Foxhunting colors are often regarded as a badge of honor and are awarded to those members that have helped in the hunt field above and beyond the desire to fox hunt. Colors are worn with pride, not only on formal meets, but also formal dinners and dances where the invitation offers “Scarlet if convenient.”
Colors denote different roles that each participant plays in the hunt. Gentlemen shall wear a scarlet coat with green collar and brass buttons inscribed with the letters K.H.C., to be worn with a hunter green vest. Ladies shall wear black or navy coat with green collar and black buttons inscribed with the letters K.H.C., to be worn with a hunter green vest.
