The ORIGINAL wardrobe of the WORLD's Nº1 butterfly hunter

heritage cuts, heritage fabric, contemporary sensibilities

EUGÈNE  LE MOULT

EUGÈNE  was as famous for  his  custom-made  wardrobe, as for being the world’s  most  famous  butterfly-hunter, and  owner of  the  largest  private  collection¹.

He designed, and had  these  clothes  tailored to  wear  on  the  ocean-liner  to  South  America,  and  when  hunting  and  sleeping  in  the  jungle².

¹ indeed,  only  the  collections  of  the  national  museums  in  NEW  YORK,  LONDON  and  PARIS  were  larger

² on  these  expeditions  Eugène  shared  his  tents  with  convict  helpers,  sent  to  the  jungle  for  murder  or  three  convictions  for  crimes, see the  “Papillon”  BOOK or  the movies  with  STEVE  MCQUEEN  and  DUSTIN  HOFFMAN or CHARLIE  HUNNAM  and  RAMI  MALEK)

OUR SIZES DEPEND ON YOUR BODY HEIGHT & WE'RE UNISEX

«People  think  that  hunting  butterflies  is  a  symbol  of  cute  nonchalance.  In  fact  it's  a  sport,  and  even  one  of  the  hardest.  In  France  this  would  mean  constant  walking,  climbing,  sprinting  or  long-distance  running.  In  the  tropics,  it's  the  same  thing,  plus  the  threat  of  wild  animals.»
