View Full Version : The Right Breeches

Mar. 1, 2012, 10:33 AM
I have a favorite pair of breeches. Only problem - there's no name brand on them! I bought them at a tent sale and I think they were a mock-up for a company's new line.

They are:

1) Front pockets (no zipper)
2) euro seat - seat is same material as the rest of the breech
3) no knee patches
4) mine are blue, so I imagine they come in other colors
5) velcro ankle
6) the inside of the waist band if black and two red stripes
7) I think they may be a low-rise. They are not high waisted, but it's hard for me to tell as I have no waist.

Anyone have any idea who could have possibly made these? Or, what brand may offer something similar? I adore them!

Thank you!

Perhaps it would help to actually *see* a picture or two of the breeches?

My Rider Sport breeches have a red and black striped waistband and they come in so many styles. Did you get them at Dover?

Grand Prix also has a black and red waistband, although they aren't striped, they actually say "Grand Prix."

Do they have a snap or hook closure at the zipper?

My Riding Sport breeches also have a black/red striped waistband and no brand name or identifying marks.

Sounds like the Riding Sport Competitor breeches from
Dover. Are they like a woven twill or cotton knit?

By no zipper, do you mean on the front pockets, or are they pull on breeches?

Thank you all. Yes, I bought them at Dover. They are a cotton knit.
They have a zipper in the front - no zippers on the pockets. It is a hook closure.

On the back belt loop (above your bum) it is an "X" if that makes sense.

I don't think they are the Riding Sport Competitor as these do not have knee patches.
