The Multi-Sport Clothing Brand That Has Become a British Icon
Kieth Musto took part in the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games as part of Great Britain’s sailing team, from here Musto began its story from being a small company making sailing gear, to a renowned British brand. Musto is now regarded as a leader in the high performance clothing category, relied upon by sports men and women for quality and performance. For example, in 2005, Ellen MacArthur broke the world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe wearing Musto Sailing gear. Their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed, in 2010 Musto were granted two royal warrants from Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
But Musto doesn’t just cater to sailors’ needs, Musto made the jump into equestrian wear when Kieth Musto took his daughter to a pony club event in 1987 and spotted an opportunity. Now, Musto is considered one of the most respected names in technical equestrian clothing. One of Musto’s clothing ranges has been inspired by Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and British silver medallist from the 2012 Olympic Games. You can now find this range at Outdoor and Country, featuring the Musto ZP176 Grooms Jacket, which is shower proof, windproof and breathable, making the Grooms jacket both practical and reliable. A summer gilet version of the Grooms jacket is also available, providing a lightweight and breathable jacket for summer riding.
