Rider Review: Winston Equestrian Paris Tech Shirt

logo-colorEarlier this year I won an awesome contest that Luxe Eq and Winston Equestrian paired up to host. A few weeks later I found myself the proud owner of the nicest show shirt I own and will probably ever own. I was given some options and ended up landing on the Paris Tech Show Shirt and wanted to share my thoughts now that I have had it for a few months.

Price: $189

woman_shirt_paristech_001The Winston Paris Tech shirt is a “stretchy textured cotton” which makes it not only comfortable but also somehow not see-through. Megan @ LuxeEq held my hand through the selection process  (she is the bomb guys!) but I probably should have sized up – in the future I will do so.

img_9248 As a junior I tended to lean towards a more fitted style but now that I have a bit more shape I find that I am definitely more comfortable if I have a little breathing room. If you like a fitted style or are of a more slender build and struggle with shirts looking boxy on you then I would urge you to try this or another Winston shirt out. For size comparison I was given a size 38 Paris Tech. I usually wear a 36 RJ classics or a small (tighter)/medium (just right) in the Talent Yarn and Kastel show shirts.

Apparently the shirt looks good though as I have been given multiple compliments from those around me when I wear it at shows. Amanda at The $900 Facebook Pony did a review of another model Winston shirt (among other things) if you are wanting other opinions!

Bottom Line: If you are searching for a nice shirt with a bigger budget the Winston line is something to consider and probably can’t be beat. These shirts offer the benefit of staying comfortable but sticking to a more classic look. Happy shopping friends!

  1. So fancy! I’m so cheap when it comes to buying clothes, so it’s hard for me to purchase show clothes that are “cheap.” Plus I tend to destroy anything that’s white, so I’d probably just buy a couple cheap white shirts and cross my fingers. 😉 If I were showing seriously I’d possibly buy something nicer.
