    Default Can you suggest a ~REALLY~ snazzy dress sheet

    What brand of dress sheet would you consider to be exceptionally snazzy, beautiful, well fitting, classy, etc. It can be any material, I don't care, any color. Don't care about cost, or how many straps it has, or anything like that. I'm totally open to suggestion, but the only thing is I have to be able to get it in a 69 or 70". So tell me what your favorites are!

    The wool triple crown custom coolers are far and away my favorite:

    My Blue Ribbon dress sheet looks just as amazing as a triple crown for a much more economical price.

    I have one from http://www.integritylinens.com

    It's very well-made, and it has held up beautifully.

    When I priced the Blue Ribbons they were only $10 cheaper then the triple crowns...still are according to Dover.The Triple Crowns are $329 and the Blue Ribbons are $319 with no 'extras'. Do you have a cheaper source? I could use another dress sheet and have recently heard good things about the Blue Ribbons but hate to fork over another $300 right now.

    I had never heard of most of these. They are all gorgeous. Keep the links coming, I'm just dreaming away over here.

    I like the classic ones with nice elegant detailing.

    I like my last cooler which had belly bands so that if the horse was left in his stall to finish wicking and lay down it would stay put and not twist and get torn (at those prices).

    What I did not like was it was a dark colour and my horse was grey...

    Victory Canter has a nice sale on this Weatherbeeta wool dress sheet. A steal at less than $70.

    I have to second Integrity Linens. Their web "site" stinks - you're not getting the full picture until you actually see one in person and feel them. They are just, just gorgeous. But be advised, they are also not cheap.

    I think as ar as "snazzy", you're going to get the prettiest plaids with integrity. I changed barns and my cooler is going to be pried out of my cold dead hands. It's so beautiful, I can't part with it. The clothes horse makes the highest quality overall by a long shot, thicker wool, but not as many eye catching plaids. Personalized Products also makes a nice grey herringbone that is really understated and beautiful. RGI makes really pretty sheets as well (including VXF's quarter sheet...drool) but I have never ordered one personally or had a chance to feel them.

    I love the Malvern Saddlery ones too.
    I would sell my husband's motorcycle for one of those

    I have the black/cream/burgundy sheet. The piping, trim and braiding are very nice.
