View Full Version : Size 18 TS Breeches?
Feb. 25, 2012, 12:01 AM
I just went to a local tack swap/sale and picked up 2 brand new pairs of TS breeches for (wait for it... don't pass out like I almost did) $5 a piece!!! However, the are a size 18. I don't think they are girls sizing as they fit me a bit tight, but fit and I am no where near girls sizing. For a reference, I comfortably wear a 30L in devon aire or a 30L in Ariats. Any idea where this sizing came from? I can't believe they are a 26" waist like it says on the girls size chart and still kinda fit me....

Who cares what size they really are for that price? If they fit, they fit!

That's probably why they were on sale... some weird size misprint. I am very jealous! I love new breeches, especially nice ones on sale!

I used to buy size 18 TS (full price!). They're girls sizes.. They fit me like 26s in the waist, they were just shorter in the leg. Which didn't really matter in tall boots. Congrats on an awesome deal!! :) They may be a different style that what you usually wear, I know some cuts I wear 26s and others 28s.

Yup, they are girls size. I wear either the 18's or womens 26's. The biggest difference is the length. I am really short so I prefer the kids size.

Wow, have to keep that in mind! I'm a 26 in TS too - though that's some weird Ariat sizing for you. Ariat normally sizes their breeches WAY big - I'm always a good size or 2 smaller in Ariat than other brands. Right now I'm a 24 in Ariat - but I'm also pretty short.
Since children's stuff is always cheaper, it's worth it if you can still fit in them! Got a great deal on a show shirt and realized it was so much cheaper because it was a Girl's size.

Wow. That is super surprising that they are kid's sizes! I am mno where near kids sizing (5'7" and 140lbs.... so not a small person) They are short/don't velcro around my calf but I didn't really care because they would be under my boot anyway. I guess my other breeches are just really big on me and I never knew it. Huh. Well, for $5 per pair, I will take it!
