Fior Da Liso Shirt

After a long hiatus, we are pleased to announce the arrival of the Fior Da Liso casual shirts collection. This collection was first introduced a few years ago (2014) and it was wildly popular. For whatever reason, the designers for the brand took a break. But now they are back, bigger and bolder than ever.

The shirts from Fior Da Liso have the signature classy look with the stretchy technical fabric that you have come to love. The new collection is smaller but very attractive. In keeping with the tradition, these shirts go equally well with a dressy pants as well as jeans. Many ways to wear the versatile Fior Da Liso shirts. You can even use them as riding shirts.

Can’t have just one

The best part about these shirts is that even after so many years, they look fresh and not boring. In other words, you can never have enough of these shirts. These shirts have quite a loyal following and fanbase. They sell out within just 2 weeks. That’s because you can not just have 1 of these shirts. Once you have worn one, you will inevitably return for adding more to your wardrobe. Such is the appeal of these shirts. The new seasonal shirt collections impart a must-have sentiment. In fact, most customers will get the same shirt in multiple color options.

Collar and Buttons

This new Spring/Summer 2018 collection is keeping it simple for the collar. It is a simple single collar with 2 buttons. No more buttons on the collar.

Fior Da Liso Shirts – A Shirt for every occassion

Fior Da Liso Emma Shirt - Side View
UPDATED March 2017: The Fior Da Liso brand/collections have been discontinued and retired as of January 2017. Please direct all your questions directly to the Fior Da Liso website. We do not have any information or details on specific models or on the brand in general.

Is it possible to fall in love with a shirt? Customers that have purchased any of the Fior Da Liso Shirts have answered in the affirmative to that question. In fact, these shirts are so popular you are likely to see someone wearing it at the show grounds.

These shirts are breathtakingly gorgeous and offer a flattering fit. What started out as a small venture has now expanded to a separate market of itself. That is correct. Between WEF 2014 and AGDF 2014, these shirts were the most popular selling single product.

Fior Da Liso is an Italian flower, hence the flowery patterns of the shirts. The shirts are versatile and present a fresh, unique look. The shirts fit great, the patterns are so unique. It is like wearing a custom shirt. When you walk out wearing a Fior Da Liso Shirt, you exude confidence and style. With so many attractive designs to pick from, it can be hard to just pick one. That is why, women often elect to buy atleast 3 of these shirts. There are about 50-75 different patterns, styles and colors to pick from. The same shirt looks drastically different when the colors are changed. One example of this is the Emma shirt. It comes in a vertical striped pattern on a white base. The cuffs are adorned with beautifully contrasting flowery pattern. The Emma shirt comes in either the Diva Blue Stripe or the Brown Stripe.

The Andrea II shirt has been a major hit this season. It comes in the Chilli Stripes or Vintage Denim Stripes. This shirt features a 2-button collar. The cuff also has two layers of fabric, a very helpful feature, since this keeps the cuff in place. The shirts are supposed to be worn mostly with the cuff up.

Tuesday

The Kyra II boasts a gorgeous pattern in pink checks. The cuff sports another beautiful floral. This is a perfect Spring shirt. For those of you that are check lovers, this is an absolute must-have.

WEF 2014 Recap

TACKNRIDER Trailer at WEF

Week 1 through Week 12 of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) 2014 passed by in a blitz. That is how busy we were at our three locations (WEF Showgrounds, the Stadium at PBIEC and the TACKNRIDER store). Before the season started, we had a somewhat expectation of how busy we would be. Oh Boy…we were wrong! We were caught off guard with the amount of traffic and business we received.

