Show jumping jackets

What are the best show jumping jackets out there? In terms of cut, tailoring, fabric, and finish?

Any pictures?

Dover Saddlery has some really nice jackets. Ariat, Devon-Aire, Ovation, etc. They're really good.

I have a gorgeous Andy Ellis jacket that was tailor made for someone back in the 60's that I am using as my current jumping jacket. I love scouring the second hand stores for something unique It is fine wool, black with a fine blue and red check through it so it looks like a dark grey from far. It has a rather elaborate skirt, very pleated and flared with a teeny waist, I love it :)
Here is a kinda terrible pic...

Depends on your build and budget. The best coat will be the one that looks the best on you and certain brands fit different ways. Ariat, Tailored Sportsman, and Grand Prix make some excellent ones but most of them are around $300-400 range. The Elite (which is made by Grand Prix) and RJ Classics make some decent coats that are a little less. I would suggest trying some on and see what looks the best on you.
The best coats are made of a 100% wool or sometimes a wool blend. Some of the cheaper ones are made of polyester. I have an Ariat that I love that is wool but has stretch panels for easier movement.

I love my Grand Prix jacket - it fits me like its custom made and the best part was I got it on consignment for under $100!!!!!!! So lucky! Love it.

The one thing to remember about buying Jackets is that even though it looks good when you are standing up stright, it may look horrid in the saddle! So swat down like you were on your horse and see how it looks!
