The year is 1965. Steve Gulyas, a retired American aviator, and his wife Edna, who have always been passionate about hunting and fishing, decide to start a project specialising in clothing to combat the cold and offer greater comfort and practicality to those who, like them, enjoy country sports. Realising the great potential of this idea, the couple began to produce the first models once they had settled in Tostock (England).
In 1965, the Husky brand was born, its name a tribute to the faithful companion who used to accompany Colonel Gulyas on his country outings.
Husky immediately established itself as a synonym for the hunting jacket, representing an established lifestyle that is easily recognisable. The refined design, practicality and quality of these garments perfectly meet the needs of consumers, becoming a must-have garment that combines comfort and aesthetics, technicality and versatility. The quilted nylon jacket, which has accompanied the brand’s history since 1965, becomes iconic and an integral part of the Husky soul, symbolising a passion for country sports and a very specific lifestyle.
THE SUCCESS: Husky is chosen by the UK ROYAL FAMILY, establishing itself as a Status Symbol
The success of Husky over the years is evident: the quilted nylon jacket immediately becomes the favourite of the British royal family, who use it as a sporty garment thanks to its fit and durability.
An irreplaceable companion on the horseback rides of Queen Elizabeth and the entire Royal Family, the quilted jacket with its velvet collar is consecrated as a recognisable element of the English style and a very precise lifestyle.
Husky garments are worn by world-famous royals such as Lady Diana, Princess Royal Anne and Captain Mark Philips, establishing Husky as a leading international brand with a unique character, oriented towards excellence and worn by celebrities.
