    Default My Brown/Cream Outfit You Guys Helped With!

    So a few months ago I was asking opinions on my new competition outfit and we all agreed on brown and cream. I had ordered 2 brown coats (the one I love love love sadly did not fit and I now have to sell) and finally procured all other pieces of the outfit. Let's see if I can attach a picture for you guys that wanted to see it when it was complete...

    Stunning! I love the coat, particularly. Would you mind sharing the brand/model?

    The coat looks black and the hat looks brown.

    The coat is dark brown (as are my boots) and has a fine lighter brown pinstripe. It is pretty darn dark and I agree doesn't really look brown except in closer up pictures. The coat that I got at the same time that sadly does not fit is a bit lighter with a cognac collar and if I can find it in my size I will definitely buy it. The coat is Cavallo and the model is Grunox (I think) and I had it shortened to the length of the Galathea (the other model I bought) because I'm short and hate sitting on my coats in the saddle.

    Gorgeous! I love brown on a dark bay. Do you mind sharing where you got your cream parts? Breeches, gloves, pad, etc? I am putting together a navy and cream outfit for next season.

    The breeches I got from the lady on ebay: Eldragonverde I think is her name (the woman in Spain). They are Cavallo Championesse. I got lucky and she got a pair in because that's the model I really wanted. Tell me if you haven't heard or or can't find her and I can find her email address. Gloves are Roeckl ordered from my local tack store. Saddle pad is Eous (couple of places to order one). The stock I found on ebay as well for I think $8 shipped from England. I think I just put "stock tie" into the ebay search screen. It took some work but it all came together! I just really wish my other brown coat had worked :-(

    Just got lucky with the dark bay! ;-) He belongs to a friend that had a hip replaced. She got her silver on him and is letting me finish my bronze on him and maybe maybe maybe I can start (finish?!) my silver on him too. He's quite the challenge to ride but a really cool guy!

    HCF: Pikeur makes a nice cream in the Lugana too. That was my backup plan but I prefer a lower waistband with my short torso for if/when jackets are waived.

    You guys look awesome! I love cream with brown or navy - not a fan of white on my chestnut overo.
