Q: Hi, Wendy. I know Hunt Seat attire is pretty classic, but are there any trends you are seeing for 2020?
Show Me Again is no stranger to hunt seat attire, and we’ve successfully partnered with Boo Yah Custom Clothing since 2018 to represent the tasteful hunt shirts and hunt coats they offer at a competitive price!
We agree that it’s always safe to dress in classic hunt seat attire, and colors like navy and black never go out of style. What we love are the ring-appropriate variations Boo Yah is making to those colors, offering conservative options as well as choices that appeal to those who like to show a bit more vividly! They also offer subtle accents that result in a luxurious feel for the exhibitor while maintaining an appropriate ring presence.
We’ve consulted with our favorite Boo Yah expert, Elizabeth “Spike” Brewer, to get her input on upcoming trends and what you can expect to see in Show Me Again and Boo Yah inventory.
“The trends for the HUS remain similar to last year with shades of blue and navy coats still being highly sought after, coat fabrics in unique patterns with the velvet, piping accents and covered buttons are still in demand. Shades of gray also are trending and gaining popularity,” she explains.
Brewer says that the trend is expanding to classic twists of the black and navy coats, adding a unique pattern, for example, such as a stripe or check, but still maintaining a classic look acceptable in any arena. “Also, some folks will add the accents such as velvet, and/or piping and covered or fancy buttons to jazz up a more classic coat. Adding the subtle patterns and textures to classic colors is an easy way to be different but still classy, just with a little twist!” she reveals.
