Competition time – Of nature, not against it

Photo Competition winner – 2019

We’re launching a new photo competition for 2019 – the good news this time is, you don’t need to be the owner of a McNair shirt to take part. This competition is open to everyone.

Inspired by our ethos –  ‘Of nature, not against it’ – we want to see photos that are ‘Of nature’. Amazing things created by nature. It could be a stunning natural phenomena, a grand view, or something small and sublime. Anything nature-made.

To enter, post your pics on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #OfNatureNotAgainst, and tag in @mcnairshirts. Alternatively, email photos to

We’ll choose our favourite photo each month throughout 2019, and the winner will receive a McNair merino hat. In December 2019 we’ll choose a winner from all the entries we’ve received throughout the year – and the prize for that will be a made to measure shirt.

Photo Competition winner – 2019
Dent d’Oche, Tom Fortune

We have chosen a laudable winner for 2019’s #OfNatureNotAgainst photo competition. There were many incredible entries showing nature doing its own amazing thing, so thank you for sharing them with us. It was Tom’s chance meeting with this extremely adept explorer who followed them up the Dent d’Oche that has earned him a made-to-measure shirt of his choice.

Thanks to everyone who has entered the competition. We weren’t sure if we should change the competition, but have decided that since so many of you have continued to send entries over the last couple of weeks, we are going to run the competition again in 2020. Good luck!
