    Default Showing with popped collars?

    I've seen girls keeping their collars unrolled or popped, I should say in the smaller height jumpers. Is this a fad? What are your opinions on it? Is this acceptable? I foundapicture across my tumble and was just wondering.

    I've done it (in 1.20m classes) It depends on the person and the class.

    Default I've never seen it

    Don't care for it. Looks sloppy.

    I like the idea of it (cooler, etc), but really don't care for the look with a coat. I can see it actually looking better without a coat. It reminds me of a man wearing a suit with no tie. Just doesn't look right to me.

    Dear God no. I can't stand popped collars in regular life, let alone in the show ring!

    I wouldn't call that a popped collar. That's just a show shirt with an unbuttoned collar. I don't like the look, although it bothers me less without a jacket. I (personally) think it looks sloppy with a coat.

    This is a popped collar -- it's what you do to a polo shirt:

    I don't think you can "pop" a stand up collar...

    Very old school preppy.

    I hate the look, if you want to show, you can put in the effort to button your collar.

    Well duh. Buttoning your collar in the GP seems like a no brainer to me. I might do it without a coat since I'm super sensitive to heat and live in Arizona, but only in the non nominated divisions (which is presently all I'm doing anyway. Ha!) and only if my trainer weren't around. I think he'd have a conniption. We're to be neat, tidy and fashionable at all times.

    I wouldn't wear an open collar in any class that I wouldn't wear a polo shirt in. If it's too fancy a class for a polo, it's important enough to button your collar.

    This should be in the rule books.

    Generally it's in classes where those that can wear a polo or EIS shirt but since some people show both a hunter and jumper they're already in a show coat and shirt. For a lot of those people it's uncomfortable to wear it buttoned. Personally I keep mine unbuttoned until the second I step in the ring because I have a fat neck... It's grounds for disqualification in a GP because GPs call for formal attire.

    I actually know the girl in this picture, and this was just a schooling round , not an actual judged class. She buttoned it right up after!

    I did it once when I didn't have time to change from my show shirt into a polo between hunter and jumper classes. It was just a schooling 1.10 round. I took the jacket off. It was also 100 degrees outside.

    Uggghhhh. Yuck! Looks like some 70's man's leisure suit with an open collar--so NOT a good look!

    Lol Supershorty! Finally a place we disagree

    I wear my collar unbuttoned (not folded over the hunt coat like in your example because I don't care for that look personally) just about every time I walk into a non-formal class.
