Fit of Tailored Sportsman Breeches
I was wondering how TS breeches fit compared to other breeches. I've never actually had a pair, but was looking at getting some. I was looking at either the Trophy hunters or the TS breeches. The breeches I'm wearing now are the On Course Premier breeches and I also have a pair of Tuffriders. Does anyone know how they fit compared to those? I've also had ariats in the past.
One thing you could try...
Pretty much all TS breeches don't fit me. I have the same problem that someone else mentioned... I have a small butt, narrow hips and skinny legs but my waist isn't that small. I wear a 28ish in most breeches and my waist fits in a 30 in TSs but they're HUGE everywhere else.
BUT my trainer suggested trying the kids breeches since they're cut narrower everywhere except the waste. Well, I tried on a used pair of 18 girls' TS and they fit really good with even a little room to spare in the waste!! I think I got them for $35 and they're one of my favorite pair to school in.
The Ariats fit me much better and my show pants are the RJ classics WEF low rise breeches... they're AWESOME and even better they're only $100.
Just try different ones on and check in consigment areas... you'll be surprised what you find!!
I have both TS and OC Premier
I just recently ordered a pair of the OC Premier online and wear TS style 1965 for showing (I only do little shows, so I don't see any reason these aren't fine for showing, IMO). A 36R TS style 1965 fits like it was custom made for me--I'm curvy and short. I wear 32s in OC pull ons to school in (which fit me like a dream), so I ordered 34R in the Premier side zips b/c I usually go up a size in side zips. However, they are skin tight and fit much more like a long. I'm 5'3" and the TS length is perfect for me, but I'd have to be ~3-4 inches taller before I would be happy with the length of the Premiers. The overall cut is fairly similar, although I find the leg to be much slimmer in the Premier than the TS and the hip area to be only a smidgeon slimmer in the 34 Premier than the 36 TS. The waist seems about the same. Hope that helps.
FWIW, if anyone is looking for a pair of Premiers, PM me. Tags still attached, but was a final sale, so I'm considering rehoming them rather than letting them collect dust.
