I don't know exactly where you can buy cream breeches other than having them tailor-made, but I have heard of people dying their white stock ties/saddle pads/breeches/gloves cream in a bath of hot water with some black tea bags thrown in. The tea will dye all of the articles a uniform color that will not wash out if left to steep for long enough. An added bonus of this is that you can control what color your garments are so you get exactly what you want! :yes:

If you can't find what you are looking for in store and do decide to use this method in order to obtain cream breeches, then I will suggest that you test it out with a white tee shirt or rag before you dunk your pikeurs!

Pikeur makes them. www.amirashop.co.uk
Costs about half of what breeches here cost. They carry the Lugana microfiber in cream--probably many others.
The tea bag thing ends up looking exactly like you tried to dye your breeches with tea bags!

Well, if you are a tea enthusiast (as I am) you might like the look! :lol:

FITS makes a nice cream breech. A bit costly, but I LOVE their breeches...

Anky does a cream knee patch & full seat - the ones I've seen are in a techno fabric (breathable summer weight, stain resistant, wipe clean etc)

FITS no longer makes the cream breech, but you may be able to find a pair on EBay. The color is champagne, and they are lovely. If anyone knows where to find a FITS white breech from last year, (NOT the nasty energy rib crap they make now) please let me know.

Yup - I have a few pairs of the full seat Luganas in cream - it's a great colour and works across lots of disciplines. :)

FITS calls them champagne. I have two pair of these I only use for rec. shows - absolutely beautiful and have held up wonderfully. The fabric really seems to resist stains - the leather too. Highly recommend them. I get my FITS when VTO has one of their 20% off sales!

I have a pair of Equiwear cream LEATHER full seat breeches that I need to sell. Size is 30R and they do measure true to size. I got them hoping they'd fit me, but I need longs. I'd take $65 + shipping. These are brand new.

These from Tropical rider are cotton lycra pull-ons, which are not everyone's first choice, but they are definitely cream: http://www.tropicalrider.com/product_detail.asp?p=84 I am a great fan of TR breeches!

(If the mare -- palomino -- is sound enough to show, I mean really SHOW, next year, I am getting cream breeches. I rode her in a schooling show using her new champagne pad, and it was so much nicer on her than white...)
