Purchase: Since my daughter has been in Leadline, up until 2006, I always had her show coats custom made at one of the most prestigious shops by one of the best tailors. I "accidentally" stumbled across the RJ Classic coats while browsing at our local retail tack shop. I purchased two RJ Classic Hunt Coats in 2006- And couldn't be more happy!
Likes: In comparison to the expense of a custom coat- I LOVED the price. I've never found on that truly ran "true to size" and the RJ Classic coats did! I've never been impressed with the fit, quality, fabric or selection of "off the rack" jackets. RJ Classic Hunt Coats changed my outlook. The fabrics are fabulous & current, everyone thought my daughter was still wearing custom coats. And for less than $200- you can't beat the price! Two thumbs up and a gold star for the crew at RJ Classics. I bought her our 3rd RJ Classic for the 2007 season. It met with RAVE reviews at her first show of the season.
Dislikes: I can't think of one thing I don't love about the RJ Classic hunt coats.
Quality: The quality is excellent. The fabric, colors, patterns are current. Good selection of styles and choices. Jackets run "true to size".
Summary: I highly recommend this jacket. I am not easy to impress and I'm very picky, especially when it comes to turning my daughter out in a professional, workmanlike classic & current style for the show ring. It's more affordable than the Tailored Sportsman, Grand Prix, Elite, etc- and with growing kids- the RJ Classic line of hunt/show coats get a two thumbs up and a gold star across the board.
Usefulness Rating: 2.4 out of 5.
