Lotus Romeo is already the choice of many international riders, including Team GB rider, Laura Collett as seen here in her Collett Mesh Tailcoat at Burghley Horse Trials. Laura commented; “The featherlight material keeps me cool in the saddle even in the hottest climates. I love the fit as it offers maximum flexibility, allowing me to compete in comfort with a full range of movement and produce my best possible performance.”


The Collett Mesh Tailcoat is entirely customisable, meaning each rider will have their jacket made-to-measure. There is a whole array of colours and trims to choose from, including special details like Swarovski buttons, tailoring each jacket to the individual’s unique style.