This season, by far, has turned out to be the busiest for TACKNRIDER. For that, we are thankful to our customers. We thank you for supporting our business. We will continue to bring you delighting products and services. We have enjoyed a lot of ‘firsts’ this season, notable among them:

  1. New Website, www.tacknrider.com launched with a compelling interface and easy to shop.
  2. New State-of-the-Art mobile showroom trailer at WEF Showgrounds.
  3. New offering of custom Tucci Dressage Boots.  We are pleased to partner with a reputable name as Tucci for custom dressage boots.
  4. New Print Catalog

What began as a series of unknowns, has now ended with a bang. Let me correct that…it has not quite ended. The momentum continues as our customers return back to their home bases. They continue to place phone orders and online orders. We have seen a dramatic increase in store traffic as well.

While I would like to write in more detail about all the 12 weeks of this season, that will have to wait. Let me re-cap by bringing you some highlights from the WEF season, both in terms of products and the experiences of our customers.

1. Freejump 

It has been a hit season for Freejump. For the first time, Freejump received full exposure at WEF directly from us. The Freejump Soft Up Pro Stirrups were so popular we ran out of them 3 times. We had pre-orders for customers clamoring to get them.

Freejump Soft Up Pro Stirrups are not only important for safety, but comfort and performance as well. We had first time Freejump customers returning to buy more pairs of stirrups.

Along with the stirrups, the Free Jump Liberty XC Boots and Free Jump Liberty Boots sold exceptionally well. Riders of all levels took well to adopting Free Jump in favor of traditional tall boots. Obviously, the Freejump Liberty Boots do not drop or bunch up like tall boots. They retain their fit and are the most comfortable pair of boots and chaps. Our customers repeatedly told us their experience with the Free Jump Liberty Boots was unlike any other. They felt like riding in a “second skin”.

Here are some pictures of our happy first time Free Jump Boot customers. Almost all of these riders were so pleased with the comfort and look of these boots, they wore them right away for riding.

Many customers opted for the Free Jump Liberty Boots and the Freejump Liberty XC Chaps. This gives them the best of both worlds. They can use the Liberty XC Chaps for everyday and wear the Liberty Air Chaps for show use.

2. Fior Da Liso

One of the biggest and most surprising hits of this season were the Fior Da Liso shirts. Our customers will tell you they absolutely love the designs and colors of these shirts. They have a flattering fit, perfect for riding and also for going out at night. Such is the appeal of these shirts, that we never sold just 1 shirt. Customers wanted as many different styles as possible. Particularly, the Emma, Raphaela, Sara and Arianna were immensely popular. These shirts offer a classy look with so many patterns. The large selection of colors and patterns allows individuality to shine. Check out our Facebook page to see some of our happy customers wearing these beautiful shirts.

3. KEP Italia

We introduced KEP Helmets at WEF2014. We have had a great response. These helmets are Made In Italy. They are considered the safest helmets in the riding industry. The KEP Italia helmets have the prestigious PAS015 certification, the only riding helmet to receive this. To me the best part of the helmet is the ultra light weight. It is almost like wearing a hat. You will not feel like you have a helmet on. Just like Samshield Helmets, the liners are removable, washable and replaceable.

Here is a picture of Laura in her KEP Italia helmet

4. For Horses

This smaller Italian name has made a big splash at WEF with their innovative fabrics and styling. The For Horses Collection includes Show Jackets for Ladies and Men, Show Shirts and Show Breeches. Quite a few of our customers were so pleased with the For Horses breeches, they said “it is like wearing nothing at all”. Stay tuned as we will be adding the entire For Horses line up to the website soon.

5. Kastel Denmark Riding Shirts

The Kastel shirts combine light weight fabric, exciting colors and great fit to produce the best-selling riding shirts. This is another new brand that has just made its debut at WEF.

The Kastel shirts are popular because of their lighter and more breathable fabric.  The fabric has built-in protection for UV rays. The wrist sleeve is elastic for an optimum fit. The under-arms are made from mesh material which contrasts with the main color of the shirt. The same color is used on the zipper of the shirt as well. With so many beautiful color selections to choose from, this shirt was clearly the most popular riding shirt at WEF 2014.
