Hi just wondered if anyone can recommend ( or pm ) details as too were I can buy a navy jacket that is like a dressage/ or cutaway style for the showring?
I have a really lovely mears jacket and although its a very smart style, with a cutaway 'factor' and waiscoat its black!

and I cant seem to find one anywere that I feel is nice enough to wear in a championship situation ( if we are lucky enough to get through)!! or if I wanted to do a concours de elegance class for exampleany top tips for outfits??? thought would ask the experts!! thanks xx

For true Concours classes, the correct dress is never a cut away jacket, unless you are side saddle, or you choose to do Dressage classes.

Cavallo do one honey but it's very 'dressage' i.e. square with silver buttons and pricey at over 200!!!

I have seen them on one of the showing retailer websites but can't remember where.... I think they look lovely! Although I LOVE proper tails... if you could get some proper tails second hand (well known auction site) I think that would always look best x

Hi

I have just purchased a lovely navy heavy weight wool jacket for my daughter from mrs candy - google and it should come up, service was excellent and the quality is second to none. It arrived with 3 days and they are extremely helpful. I brought it for her birthday to go with her dressage top hat which she will hopefully get to wear at Towerlands

They are quite pricey though - but a real lifetime investment

Hi there thanks Pasha thats helpfulI did have a look and found Caldene Newark - I used to have one of these in the tweed variation I think they were a bit of a fash in the 90's I seem to remember !
I sold mine on ebay, tragic!!! wish I had kept it now..anyway off to look at Loulou's tips now

although,.. maybe I am too old to wear that kind of thing...and need to stand in the corner and think about what I am doing..ha ha !
UI just wanted something smarter than a polyester offering!!!!!!!!!!

I had a beautiful navy Caldene wool cutaway jacket which was actually part of a sidesaddle habit - bought from Robinsons when it was more upmarket than it is now for the first Cherif (1991!) Happy days! I don't know whether Caldene still do the same jacket, or have you thought of Derby House? I had a lovely tweed from there, again going back to the days when they were in their old premises.

SARAH you are not too old!!! BUT I still prefer full tails... much more elegant IMO... A-N-D when you've trained Ramak to PSG you can wear them for Dressage too

Hmm not too sure about a Tweed cutaway... you KNOW I love my BLING (poor Shesky looks like a Swavorski model in the show ring he he) BUT a Tweed cutaway maybe a step too far?!

My tweed wasn't a cutaway, just a normal jacket - I didn't make myself very clear there; just having a fond reminisce - but it was lovely quality which is why I thought DH might do a navy cutaway in a similar quality.

hiya Garnet , happy days indeed!
I first went to cherif in 1998! seems so long ago now...
I am really looking forward to attending this year (without pony sadly) will you be spectating at all?
I will DEFINATELY check out Derby house, thank you
the Pretty Polly jackets are beautiful as well , think i may have to leave tails for future dressage events ,although I dont think I will make PSG somehow ha ha!
the tweed cutaway will have to remain in memory lane I think x
Thanks everyone really helpful

Sazzlepants, I'm sure you will have a brilliant day at the Cherif, especially as it is such a special one. I would love to be there but as I am still recovering from rare autoimmune disease eosinophilic fasciitis I still can't walk very well or stand for long and wouldn't cope with a big day out. Still, at least I am on the mend now - mustn't grumble as Wogan says! Sig pics show said jacket at Malvern and the Cherif - the two best days of the year!
