Manufacturer: Tailored Sportsman
Model: Royal Hunter Breeches
Category: English Show Apparel
Purchase: I actually bought these breeches on consignment at the HITS Indio horse show in 2006 for $100. These breeches regularly retail for around $190 at most tack stores.
Likes: These are very comfortable breeches that look amazing with any show shirt or jacket. They are definitely a must-have for the A-circuit. I have the low rise version, and they really aren't that low rise, which pleases my absolutely-no-low-rise-pants-EVER trainer! They seem to last forever, and they still look brand new even though I bought them used!
Dislikes: Mine are the 2-way stretch, so they aren't super stretchy, or at least aren't as stretchy as an all cotton or 4-way breech would be. Aside from some bunching at the knee when I squat to pick a hoof or fix a boot, they don't bother me. However, if you like really stretchy breeches, get a bigger size or get the 4-way stretch version.
Quality: The TS breeches are all immaculately made and will probably last for decades if cared for! They have super tight, neat stitching and really nice goat-skin knee patches. They are a bit tricky to clean because they are dry clean only, but I've heard that using woolite or leather therapy is ok, too. Overall, these are very well made breeches.
Summary: Overall, if you are planning to do A circuit shows, these are the breeches for you! They are steeped in tradition, and no other breech really matches up to the look and the quality. They are expensive, but what you get and how you look is well worth the price.
