Earlier 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.
The 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.
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.
While I was fully mobile, comfortable, and crisp looking in this shirt I would recommend anyone that feels like they are between sizes to go up because of the French sizing. 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!
