Any manufacturers making dove grey breeches these days? I know FITS is, and they're lovely, but I can't afford $100+ schooling breeches :) I started trying to scour the usual sites, but having to click on each to see the colours was getting tedious, so I figured I'd ask here to see if anyone has seen them.

Yes, I am trying to relive my youth - I already have rust ones :)

There were some from Devon Aire on TOTD yesterday, so I know they're out there.

Ariat used to make their Pro Circuit breeches in a light gray color. I know the price of the Pro Circuits is out of your price range, but you might be able to find a pair on Ebay, CL, or Tacktrader. I sold my pair because they were just so hard to keep clean! Even if I was super careful at the barn, they had to get washed before I wore them again. With my dark grey and navy breeches, I can usually get two days out of them, so long as it's not the summer! When I sold them, I think I got $60-70 for them, and they were still in great condition.

I have a pair of Ariat Pro Circuit pale grey breeches, and I hate the color, I don't even think I wore them, or maybe one time. Rust is a much more attractive color IMO, the grey will show all the dirt and rust is prettier anyway.

I scored a pair of brand new, with tags Ariat Pro Circuits in the gray color for $60 earlier this year. Love them!

You must let me buy them from you! I love grey on Spree!

I have two pairs of the Ariat gray breeches. I wear them all the time for schooling, and ride multiple horses. Sure, they get dirty, but I have never had a problem getting the dirt/slime/etc out of them by just throwing them in the laundry and using a normal wash cycle. They are several years old, and look brand new, so two thumbs up from me.

Oh this makes me really happy. I love dove gray breeches and then they went away. Perhaps canary will be coming back as well.

Hehe, yeah, the dirt is annoying, but they'll be schooling breeches...if I ever find some! :) But I'm happy to hear that they HAVE been spotted!

I also have a pair of the dove grey Ariat Pro Circuits. I'm not particularly fond of the color, but it's not hideous. They don't get any dirtier than my khaki/beige breeches and all the dirt washes out every time. Check out Ebay for some good deals since the Pro Circuits are usually really expensive for full retail...

How did I miss this post? Of course, they should fit you just right. I had them in a pile to sell at the swap meet but never made it.

I just ordered the devonaires in gray. And back in the day I wore the light gray with a black coat to local shows and I thought it looked really nice! I plan to wear the new ones in some local jumper shows. :)
