Christmas shopping at Zack's Tack
Written by Peter Ibrahim Abisheganaden Sunday, 16 November 2008 18:00Wondering what to give your horse-riding friends for Christmas? Where do you buy horsey things anyway? Look no further than Zack’s Tack, a one-of-a-kind polo shop at the Royal Selangor Polo Club, off Jalan Ampang Hilir, in downtown Kuala Lumpur.
If you are not sure what length of polo mallet your polo pal might use, or what size of riding helmet your friend uses, you may want to check out the polo and equine fashion wear. Polo fashions have become part of the horse culture so that even showjumping and dressage riders wear the stylish polo team shirts. In fact, almost everyone wears polo inspired clothes without even realizing it. Anything with an RL type number on the shirt or sleeve is already borrowing from polo culture.
So why not get something authentic? Zack’s Tack has a whole range of polo shirts, ladies shirts and blouses, and kid’s replica shirts and polo tees in real nice cotton materials from Argentina.
King’s Game is one of polo’s hottest brands in polo apparel. Zack’s Tack has snaffled ten different King’s Game replica polo shirts. These are team shirts are from famous polo countries like Argentina, Chile (pictured above) Italy, Spain, Holland, Scotland and Wales. There are also team shirts like Maui Polo and Villa Sesta.
In addition to replica shirts King’s Game also has men’s sports jackets, ladies blouses, ladies tees and kid’s replica polo shirts and tees.
The riveted No 3 Ladies Polo Tee (pictured left) is already a big hit, as is the No 3 Ladies Blouse.
There is a fun range of Kid’s polo shirts and tees.
All King’s Game Polo and Tees are made with a very high quality cotton and are exquisitely finished. Polo and Tees at Zack’s Tack range from RM60.00 to RM300.00.
The King’s Game leather trimmed player’s bag priced at RM400.00 (pictured below) is a really good looking sports bag.
There is also a selection of beautiful mallet bags in different sizes for the modern polo player who travels with his mallets.
Ucha, another Argentine brand, has England, Brasil and USA team shirts available at Zack’s Tack. Ucha also has a Queen’s Polo range for ladies, and a lower priced range of polo inspired shirts for kids. They also have long sleeved cotton polos and replica shirts.
Argentina is famous for its silver and its polo. It is nice to see a lovely range of polo and equine inspired jewellery. Zack’s Tack has a wide range of Argentine silverware. Bracelets, rings, pins, cufflinks, key rings, brooches, and all made with a horsey or polo signature.
Argentine leather belts (pictured above with KG Sports Bag) are made with Argentine cowhide and covered with distinctive colourful stitching and typically Argentinean patterns make great presents. They come in men’s, ladies and even children’s sizes.
Are you after some riding pants? King’s Game has the classic white jeans that polo players wear. If you are after something more distinctive, go for the Argentinean bombachas, the pleated riding pants of the gauchos, made with a beautiful cotton drill material with a choice of four colours.
If you do decide on that polo mallet for your polo friend, Zack’s Tack has Zappala mallets, one of the most sought after brands of polo mallets in the world. They also stock Fibercane mallets, the latest in carbon fiber polo mallets. Or if you know her helmet size, you might like to get her a python skin LAS helmet to go with her latest handbag. Have you been searching everywhere for a pink saddle?
