Essex Classics has been considered the finest riding shirt available for the English hunter/jumper rider for over 20 years. Using the most luxurious European designed fabrics, the Essex Professional show shirt is exquisitely tailored using over 24 stitches per inch to provide smooth seams.
These fine shirts also feature an eight button front to prevent gapping, long shirt tails which stayed tucked, and two matching chokers. As new fabric technologies developed, Essex introduced the CoolMax Performance Collection using the Dupont fabric which wicks moisture from the skin which keeps the rider cool during competitions. Initially offered in only solid colors, the Essex CoolMax Collection is now available in a variety of stripes and checks.
The latest fashion from Essex Classics to spread throughout the show circuit is the contrasting trim look. Riding shirts which have a normal appearance when “buttoned up” suddenly look relaxed and trendy without the choker, the collar left open, and the cuffs rolled up. Contrasting trim, ranging from floral prints to solid colors, give the shirts a special appeal since they can double as a show shirt and a casual shirt.
Essex Classics remains the leading innovator of riding shirts “raising the standard of equestrian style.”
