Lotus Romeo Elegant Burgundy Dressage Shadbelly - Front View

Custom Show Coats  (Fully Personalized and Tailored) by Lotus Romeo

The term “custom show coats” gets thrown around quite loosely. Often times, it means you get a handful of choices for changing the color of the jacket, the collar and buttons etc. While many other brands will offer a “Customization” option, it is usually limited to just a handful of choices that do not affect the styling of the jacket as much as the colors.

A few years ago, we noticed that our customers demanded more flexibility for design options. They did not want to be limited to just 2 styles and 5 colors. They want to mix and match style elements along with different options for buttons, trims, collars and lapels. In other words, customers are increasingly looking to personalize their look. What good is a “custom” jacket if every other rider has the same jacket?

We are thankful to our customers for guiding us in introducing a beautiful line of fully personalized show jackets: Lotus Romeo. This is a brand whose owner’s artistic forte guides her philosophy for the brand “The Art of Unforgettable Style“. Eva Szekely, the owner of Lotus Romeo truly believes in this mantra. The idea is to create a unique jacket for everyone. Personalized Show Clothing should not be un-affordable either.

In late 2016, we introduced Lotus Romeo in a limited launch at the store location. What started as a small bespoke line of show jackets, has now blossomed into a very expansive line of short jackets, hunter shad tailcoat, dressage shads and show shirts.

During the 2 weeks at WEG in #tryon2018, you will have the opportunity to see these jackets up close. You can try them to get a general sense of the overall fit and quality. From all the feedback we have been gathering, Lotus Romeo jackets are being very favorably in terms of styling, quality and comfort compared to offerings from the other bigger brands. In fact, the ironic part is that these “bigger” brands have now started copying the Lotus Romeo model in a desperate effort to catch up.
