    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

    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.
    Price: £249
