“There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.” And, equestrian and country clothing has to be comfortable, durable and ready to take whatever you, your horse and the British weather have to throw at it – and to do it all in style. Is that asking too much? Definitely not, says Welligogs.
This distinctly British brand’s collections perform as well as you do, with styling that’s flattering, feminine and ready to take you anywhere – from stableyard to city.
Now you can be sure of being in the right clothing whatever the weather thanks to Welligog’s fantastic new giveaway competition to win a Louise red and black waxed jacket worth £199! Just head over to their Facebook page to enter!
Welligogs use a number of different British based brands of wax in their clothing ranges, from the traditional dyed petroleum based wax finish on combed cotton, dyed dry wax finish on soft handle combed cotton, to the highest quality combed cotton with a lustrous sheen for very high water repellency.
They have also embraced current and new trends using quality waxed cotton that has a vintage appearance similar in look to worn leather.
Looking to the future and with a desire to help the environment, they will be looking to introduce an EcoWax , an Eco friendly alternative to traditional wax.
If you are looking for completely waterproof, wind proof, breathable and washable then look no further than the Odette and Eleanor coats with the waterproof outer fabric as well as a technical waterproof and breathable membrane with sealed seams that lies behind the lining, a proven must have for whatever the weather throws at it!
More and more riders at the top of their game are turning to Welligogs to kit them out for some of the calendar’s most high profile events.
In May, British rider Sarah Parkes competed in her first ever four-star event at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials and, with all eyes on her at the trot-up, skinny white trousers paired with a Commodore navy blazer with gold piping by Welligogs made the perfect combination. So perfect, in fact, Sarah was named Badminton Best Dressed Lady by online society guide Sloaney Season.
And, in Ireland for the FEI European Eventing Championships 2017 in July, the Junior British Eventing Team were the next in line to choose Welligogs for their “catwalk” moment at the trot-ups. Alice Goring, this year’s winner of the Horse and Hound amateur rider of the year, and Alice Fox-Pitt are among Welligogs’ growing equestrian fanbase, while Clare Balding, the face of racing coverage on British TV, has been seen on screen in Welligogs as she presented Badminton, Crufts and other major sporting events. Olympic gold medallist turned amateur jockey Victoria Pendleton is another Welligogs devotee, spotted wearing Welligogs for a TV interview and while “off duty” for a day at the races in Cheltenham. Claire Abbot won best dressed at The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in Welligog’s aptly named and very popular Burghley jacket!
So from trot-up to TV studio, Welligogs has made each of these women look and feel great whatever the occasion. At Welligogs we endeavour to create outfits that will flatter women, whatever their shape, with boots, hats and accessories to match.
The brand has evolved from founder Kim Annan’s original handpainted Wellington boots – or “welligogs” as they were known in her family home – to encompass quality leather boots in a range of styles, beautifully cut jackets and shirts, hardwearing coats and gilets and eye-catching hats and accessories.
Inspired by the colours of the British countryside, each season sees the release of new and exciting designs with the firm’s core values at their heart – attention to detail, British craftsmanship wherever possible, function and style. Each British-made piece is hand-cut and sewn, with tweeds and wools handpicked from British manufacturers from the Scottish mountains to the Yorkshire Dales.
Cutting-edge fashion mixes seamlessly with tradition at Welligogs – the waxing and waterproofing processes are based on the tried-and-tested techniques of generations gone before, and applied to garments designed for today’s world – when a walk in the country could easily be followed by dinner in the city.
Country life has informed every aspect of Welligogs’ iconic leather boots, with their ruggedness, comfort, warmth and style ensuring pride of place in the boot cupboard or hallway of many a home. Sloane and Ranger, Welligogs’ classic country boots, have been joined by Matador, the Spanish riding boot, the elegant Mayfair and the relaxed Mondo – proving Welligogs is the right fit for every walk of life.
