I'm currently looking for a show coat- up until now my trainer has been nice enough to let me borrow one of hers, but we've been looking into buying one as I'd like to show more extensively. I'm for sure going the Grand Prix route- my trainer has a Grand Prix show coat that she has had since she was in high school or college, I believe; it still looks like new and she has told me that they're a great investment.
That being said, however, I don't know what color to get! There is navy herringbone (Dover Saddlery | Grand Prix Classic Coat - Navy, Black or Red .), navy w/ burgundy (Dover Saddlery | Grand Prix Dinamico Show Coat .), and navy windowpane (Dover Saddlery | Grand Prix Supreme Show Coat.). I don't want to get something that is 'in' right now that I won't like later on, so should I just stick with the navy herringbone? I kind of like the look of the navy and burgundy coat, but my opinion is based off of the picture on the website, so not very trustworthy.
