We love the R.J. Classics Ladies' Monterey Show Coat because this coat is perfect for summertime showing with its Italian Jersey construction which permits optimal cooling. The fabric is soft yet sturdy, wonderful for holding up to the test of time. This coat is stylish and stunning making you stand out in the show ring.
For the traditionalist, Monterey offers a 3 button styling with traditional flap pockets, and a hidden interior zipper providing a proper presentation with a perfect fit. This collection highlights a completely unconstructed design, eliminating lining and shoulder pads which allow for maximum freedom of movement. The fabric is a premium imported Italian Jersey that allows airflow between fibers for cooling, eco-friendly fabric construction, quick-drying, and UPF 50 sun protection. The durable fabric features pill resistance to maintain its original appearance through time and wrinkle-free fabric which allows the garment to travel easily. Eco fabric construction ensures a high-quality product with minimal materials or energy wasted during the production process.
Unconstructed design for ultimate freedom of movement
Bought this coat for my return to the show ring after years away. Love the fabric - so lightweight and breathable. Also appreciate no lining. The fit is flattering and the zipper inside the buttons is great to ensure your shirt doesn’t show through any gapping. Not quite as tailored as the Samshield Alix but it was a winner for me.
