Feeling shirty

This season, it’s all about the competition shirt and in this feature, designer and MD of equestrian fashion clothing brand Equetech, Liz Hayman talks us through their exciting new collection of competition and training shirts.


Equetech Bella Competition Shirt

This season, we’ve continued to introduce even more choice in our competition shirt collection, bringing together fashion with function.

Our new Peplum Competition/Training Shirt is pretty innovative in its design! Taking this season’s catwalk trend for flare hem detailing, we’ve taken a peplum hemline and put it on a functional shirt which not only flatters tummies but also works under a competition jacket too, thanks to the length that is hidden under a standard length jacket and the rat catcher style collar to accommodate a stock.

You can say so much more with our new Custom Competition Shirts, which put you in the designer seat and via our online ‘Design Lab’ you can create your own unique competition shirt using your own logo or images.

Our ‘Design Lab’ is the place to click through to if you want to create your own bespoke cross-country shirts and hat covers. Easy to use it offers you the opportunity to create your own bespoke look that is certainly ahead of the competition!

Pretty is still perfect and we’ve incorporated some elegant feminine touches to a few of our styles, such as lace panels, fleur-de-lis detailing and crystal buttons. These shirts all incorporate the functional aspects you would expect from a competition shirt but they offer something more, which will make you want to show them off without your competition jacket.

Technical is continuing to feature strongly this season, with our entire collection being made from wicking, quick drying fabrics, as well as our Libertina Competition Shirt takes inspiration from mainstream sportswear with its contour stretch mesh panel back which offers greater airflow when you need it on those hot summer competition days ahead.
