Purchase: These breeches were purchase through Dover Saddlery for $49.90. I bought them because I used to like riding in full seat breeches. I wanted to try out the full seat again.
Likes: I liked the price. I don't think you could find a better pair of full seat breeches for the money. They come in a lot of colors; I picked fawn. I liked the thickness of the breech, and that it's mainly cotton 95%. The other 5% is lycra which gives them a little bit of stretch. The full seat was sewn in beautifully. It's a faux leather suede seat, so it can be machine washed which is great. It does help you stick in the saddle!
Dislikes: These just never fit right. I bought a 30inch waist and it gapped in the back. They were supposed to be a normal rise and yet they pulled down from my waist and rubbed my hip bones and left welts. They aren't tight, they just seemed to be cut funny. I feel like I should have ordered a long or tall version as well, because these come up over my ankles. I am short and usually have to buy petite or short length...these I wish I had more length. The full seat is restrictive. I didn't like how it feels like there is zero give in the seat. It feels "tight". I also wish the full seat was lined on the inside, it's the faux leather on your skin. I guess for the price though that's asking a lot.
Quality: The construction is very well. The breeches are sewn so nicely. They did such a great stitch pattern on the full seat. I really think you could show in these if you bought the appropriate color(s). I only wore them once, so I don't know how durable they would be, but they sure look like they were manufactured to last. The full synthetic seat is a thick material and the breech material is not thin either.
Summary: These look like really good breeches. Unfortunately, they didn't fit me correctly. I don't think I'll buy another pair, even in a different size or length. It's probably best to try breeches on before you buy them off the internet. I have another pair of full seats by a different makers and they are way more comfortable. I wouldn't say to not buy these though. I think they look great, and are constructed so nicely! They just weren't the pair for me.
