Tweed jackets are gorgeous! But have to give a big hell no to the corn colored pants. Omg no no!! I can not handle these at all. I would pair a tweed jacket with the standard "cooler" toned sand/tan color of TS or pikeur.
Here's a jacket im obsessed with, not really tweed but the elbow patches are really cute.
If someone can win me over on the corn pants with a great photo, I will personally buy you a Brenda Breyer doll because that's what they remind me of.
Ah, I see - one of those fashionistas who hasn't been around long enough to remember canary breeches in the show ring.
Those who have know that the corn color is a VAST improvement. Canary needs to make a comeback - it has been correct since time immemorial, far more so than TS puke green.
And it seems to go with EXTREMELY good riders. I was watching the *** event from Saumur online and every rider wearing the corn breeches finished XC clean!
IMO it makes you stand out in a GOOD way - you just need to make damn sure you have the riding chops to match.
Frankly I think the jacket linked to is hideous - wishy-washy colors and cr*p tailoring which really only looks good on fashion models, but hey, what do I know, I've only been in the biz for 50 years! That's a jacket you only wear if you have absolutely zero confidence in your and your horse's ability to find eight jumps at 2'9", or you're on a school horse and are embarrassed about it.

Ok maybe it's just the way the photo looked on my phone? But the corn looks different to me than what I know of as canary.
FWIW I don't like TS Puke green either. The Winston coats are really beautiful, especially in a world of tech fabric jackets.
tweed jacket fine in the hunter ring and too bad hunter ring has become more like dressage - navy or black... used to be lots of people had some type of subtle tweed or plaid jacket (note I said subtle) and saved the navy and blacks for equitation and classics (now shads). If you want to be really correct it would be tweed for day/informal classes and then the solid black or navy for evening or classics and of course w/ dress boots, not field LOL
I have a dark brown tweed jacket that I wear with beige breeches. Here is a link to a picture in it. I prefer it with lighter colored bays and chestnuts- I feel like mine is too much brown on a darker colored bay. It looks solid brown in this picture, but it is actually tweed when you see it in person.
