Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle Review
You can never have too many riding tee’s, so when a good friend asked me what I thought of her new equestrian lifestyle line, I jumped on the chance to do a Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle review. She sent me two tee’s to try: the Hunter Lines tee is a more fitted crew neck style, and the Vanatage Schooling tee is a looser, v-neck. My first impression of the shirts was ‘wow!’ They are very soft to the touch, in gorgeous color combinations, with really fun graphics.
The material is super soft, and slightly stretchy, without being clingy. The weight of the fabric is really nice as well — not so thin that it feels flimsy, but not too thick for hot summer days. I was so excited that the day the shirts arrived, I immediate put on the Vanatage Schooling tee band wore it around the house all day! I had to wash it before it ever even made it out to the barn. That shirt has quickly become one of my favorite shirts I own and I wear it constantly!
The fit of both is just what I’d hoped: the Hunter Lines tee is more fitted, where the Vantage Schooling tee is looser. Both come in a wide range of sizes, so equestrians of all shapes can easily get whatever size they need. This is one of my favorite features of Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle! So many of the popular equestrian graphic tee brands don’t have larger sizes, and when their apparel already runs small, I’m just straight up out of luck. This is absolutely not the case with Vantage — t-shirts go up to 2XL! Depending on what type of fit you like, I’d consider sizing up in any of the crew neck shirts at Vantage — they do run a bit small, so if you don’t like tight fitting shirts, one size up will help you tremendously. I asked the owner, Mallory, a ton of fit questions and she helped me pick my sizes. She was really nice, super helpful and knowledgeable and responded within minutes.
Ever since I got my Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle shirts, they’ve been in regular rotation. In fact, I’ve washed them more than any other shirt for the last few weeks and they’ve held up great. I throw them in with all my other darks, on a regular cycle and I’ve not had a single issue with shrinking or peeling/fading graphics. I do line dry all of my shirts, so I can’t speak to how they go through the dryer.
Purchase — you won’t regret it! The prices are really reasonable ($23), and Vantage has loads of cute designs in tons of color and size options. While there are a lot of small equestrian graphic apparel businesses out there, no one can beat the variety that Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle offers. The colors are a lot of fun, the designs are chic and the material is superb. They’re great for running errands, perfect for lessons and great for schooling at horse shows. I’ve never gotten so many comments, but everyone that saw my Hunter Lines tee commented on how cute it was!
