Frederic Remington 1861–1909, A Dash for the Timber, c.1889
Between 1885 and 1888 Fredric Remington made a number of trips to the American Southwest, principally to cover the U.S. Cavalry and its pursuit of the Apaches. A Dash for the Timber was his first significant work and launched his career as a major painter when it was exhibited to critical acclaim at the National Academy. This action-filled portrayal of the struggle of life on a dangerous frontier illustrates a group of cowboys being pursued by a group of Indians. The colours and fine details of the scene really bring to life the chaos of the life and death pursuit.

Frederic Sackrider Remington (October 4, 1861 – December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialised in depictions of the American Old West, specifically concentrating on scenes from the last quarter of the 19th century in the Western United States and featuring images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry, among other figures from Western culture.
In the American West of 1881, he saw the vast prairies, the quickly shrinking buffalo herds, the still unfenced cattle, and the last major confrontations of U.S. Cavalry and Native American tribes, scenes he had imagined since his childhood. Seeing the west first hand gave Remington a more authentic view of the West than some of the later artists and writers who followed in his footsteps, such as N. C. Wyeth and Zane Grey, who arrived twenty-five years later when much of the mythic West had already slipped into history.
Remington was one of the first American artists to illustrate the true gait of the horse in motion (along with Thomas Eakins), as validated by the famous sequential photographs of Eadweard Muybridge. Previously, horses in full gallop were usually depicted with all four legs pointing out, like "hobby horses". The galloping horse became Remington's signature subject, copied and interpreted by many Western artists who followed him, adopting the correct anatomical motion.
First, the practical benefits. It is a widely held misconception that this thin layer of material is only used for aesthetic purposes. However, a tailor will look at a jacket lining as a fabric utilised to support the garment. You might notice that the very best looking suit jackets have a certain gravitas, weight and shape that anchors the entire look of a suit. You can attribute much of this ‘feel’ to a good jacket lining, which fortifies the structure and adds weight and heft. It may seem counter-intuitive, but the addition of the extra weight allows the garment to better sit along the contours of the body.Half vs. Fully Lined. This is not as simple as a half-lined jacket is a cost saver, it can also be a practical consideration, with half-lined generally being preferred in the warm summer months, and fully-lined for cooler winter temperatures. It is also worth noting that a lined jacket is much harder to crease.
Now to the aesthetic. The jacket lining deftly hides the interlinings, stitching and raw edges. A properly constructed jacket to sit perfectly on the body is quite a complex construction and a lining allows the remaining evidence of that complexity to be neatly hidden. Finally, to the design itself. A flat colour will complete the jacket, but a bespoke lining will make the jacket truly one of kind. Something that only increases the emotional connection the wearer has towards the garment.

Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our silk linings are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
