8 months ago Togs for Today0

Controlling massive moving machines at 40 mph, jockeys are ironically little people, standing typically around 4 to 5 feet. However, their racetrack fashion always has been larger than life. A farm girl fan of their riding wardrobe, here’s why I can’t get enough of these classic threads:

  • The jockey silks (uniform top) come in funky colors and patterns so riders really stand out from the competition;
  • The riding pants are lightweight and made of comfortable, movable material; and
  • The riding boots sustain in shine, even after multiple rides.
