We are bringing our collection to the renowned end of summer event in Bridgehampton, NY, The Hampton Classic, opening one week from today.
“As one of the largest outdoor horse shows in the United States, and a premier destination for horse people, the Classic is a much-anticipated stop on the summer tour. Now well into its third successful decade, The Hampton Classic Horse Show is in a class all its own, both in the minds of spectators and horse people alike.”
It’s a beautiful event to watch magnificent riders and horses compete, stroll the beautiful, grounds, shop the Boutique Garden, and just people watching……..we will be in our usual spot by the red umbrella. See you there!
August 26-September 2
Napa and suede Merino Shearling Jacket with one of a kind stitching and lambskin trim
Located on the SE corner of The Bridgehampton Commons on Montauk Highway & Snake Hollow Rd., they are a hop skip and jump from the show grounds, and where riders of all ages are popping in to get their gear all summer long.
Stop in to see our quality of materials and construction to start your thoughts of a special jacket for winter, and then stop by our booth in the Boutique Garden at The Classic
to see more styles.
Brennan’s will also be doing appointments during The Classic if you want a private try on of your dream jacket.
We welcome you to visit us on this final day of the Hampton Classic. Great day for people watching, horse viewing, strolling The Boutiques Garden, and purchasing that special shearling……..it’s a chilly day, a taste of what’s coming for fall!
Fall is in the air, Labor Day is around the corner, and the shoppers are getting ready for the change of seasons. Isabelle stopped by our booth, and again this year found a shearling that was a perfect fit! Boutique Garden at The Hampton Classic, 240 Snake Hollow Rd. , Bridgehampton , NY
Today & tomorrow, Grand Prix Sunday, 9-5
We are home, mentally full, & physically exhausted from an eight day show in Bridgehampton.
Sales, weather (all kinds), meeting many new people, fishing & beach time, viewing glamour, Hamptons shopping, eating great food………
One of the highlights of the week was being invited to a party at Snake Hollow Studio, and getting to meet the artist Lynn Matsuoka, and birdhouse/furniture designer Keith Barker, whose warm hospitality and group of friends will be fondly remembered.
Lynn visited our booth at The Classic with her son Ryunosuke Matsuoka (Sen restaurant in Sag Harbor)
who brilliantly positioned herself behind our Magenta Jacket!
This is one of our new designs this fall, a fitted at the waist ebony merino shearling, trimmed in a bronze and black lambskin edging. It has a wide asymetrical collar that hugs the neck to keep out the chill, but can also be worn open to drape over the collarbone.
I just shipped this coat out to the woman who purchased it at the Hampton Classic, and she looked absolutely gorgeous in it, so the piece is now complete. So exciting when the right person gets the right coat!
Ever since I moved to New York in my early 20’s, I would wander around lower Manhattan before it was “Soho”, I would pass by a shop with an oval sign hanging above a small shop on a tiny little street. It had an image of a riding boot, and said Vogel Handmade Boots. Intriguing, and not at all what I expected to find there, although that area used to be primarily manufacturing, and where we would shop for buttons and zippers and trims.
Now that we are showing our shearling coats at The Hampton Classic in Bridgehampton, NY, I had the chance to meet Hank Vogel, the 3rd generation boot maker (his son is the 4th) in a company that began in 1879! A very nice man with a million dollar smile, carrying on the tradition.
