Over the past few years, the hunter and huntress styles for both men and women have exploded in popularity, stretching beyond the great North and reaching the fashionable cobblestone streets of Boston and beyond. Characterized by forest hues and thick, durable materials, this gear was once reserved for the serious lover of the sport and was grounded in function rather than fashion. The hunter or huntress “look” as its known today, however, is a defined and noticeable trend.
