I TOTALLY dislike some of the new style hunt coats. I like the Butt to be covered and find it very unflattering to have the butt sticking out from under a too short coat. It isn't just about tradition. It is about what makes a rider look good, IMO.
I think this is unattractive, personally.
How is this flattering? Where are the graceful lines? Look, I understand getting bored with the same 'ole same 'ole....But change, just for change, is not necessarily good.
