Matthew Klein

Responses to a recent question on correct hunting attire for an honorary whipper-in provoked orthodox viewpoints from our Panel of Experts and some unorthodox comments. FHL is always happy to publish thoughtful commentary from our readers. Here’s one from Matthew Klein: foxhunter, professional photographer, and self-confessed contrarian.

As an orthodox iconoclast, I take exception to the notion of "proper attire." Proper, or "correct" being something different from standards of cleanliness, durability, utility, etc.
