Not ribbed, but I got some GREAT Harry Halls (white fullseats) from Bit of Britain for $20, ask them if they have any that are shopworn! Thats what mine were but they washed up PERFECTLY. They were really awesome to work with as well!

I tried typing in harry halls in google and looked at all there breeches and I only saw one pair of white and they were not full seat. Can you possiby send me the link of where you got them ? Or did you go to the actual store if there is one.

Just an FYI-- you don't need white breeches for the dressage phase of eventing ;) Heck, not even for lower level dressage! (not sure about the FEI levels and I'm too lazy to look at the rule book) Several posters here, including myself, wear non-white, light colored breeches in the dressage phase :)

I have a white ribbed pair that is from irideon that I have a pair of in navy too that I like quite a bit. They're pull on but full seat and have belt loops so still quite nice and they clean up pretty well. There were a few events this summer (queeny park especially) where I was riding 2 horses close together and it was so hot that I wasn't sure I could get them off after dressage and get a different pair on for XC because I was so gross and sweaty so I just wore them for XC as well and even after riding 2 horses in both phases then and another time they still look fine! (Either that or we have some sort of really effective stain fighting washing machine at my house).
I also have the kerrits microcord full seats in tan and I believe also come in white, they are nice too and reasonably priced!
