Musto is a clothing brand based in England. The brand was established in 1965 by Keith Musto, a British Olympic sailor and engineer. Musto sells sailing clothes, equestrian clothing, shooting apparel and lifestyle outdoor clothing.[1]

In 1979 Musto developed the first three layer clothing system for sailors. In 1987 the Duke of Edinburgh presented Keith Musto with the British Design Council Award for his Ocean Clothing. In 1989 Musto became the supplier to the RNLI for its offshore lifeboat crews.[2]

Musto has sponsored British sailor Ellen MacArthur[3] since 1994. They also sponsor the Vestas Sailrocket and Pete Goss and his crew on Spirit of Mystery. In equestrianism, they sponsor Zara Phillips,[4] William Fox-Pitt, Kristina Cook and Matthew Wright. They also sponsor shooting Olympic hopeful Charlotte Kerwood.

In 2010 the company was granted two Royal Warrants from Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.[5]

They worked closely with Zara Phillips to launch a jointly designed equestrian clothing range named ZP176.[6]
