View Full Version : Black show jacket?

Sep. 16, 2009, 09:17 AM
I need some fashion advice! I've got a couple show jackets in my closet and they are the typical colors - navy with a light plaid pattern, greenish brown with stripes (basic, non-offensive RJ Classics jackets). I have the opportunity to purchase a nice black, wool show jacket from someone at the barn, but I am wondering if this is still "stylish" or appropriate for the equitation/hunter ring. It's plain black. The girl I'd buy it from only shows in jumpers now, so this jacket has been in her closet for about five years. Will I ever need a black jacket for more formal situations (eq classics, etc - I have a shadbelly for hunter classics)? I could get a good deal on it but don't want to waste even a small amount of money if I'll look funny wearing it :) Thanks for any advice you can offer!
