Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: Bought some mail order from a tack store for under $100. Got some off eBay for around $60.
Likes: These have become my vary favorite breeches. I have a very short waist and most regular waist breeches are too high and the waist too small for me. If the waist fits, the seat is baggy. These fit my body type very well. I also like that they are not like tights; the fabric is woven so they don't cling so you don't get the poured-in feeling. They are much more flattering. Like the pockets. I wore them to the feed store one day and someone commented that they loved the way they looked, that she could only find the knitted, very clingy style breeches.
Quality: I have leather seats as well as the synthetic. The leather seats are OK but it's not deerskin so it's not as supple and feels very cumbersome. Really like the synthetics. The fabric looks like it will hold up well.
Summary: Like them better than my Gersemi, Pikeur, Romfh, Schumacher, Kerrits and Kentucky breeches. If you have a long waist, probably not for you. If you have a short waist, try them.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
