Phyllis Stein

Equestrians have all these sayings and terms that non-equestrians don’t know or understand. The term ‘long spot’ is the one that confuses my non-horsey friends the most, especially when I say it’s what caused a fall. I found the perfect shirt to describe this habit of mine, made by Phyllis Stein, a Canadian company that produces shirts printed with equestrian sayings and images on them.

Seeing the long spot…

I have three of Phyllis Stein’s shirts – the Long Spot shown above, and Breeches and Boots shown below, as well as Stayed On! Won Prizes! (not shown), which I just got this weekend – thanks Meredith! Both are of a very soft cotton that is lightweight, but not see through, that withstands washing well. I have the older style of Breeches and Boots, and it is a bit shorter in the body and a crew neck – perfect for pairing with mid-rise breeches, whereas Long Spot is long enough for me to comfortably wear over leggings on a lazy day. Both shirts featured are paired with Equine Couture Baker Breeches, and an Old Navy belt (older style, similar style available now).

I’ve gotten lots of compliments on both shirts from riders and non-riders alike. If you’d like to order these shirts they’re available through the Phyllis Stein site, or through Shop Dapple Gray.
