Category: English Show Apparel
Purchase: From Dover saddlery. On sale for $79, but it is normally about $100
Likes: It has a wonderful fit! They seem to work really well on many body shapes. They have held up very well for all of the stress I have put on them. I have a tiny waist, but regular hips, but the "V3" system makes the waist really fit. I've never worn breeches other than these that I don't need a belt to keep up! The fabric and color really looks great in the show ring, they really stand out. They really look a lot nicer that most breeches at this price do. I got them just for showing, but I have a hard time not wearing them for schooling, I really love them!
Dislikes: They don't wash well. They are normally rather stiff and tight once they dry, but by the end of the show day are a little saggy in the butt and baggy around the top of my boots. I find the waist to be higher than most regular rise breeches are. Unless you like a very high waist you should get the low rise, I wish I did.
Quality: Very nice. They have started to get those little "fuzzies" in the "seat" area after one season of showing, but I think this is from my excessive washing. The stitching has stayed in tacked well and the zipper and snap are still very solidly attached.
Summary: A very good breech for it's price and fits like it was custom made.
