Ariat&reg; Triumph Show Shirt
This is the best shirt I have ever bought. I wanted a shirt that would work with my new stretchy show coat, and this one works perfectly! It's stretchy, super easy to wash and dry (dryer or hang) and is very fashionable. Shrinkage is minimal to none. I have both a size 38 and 40 (true to size), and the only difference is about 1/2 inch in the sleeves. The tone on tone pattern gives it nice detail. In the heat, it is very cool and dries quickly. This will be the only shirt I buy in the future.

This shirt is really a neat shirt. It has stretch coolmax on the back, sides and sleeves which allows for lots of stretch when you move. The collar, front and cuffs are a traditional poly fabric to give a nice "show shirt" look. I have worn this shirt 2x and it was so comfortable. It's machine washable and dryer safe. I have both the 38 and the 40 - can't tell much of a difference in the bust, but the sleeves are about 1/2" shorter on the 38. I would say the shirt runs true to size.

Great show shirt!
Love this shirt! Very comfortable and very attractive! Really like the snaps, instead of buttons. Throw it in the wash and it comes out like new!

Comfortable and Innovative shirt!
Can't rate durability since I've not yet shown in it, but I do think this shirt will be a Godsend when showing outdoors, in the sun, in the middle of August! It truly looks like a classic white show shirt under a jacket, but the technical mesh panels are soft and stretchy - which are super comfy and helps reduce bulk under your hunt coat. The mesh panels are quite see-through even when dry, so I highly recommend you wear a tank top underneath. I tend to wear shapewear under all my show clothes anyway (the SmartSlim cami, for example) so that isn't a big deal to me, but I thought I'd mention it as some may find the transparency bothersome.
The shirt has a hidden placket which is a nice touch - looks very dressy and also allows the shirt to close with snaps instead of buttons. Handy!
The shirt does run a smidge small - the mesh panels do stretch so may not be a problem for most folks if the fit is close, but I'm quite busty so had to exchange for the next size up. It looked ok in the smaller size, but just felt a little too close for comfort particularly since I did not know if it would shrink in the wash.
I did wash and iron the shirt (avoiding the mesh with the iron) when I received the correct size and it looks great. It did NOT shrink, though I did wash in cold and laid it flat to dry.

Really good shirt
Looks classic from the front, no bulk under your sleeves in a riding coat. I love this shirt! The fit is tailored and modern plus the arms are finally long enough! I hope they make more!
You don't really need the loop on the collar for a real stock tie, but it's not too obvious when under a coat.

Looks great feels cool
I really like this shirt. The front and cuffs look like a classic show shirt, but it is lite and breaths great and has plenty of stretch. Very easy to care for. It may run a little big but not enough to return for a smaller size.
