What is the difference (besides $8.00 and some extra color options) between the TS Trophy Hunter Low Rise Side Zip Breech (Dover Item # X1-35596), and the TS low rise breech (Dover Item # X1-35323)?

Their descriptions sound nearly the same. Are the Trophy Hunters looser fitting ie “relaxed fit”? That is the only difference I see in the description:

TS Trophy Hunter:

Low rise style, side zipper, Clarino™ knee patches, front pockets, belt loops and Velcro® brand ankle closures. Machine wash. USA. In tan, French blue, espresso, or olive.

Don't the Trophy's have the euro seat instead of regular knee patches?

The TS breech is the "traditional" tailored sportsman cut/style of the Royal and Supreme hunter in a cotton blend fabric.

The Trophy Hunter has a wider waistband, euro seat, and is cut a bit looser. They are also much lower rise than the TS (in my experience at least).

instigator is correct, trophy's are euro seat.

As an aside, TS has replaced the TS fabric with a new, much nicer version. It doesn't fade and get gross like the old TS. That is why so many breeches have been on closeout so tack shops can make room for the new ones. I bought a pair a few weeks ago, and can't tell a difference b/w them and my 225 dollar TS pros with microfiber.

In the Dover catalog - the description of the trophy's do not say euro seat - it says "clarino knee patches" and the exact same material as the regular TS and no mention of a different waist band. Can anyone confirm these differences not mentioned in the product descriptions?

You can see the "rear view" in the pro Trophy hunter descriptions, but they aren't shown on the TS Trophy hunter photos. Also, if the seams on the side go straight down the leg, rather than curving to the middle of the kneecap, you know they are euro seat. It's just a fact that the Trophy breeches are euro seat.

Better pics and descriptions at Smartpak, and as Nickelodian said the new fabric (which is more of a blend) is much nicer and holds up much better than the 95/5 fabric from before.
