Writing about his father’s patronage of the Huntsman brand, Anthony Peck said:  “Greg loved the Huntsman craftsmanship. He understood the close, careful work measured in stitches and needles, the absolute, top quality tailoring that goes into the making of each garment. He appreciated the work and timeless design as an artist.”
