I'm a huge fan of Italiana Maremmana style ranching or hunting jackets. Beretta is the only sportswear company I know still producing this style of garment. Here's a jacket from my collection that is no longer in production (Beretta is only making the jacket in Moleskin). Alongside the Filson Upland Jacket and the Barbour Beaufort, the Beretta Maremanna is a masterpiece of pocketing. The jacket sports hand warmer pockets, buttoned shell pockets, game pockets and a rear carrying pocket. It even comes with a rear zip-down pocket on the back which can be opened for ease of movement (when the pockets are full of game and shells, I’m assuming). If you have any photographs or original print ads featuring non Beretta made Maremannas, please let me know. I'd love to add more images of this rare garment to my historical archives.
