I found a jacket that I fell in love with. It is a grey tweed with a hint of rust and blue. Can I get away with wearing this in the show ring? I know it will be hot so I was thinking of using it for those early march shows where it is still chilly. I know it is more appropriate for the hunt field it is just so darn pretty!
There is no reason you can't wear it to show in, as long as you don't mind being a bit different. Personally I think it would look fantastic, but I'm the type who hates the way everyone looks like clones of each other in the show ring. No judge is going to penalize you for it. Buy it and enjoy it. I'll bet you will get lots of compliments.
I would wear it with a pale blue shirt and rust breeches too.
I have a very similar one and get compliments on it all the time. It is outrageously hot though, perfect for winter shows! I think I paid $300 for mine, on sale probably 7 or 8 years ago, you can't beat $20!
