Avedon & Colby Receives 2018 Sporting Apparel Award from Sporting Classics
"When it comes to the very best of the best safari clothing, nothing surpasses Avedon & Colby. Their signature field shirt, made of true, old-fashioned, 100 percent cotton long-staple bush poplin, has been designed specifically for the hunter who wants the best in function, durability, practicality, double-tough construction, comfort, and looks. Yes, looks—traditional, practical looks that have evolved from generations of testing in the field. Papa would have been thrilled to wear this shirt."

"Burt Avedon Makes the Best Outdoor Apparel You’ll Ever Wear."
"Today, Willis & Geiger is no more, a fallen victim to corporate greed and the Walmart mentality, where cost trumps quality, but pre-owned items (including clothing, believe it or not) still occasionally appear for sale on eBay at extraordinary prices, and that should tell you all you need to know about the quality of Willis & Geiger—which will also tell you something about Burt Avedon, the man (along with his partner, Susan Colby) behind Willis & Geiger for the last 20 years of the company’s life and the man now behind Avedon & Colby."

"Ever seen a shirt that needs an owner’s manual? Or breaking in? Or that might stop birdshot? Well, OK, not that. But Avedon & Colby’s Signature Field Shirt is like no other in my closet. It has, by my count, 19 distinct high-tech features, eight of which appear to be unique to this garment. Do you know what a “double-reversed underarm gusset” might be? Me neither."
"Whatever it is, that gusset—along with the pivot sleeves, retractable bi-swing back, articulated elbows and tailored side panels—makes this the least-constricting shirt I’ve ever worn. (See what I mean about the owner’s manual?) Swinging a shotgun, aiming a rifle, double-hauling a streamer fly or just raking out the garden after a very long winter—whenever I expect the shirt might bind, it just doesn’t." —Silvio Calabi
