The Dedito brand is named after my dog; my best friend who made this all possible for me and lead me to discover a new life.
The brand “Dedito” was born as a lasting tribute to my best friend…. A painting of Dodi, based on a photograph taken when he was in his prime, was used as the basis of logo you see today and the brand name followed. Dedito was now a registered brand – it was all official!
In the next few shooting seasons, we started to sponsor gamekeepers throughout the UK, providing them with boots.The Dedito brand started to grow and sales started to increase. Year on year we continued to sell more of our trademark boots.
In April 2016, I moved the Dedito office to North Yorkshire in the UK. From this base in rural North Yorkshire, we now offer handmade outdoor boots, wellingtons and tailored shirts, all for both men and women. All our outdoor boots, wellingtons and shirts are handmade in Italy.
Dedito – winning awards
In 2016 we received The Shooting Industry award for Best Footwear 2016; seeing off competition from some of the top shooting industry brands and establishing the Dedito brand as a serious competitior in the market.
We ended the 2016/017 season with record sales of over 700 pair of Dedito outdoor boots.
Our main customer base is predominantly made up of beaters, gamekeepers, walkers and dog handlers; basically anybody who needs a good pair of comfortable, stylish and weatherproof outdoor boots.
To date, Dedito outdoor boots have been delivered across not just across the UK but also to Europe, the United States and other countries.
Tailored shirts made in Italy
Dedito is the supplier of the finest, tailored shirts for both men and women, handmade in Italy. We have over 10 years experience in making shirts for our clients.
At our showroom in North Yorkshire you can design your own shirt, which will be tailormade for you by one of our skilled tailors based in Italy. You have a choice of more than 2000 fabrics, which you can combine with different styles of collars, cuffs and various other options, enabling you to create your own unique shirt.
Quality is the key word for all of our shirts; and for this reason we only work with fifth generation tailors who are based near Milan in Italy. Our tailors specialise in creating bespoke shirts, which is why Shootingshirts won’t work with anyone else.
All of our fabrics are made from the finest 100% cotton woven, by the well-known weaving mill “Canclini.” Once you’ve chosen your fabric, and we have your specifications, we will deliver to you quality, tailormade shirts straight from Italy.
