Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I bought these at the Horsestudio for 165 USD.
Likes: Likes - the jean look and the fit which is a bit trendier but not too low waisted to be attractive. The waist band stays nicely in place. Quality - good, the new material appears to shed dirt and hold its form well for the moment Segmented patches & gusset crotch which makes all Fits breeches stand out for me Side zip - wasn't sure about this at first but it gives a flatter tummy vs front zip (although not as practical Price - cheaper price point vs original Fits
Dislikes: These are cute breeches, make a nice change but compared to the original Fits Material - I prefer the stretchier material in original fits, even if it might not be as durable - this is not as comfy (around the knees). I went up a size due to fabric difference. Style - maybe not as forgiving as original fits. Although not extreme, waist is lower, which could mean muffin top. Ultrasuede patches - I definitely prefer the real deer leather although this does allow a cheaper price point. They are made in India, not the US - Again, I prefer to pay a little more for a product made in the US.
Quality: Seems good for now. Possibly these breeches are a little more durable vs original Fits due to the less stretchy fabric used. I do prefer though the real leather vs ultrasuede.
Summary: I am happy to have one pair of this line especially for the summer. Overall these are a nice breech. This said, for future purchases, I will stick with the original Fits (probably in pull up vs zipper) which I really love. For anyone buying these breeches, check size carefully. If you are on the edge of 2 sizes, go up 1 size for this version as the fabric is not at all as stretchy. I take a medium in regular Fits and for these I went to a large which was right.
Usefulness Rating: 2.8 out of 5.
