Devon-Aire Unveils New Releases at KOP
Horse Tack - Riding Apparel
Today Devon-Aire unveiled the new products they’ll be writing orders for this weekend at Stanley KOP. Journalists are invited to stop by the booth to see and touch all the new fabrics and styles.
Beige Boredom leads to Bold Pinstripes
“Sometimes boredom can be a good thing,” points out Andres Lendoiro, vice-president at Devon-Aire, “it drives you to make new breakthroughs out of sheer restlessness. We were so tired of the industry producing the same old patterns and colors for breeches year after year that we decided to let our imaginations go wild.” Darin deAlvarez, co-vice president added, “What’s the worse that could happen, a Khaki breech?”
The bold Pinstripe Breech is the latest creation among stand-out products in Devon-Aire’s X-Wear line. Available in Pink, Dove, or Blue pinstripes on a black base fabric, the Pinstripe Breech is made with the same innovative fabrics as the rest of the X-Wear line, including the exclusive keep-cool Dev-Tek moisture transfer finish on microfibers, Chevron-stitched Clarino® knee patches, gripper elastic ankles, plush elastic waist, and reinforced belt loops.
Aegis Helmets Go For The Blue
The Aegis helmet line from Devon-Aire was enhanced this year with three new show-ring styles, all featuring the Easy-Fit Dial and lightweight, low-profile comfort. For the traditionalist, there’s the very proper Sterling in luxuriously sueded black at $89.95 in sizes S/M and L/XL. For the hard-core rider-athlete, the decidedly non-traditional Caladesi Graphite in a rubberized shell cleaved with a bold stainless steel center mesh vent in S/M and L/XL for $64.95. For kids making their lead-line debut, the Show Pony! is the first black velveteen show helmet designed exclusively for young children, for $49.95 in size XS/S. These three new helmets join a best-selling line of colorful, comfortable schooling helmets. All Aegis helmet purchases support the USPC.
Hipster CC: It’s the Hot New Cool Cotton
Like the Cool Cotton original breech women have loved for years, the decidedly modern Hipster CC is made with 95% cotton and 5% Lycra, but now in a low-rise hiphugger. Soft, flattering, and oh so comfy, the Hipster CC also features Chevron-stitched machine washable Clarino® knee patches and hook/loop ankle closures. Ladies sizes XS/XL, in Black, Beige, Slate Grey, and Khaki for $59.95
Buks Boot Line: Comfort and Fashion in One Boot
Riders won’t miss a step with the new Buks boot line featuring Unit Grippa Sole (UGS) technology. The carbon steel shank and shock-absorbing insole provide all-day comfort, while the high-traction, urine-resistant outsoles provide durable function. There are two new styles to choose from: The Buks Paddock Boot with traditional zip in oilskin leather for $79.95, or the Buks Jod Boot with stylish lug soles, nubuck leather and side-elastic comfort for $69.95. Each is available in brown or black ladies whole and half sizes 4-10.
