For those new to the clothing business who would like to learn how to set up and run a new clothing business, we run a clothing startup workshop.
Ergonomics Of Equestrian Clothing.
Over the years The London Pattern Cutter have been involved with a number of equestrian clothing projects. The ergonomics of performance horse riding wear are quite specific. The garments need to be be functional, durable, and stylish. Some riding garments may be for competitive riding, while others may be for every day riding.
Technical Performance Fabrics.
Modern cutting edge technical fabrics have meant a revolution in equestrian clothing in recent years. There are more stretch fabrics and moisture wicking fabrics available. Each style may be made with a variety of fabrics with different properties depending on the specific requirements. Some areas may need to be stretchy, while others may need to be abrasive, or tough.
Comfort and performance are very important factors in riding clothes that have to endure rough treatment in all types of weathers. The cut and shape of the pattern, along with the garment construction are important factors in producing a top quality garment. Seam and panel placements are crucial to comfort and freedom of movement.
Much equestrian wear is very similar to sportswear, requiring a mixture of specialist machinery and sewing skills to be able to produce a professional product with a high quality finish.
One of our previous projects was to produce a range of jockey racing silks for a strtup called Allertons Racing Silks. This was about forty years ago. The garments had no stretch, but had to be made to accommodate the extreme riding position of the jockey, without restricting the rider, or pulling the seams. Each outfit had to be made with the shaping in the seams that each racing colours design allowed. This involved a certain amount of development due to the unusual ergonomics involved. But once the initial base pattern was finalised, the other sizes and styles were comparatively straight forward.
