Purchase: I was looking for a new pair of breeches after doing the research on "all the usual suspects." When I went to Dominion Saddlery in Chantilly, Va., I tried on several different brands of breeches and was discouraged at the way they fit and/or were made, for the price. Just when I was about to give up, I stumbled upon a few pair of FITS breeches and the "Earth" color caught my eye. As I was contemplating trying on these last pair of breeches, one of the girls that works in the store turned to me and said, "those are the greatest breeches, you have to try them on to believe how they fit!" Since I had taken a trip all the way out to the store for this very purpose, I decided to do just that! Once I put them on, I was sold! I decided to buy the more traditional "Black" color and have never looked back! They were having a sale that day and off the $199.99 list price, they may have taken off another 10% or so, I can't recall! But now that I own a pair, I would buy another at full price in a heartbeat.
Likes: In two words - fit and quality. These breeches will make any woman feel good about herself! They hold you in where you need to be held in and they are flattering in all the right places and they have never lost their shape after wearing them day after day after day over many, many months of time. The waist comes up to the perfect height as well - it's not too short-waisted, like many of the low rider pants that are now in fashion, yet, they are not so high-waisted that they make you feel "old fashioned". As Goldilocks might have said, "they fit just right!"
Dislikes: I have to be honest and say that there is nothing I don't like about these breeches. I plan on purchasing a new pair in the coming months, but only because I am tired of wearing black all the time!
Quality: I can't say enough about how these breeches are made. The materials that they use are first class. The leather is perforated and breathes easily in the summer temperatures, yet has kept me comfortably warm this fall season. They use a very strong/thin material at the bottom of each leg, where you put your feet in your boots, so you don't have to struggle to get all of the material tucked in to your boot "just right." The seams are all in the right places and the garment is sewn together to provide a strong/reinforced product, that I believe does not have any weak construction points. You can wash these breeches over and over (taking care of the leather, as you should, of course!) and they still fit like new.
Summary: These are the best breeches I have ever owned and believe that FITS will prove to riders everywhere that they can look good and feel good in breeches, no matter what. The material is comfortable and wears exceptionally well. The cost is reasonable, based on the quality of the product and how much use you will get out of them over the years. They come in great colors. What else is there to say? Maybe just one last thing... try them on. You will love the way they fit and you will love the way you look in them!
