Too Legit To Quit
Last year, Dino and I discovered foxhunting.
And we are addicted.
While we didn't really need much additional gear in order to participate, I did invest in an excellent non-slip shaped saddle pad, and the next item on my list to acquire was a tweed coat.
My old show coat was just not cutting it in the hunt field. It isn't very warm, it's too close-fitting to wear many layers under on cold mornings, and the smooth fabric is prone to developing snags when riding through brush and closely wooded areas. Plus, I stick out a bit on informal days as the only one not in an earthy-colored, rich-textured coat.
So I scoured the internet and hemmed and hawed and didn't buy anything for a long time, because I'm terrible at spending money, and it was hard to find a coat I really loved that didn't have an exorbitant price tag.
But then we actually got money BACK from our taxes this year, and I pulled the trigger!
I bought my tweed from The Hunting Shop, a UK-based store that carries TONS of new and used foxhunting gear. They provide detailed measurements of each piece so that you can accurately estimate fit without trying anything on. The customer service was fantastic, and I paid just under $150 for a beautiful, lightly-used coat including overseas shipping.
And after a week or so of anxiously stalking the tracking number online, it came, and it's perfect!
