    Default What tack store had the $75 softshells?

    I think that I saw a link here for $75ish (definitely below $100) navy hunt coat from a tack store that was not super common-maybe it was in Canada?

    Not much to go off of, but any help is appreciated!

    Farm House is having a huge sale on their coats right now, but only in store or over the phone. Probably not what you were thinking of, but worth a shot?

    I think you are thinking of Asmar.

    Definitely call farm house. I bought a coat from them last week. I shipped super fast, was a great deal and is gorgeous.

    Yes! Thank you. Do you happen to have any experience with their jackets?

    I am also in contact with Farmhouse on some RJ's

    Thanks everyone-the power of COTH saves my tired brain

    Asmar. I have one and love it. Just as an FYI the website shows all kinds of sizes and colors in stock but I think they're sold out of a lot.

    Is the regular HJ Coat nice? I don't really like pinstripe...
    Also do they just look weird because the model is about 2 inches big?

    I was wondering the same thing. I'd love to see pics of yours, vxf, if you have any.

    I'd love to see some pictures of your coat too. Why don't companies use humans for models?
    Their All Weather Riding Jacket is beautiful.

    I'll take photos tonight! I find it fits fine and I am no toothpick! The pinstripe looks nice to me, it's slightly "louder" than, say, a GP pinstripe but still completely hunter appropriate and subtle from a distance. I have the black too, and it's solid.

    I wanted the soft shell but alas, I am short and even the hunter-jumper coat is about as long as a coat should be on me. I enjoy living vicariously through you guys.

    VXF - Do you have the "soft shell" show jacket, or the "hunter jumper" show jacket? What's the difference?

    Thanks for posting this! I've been wanting a soft shell and who can beat $75. Just hoping the xs fits--I have their "The Hunter" jacket in an xs, so hopefully they run similar.

    Super disappointed, I just got a call that they're refunding one of my orders. Black is sold out

    I just got one of the Asmar soft shell coats. It is extremely nice and a perfect off the rack fit - far surpasses the fit of my $600 Grand Prix softshell coat.

    I am sorry, I've been swamped and haven't gotten to pictures.

    1. Don't get too excited just because you see your size on the website. They are sold out of most colors in most sizes and have been (seemingly) for months and never update the website. If you're really hung up on getting something-- I'd call and ask first before getting excited. They seem to be out of everything but navy, that's my anecdotal experience.

    2. I bought the size small and I am a street size 4/6 (ugh, I need to lose weight, I am bordering on an 8 right now!) I wear RJ classic 4R, Ariat 12R, and Grand Prix 12R. Fits me like a glove in the small. I sort of busty, pretty average all around for that size.
