My review of the Santos Competition Shirt:
.
I wanted to do a review with DVR because after browsing their website I loved all their items and wanted to help them out anyway I could. I decided (after a lot of deliberation) to choose the Santos Competition shirt in charcoal because, how could you not love it. This shirt also comes in a stunning beige but i thought the dark grey would look amazing with my horse Tom... they also do a wide range of all sorts of products from bags to ear bonnets and do an amazing range of bright hi-viz (STYLE VIS Collection) which will be amazing at keeping us safe going into winter with less light or just because it is stunning to look at... i also love how their products have a purpose, but do it with so much style. They have such a lovely team and the hand written note from Danielle that comes in your parcel is just the cherry on top...

Now onto the show shirt...
.
I just absolutely love it. Im pretty sure I will never take it off from now on...
First of all the moment I opened the package it was beautifully wrapped and the delivery time was excellent. The fabric of the shirt is soo comfy and the charcoal coloured part is all mesh which will be perfect for them really hot show days. However, even though it is mesh its not see through which again is perfect because i'm sure we've all had a show shirt that definitely doesn't tick this box.

Looking at the detail, you can see just how much time and effort goes into every one of these products. The zip is even perfect and matches the dark colour of the shirt which is another example of amazing attention to detail, the subtle logo on the neck piece also adds the individuality and i just love the logo. Also the fabric on the neck piece is so unbelievably soft as well as thick but not heavy. As well as this, the whole shirt is stretchy and has a very flattering fit.
.
When riding it has to be one of the most comfy tops I've ever rode in, its stretchy but not baggy and moves with your movement making it feel as though it isn't there.
.
.
Overall however, I think that my favourite part of this unique show shirt is how it is made (almost fully) from recycled products, and even if you hadn't realised that when you'd buy it, it says on the collar how much of what it has in it. So for example this shirt is made from 80% recycled fishing nets. I think this is just so so wonderful especially in todays world with so much waste, that this incredible company is fighting towards the right thing.

I honestly would and could talk for hours about this product and want to help this brand as best I can. So to sum up, I absolutely love this product would recommend it to everyone and i'm never getting out of it.
