About Essex Classics
Essex Classics has been considered the finest riding shirt available for the hunter/jumper rider for over 30 years. Since its inception, Essex has continued to raise the bar for equestrian style by combining function, fine tailoring, and innovative design. Honoring the smartly traditional look of hunter/jumper apparel with the latest technological advances in equestrian attire, Essex combines revolutionary fabrics in a classic styling for men, women, and girls.
Always on the forefront of equestrian apparel, Essex Classics set the trend for show shirts with their innovative Wrap Collar shirt that eliminates the need for a choker. Designed with a collar that neatly and effortlessly snaps into place for a flawless presentation in the show ring, it also features beautiful Italian silk trim inside the collar and cuffs for a fashionable and sophisticated appearance outside the ring. The Essex Classics Wrap Collar shirt is fabricated in silky, moisture wicking performance CoolMax fabrics that provide superior breathability and comfort.
Now, Essex Classics has developed a new cutting-edge collection of high-tech Talent Yarn shirts. Combining the innovative Essex Classics wrap collar with a nanotechnology performance fabric, this revolutionary new show shirt actually reduces your body temperature to keep you feeling cool and refreshed. Additionally, the Talent Yarn shirt offers long-lasting UV sun protection and is anti-bacterial and deodorizing. It is designed with a tapered body fit, under-sleeve mesh ventilation panels, and contrasting fabric trim.
Essex is the show shirt of choice for many of the top competitors in the equestrian world. As Olympic medalist Anne Kursinski states: “The Talent Yarn shirt is incredibly cool, light, and allows total freedom of movement. I love that it is stylish and athletic at the same time. This is the most comfortable show shirt I have ever worn.”
