R. J. Classics Maddie Show Shirt

Farm House Tack & R.J. Classics Ride and Write Review. 

In March we paired up with R. J. Classics to offer a contest where we pick followers of our social media pages to review products for us. In our last contest R. J. Classics generously offered their Anna Mid Rise Breeches AND their ever popular Maddie Show Shirt. Our winners offered amazing reviews with in depth content on both pieces, so we opted to split up the reviews. 

The Maddie Show Shirt offers a wrap collar, fun contrast prints and an exclusive 37.5 technology fabric thats scientifically proven to help keep your body cool when it heats up. Our contest winners had a lot of great things to say about this high functioning competition shirt. Read on and find out for yourself! 

Rachel Morrall

Maddie Show Shirt

Note from Rachel:

This was the first warm show day of the year for me which made the Maddie show shirt the star of the show. I never got sweaty or overheated even showing during the hottest part of the day. I love that the mesh is breathable, but doesn’t feel thin or flimsy, and the zippered neck instead of buttons all the way down was more comfortable under my coat and easier to tuck into my breeches.

I love a classic show outfit since your first impression entering the ring is so important, so if you want the perfect outfit—this is it. R.J. Classics Anna breeches, their Maddie show shirt, and although their Xtreme show coat has been discontinued, any of their show coats will pair beautifully with these pieces.

 

1. What brand and style show shirt do you where most often, and what are your favorite features? 

Noble Outfitters and an older RJ Classics shirt (from 10 years ago)--style/fit/cut, breathable, and comfortable collars.

2. What is your primary riding discipline?

Hunters

3.  What sets the R.J. Classics Maddie Show Shirt apart from other shirts you have worn in the past?

The zippered neck instead of buttons--much easier to tuck into your breeches comfortably. Also--on the first hot show day of the year, I didn't even notice it was warm under my coat. The Maddie definitely regulates your body temperature keeping you comfortable all day long so you can focus on your rides instead of being uncomfortable.

4. What three descriptive words would you use to describe your experience with this shirt?

Comfortable, breathable, and elegant.

5. If the Maddie show shirt was a celebrity who would it be and why?

Daniel Craig as James Bond. The look the Maddie gives me under my RJ Classics Xtreme show coat makes me feel just as suave as he looks in his tuxedos in the Bond movies.

6. What advice would you give to someone considering this shirt?

Try them on to see how the collar fits. I ordered my usual size, but the collar seems a little tight/too tall and chaffed my neck as a result. I think I would be totally fine if I had gone up one size.

7. How would you describe the fit?

It runs smaller than other brands I wear in the same size

8. How well did these shirts do in the washing machine?

Washed up great!

9. What would you rate these from 1 - 5 stars

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Pleasantly surprised (I know it’s not one word), comfy, cool.

5. If the Maddie show shirt was a celebrity who would it be and why?

Not sure. But I feel like the unassuming best friend character who was great all along but you didn’t fully appreciate until the end of the movie.

It has a lot of stretch, so try of different sizes to see which fit you prefer.
