    A special emphasis is put on choosing the fabrics, creating the perfect balance between comfort and elegance.

    “I feel honoured to have been chosen to represent Le Sabotier Chemiserie and really look forward to riding with their clothes. I was immediately blown away by the quality of the clothes. My deepest gratitude goes to all at Le Sabotier for their trust and support,” he said.
