgrade. We like this ‘Vintage Beadnell’ version — with its washed distressed look and slimmer fit.
