UPDATED MARCH 2017: The Fior Da Liso Brand has been discontinued/retired as of January 1, 2017. Please do not contact us for details regarding specific shirts.
In an earlier post, we covered how the versatile Fior Da Liso collection is. There are so many colors, patterns that make it easy to have a different look for every day of the month. Add to that, you can pair the shirt with either jeans, dress pants or even a skirt.
Here we present the latest Fall Styles from the exclusive Fior Da Liso collection. All these shirts are made from light weight fabric with easy care instructions.

The riding clothing industry is undergoing a transformation. New technologies are being introduced. Nowhere is this more apparent than in competition shirts (show shirts) and breeches. We just received a new shipment from Cheval, of their revolutionary Polo Show Shirts that doubles up as a polo shirt.
The Cheval Polo Show Shirt is made from super-light stretchy cotton. The fabric itself is high quality, unlike the low grade cotton used in some show shirts. It feels extremely light and comfortable. It breathes and dries very well….it does NOT get stinky. This is one of the major features of this shirt.
2-in-1 Polo Show Shirts (Polo Shirt and Show Shirt)
This 2-in-1 Polo Shirt and Classic show shirt is a cute and dons a fitted look. When using as a show shirt, you simple wrap the collar, sleeves roll down under jacket. When used as a Polo Shirt, unbutton the top collar buttons, then roll up the sleeves and snap them to the side, showing a beautiful trim. The versatility of this shirt makes it a favorite in our book. This shirt is brand new to the market and being introduced at the WEF by TACKNRIDER exclusively.
The Cheval Polo Show Shirt has pearl snap buttons.
The shirt comes in several color options, with white as the base. The collar and sleeves trim are different color, giving it a sporty fashionable vibe. The Cheval shirt is tapered to fit well.
The shirt is made from 77% cotton, 5% Lycra and 18% Polyamide. Let me emphasize there is not a another show shirt that matches this shirt when it comes to stretch.
The shirt can be hand washed with cold water, or can also be dry cleaned. The label advises against the use of bleach, or starch. Warm iron is recommended.
We think this shirt will be very popular quickly. Given its flexibility, light weight and super thin fabric, this shirt may become the show shirt of choice. What more can you ask for in a show shirt?
We would love to hear from you, so leave your comment.
For a while now, the Wellington Collection Extreme Air Shirts or the EIS (Equi In Style) shirts have been in favor with athletes of multiple disciplines.
About the Swing Cool Elements Mock Shirt
For those of you unfamiliar with why these shirts are popular, here is the list:
Built-in 30+ SPF Protection for protection from sun burn
Long Sleeves to help protect the arms and keep you warm on those windy days.
Mesh fabric on the underside of the sleeves, to allow air-flow (While we all like to perspire, we do not want the odor or the stickiness).
Multi-purpose shirt, can be used in Sports like tennis, running, golf, and riding.
Choice of multiple colors to fit your taste and mood.
A mock color for protection and style.
The Wellington Collection EAS Shirt filled in a void in the market by bringing a shirt that had all these features and a very economical price tag. This means you could own several of these shirts without robbing the bank. At $60 a pop, these shirts are a great value.
However, more recently, Wellington Collection had a snafu. They could not supply the shirts in quantities.
Enter Bette & Court (or shall we say “Re-Enter”) Swing Cool Elements Mock Shirt
Bette & Court was the maker of the original Swing Shirt. In its various forms and brands, the Swing Cool Elements Mock Shirt got renamed as Wellington Collection Extreme Air Shirt and EIS Performance Stand Up Collar Cool Shirt. Bette & Court is credited with being the innovator of these shirts.
Rightfully so, Bette & Court has stepped up once again, this time with a dazzling array of color choices for their Swing Cool Elements Mock Shirt. The shirt is a step above its competition. It is lighter, softer fabric still with the same popular mock design. Best of all, the shirt colors are to die for. They have covered the spectrum with the colors available with the Swing Cool Elements Mock Shirt. With so many colors available, you can wear a different color each day of the week!
