    Default in a rust dillema: TS Rust vs TS Port?!?!

    HELP!! ASAP!!

    Okay, so I ordered some TS supreme hunters in rust, because i didnt want that orangey rust they make the schoolies in. I know they make the supremes in a more true, redder rust. I am extremely upset to find that theyre on backorder for atleast 6-8 weeks. well, i don't have six to eight weeks.

    so after scouring every corner of the internet as well as all the local tack stores, i have come to no luck. the only place that had them online was farmhousetack, which is where i ordered from. even though it said they were in stock on the store page, theyre backordered i'm fairly upset. i was so excited to get to wear them to a show i have coming up, as well as many more shows coming up this spring and summer, and i bought a new coat and shirt to go and everything. i am REALLY not willing to wait 8 weeks--itll be the middle of summer by then!

    that being said, while i was desperately going through the internet, i found one site that had TS in port. i thought i remembered them being a plummy purpley color, but maybe it was a different color, the last time i thought i saw them in person. But, on this picture, they look pretty nice. They almost pass off as a really dark rust, is the first thing that came to mind. I REALLY do not want to buy the rust schoolies, but i am going to do that this weekend if i can not find anything else. but i am posting here because i am wondering, could i pull off wearing the ports? in this picture, they look like a dark rust, and ive definitely seen darker rusts before. however, it could be my screen or something, because i notice that some times pictures look different on here than they do on other computers.

    i wouldn't be buying them on there, i'd buy them in a local tack shop that i know has them; if i were to buy them.

    what do you think? who has these? could they be considered a rust? it's a stretch, but if you can't tell, i'm absolutely desperate

    that being said, if anyone has a pair of 26R TS supreme hunters in rust laying around, i'd be glad to take them off your hands for you

    sigh. i'm going to hae to spend a good hour digging through the consignment room of horsemen's outlet this weekend in hopes of stumbling across a pair. i know they always have a number of rusts in there, but theyre usually cotton pull ons that id never wear to a show.

    Sorry, don't see the port as a poor-man's rust. I don't think it's going to cut it. Port is definitely more like a burgandy (a blue-based red) and not an orange-based red like the rust is. I'm also not digging it in the hunters. It surprises me that you'd even consider it since you always seem pretty conservative! You may know I am not very conservative and I would not rock port in the hunters at the A shows.

    The port is a real burgundy/merlot color in person. Great color and awesome for schooling - but not a good substitute for rust. I have the Supremes in rust and they are awesome. Worth the wait

    Nope. I wouldn't go near a show ring (at least for the hunters) with the Port. I love, love, love the color for schooling, but it is no where close to the traditional rust.

    Try this site. Not TS but very nice, says they are in stock in the rust:

    http://www.oldhabit.com/shop/index.c...1.5657&id=2209

    They call them Ladies' Sandringham 4-Way Stretch Britches. (ug, britches, I hate that - makes them sound like underpants! ). But despite that, they do look nice. I have the 4-way stretch in tan and I like them as well as TS - similar heavy, nice material, similar construction.

    Good luck!

    Saw someone wearing the port at a show last week. I thought it looked really odd....there's definitely a pink-y undertone.

    I would either go with the schooling rust for now or just wait for the supremes (which are definitely a prettier rust!).

    I'm with everyone else, I'd skip the Port. Have you tried the Ariat breeches? The All Circuit and Pro Circuit come in rust now.

    I was actually told that TS is not making the supremes in rust anymore by a tack shop....is that true? Or can you still get them? I wanted to order a pair and was told that I needed to switch my order to the royal hunters to get rust. I am considering that but I really don't like the fit on the royal hunters as well.

    Skip the port if you want rust. Then, check ebay. I think I wound up with 3-4 pairs of the good (expensive) TS breeches in rust for probably $10-20 each. One had a torn up knee patch but was otherwise in perfect shape, $8.

    I didn't realize that, thanks for the info. And to the OP, no port will not be an acceptable substitution for rust IMO. Why not try the ones from Old Habit instead? And I believe Horse Country in Warrenton also has rust breeches.

    Where did you order these? I just bought a pair of Ariat breeches and like the fit better than the TS....would love a pair of rust.

    Oops, I got the "All Circuit," not the "Pro Circuit." There's no picture yet of the rust...

    The port britches really arn't a substitute for rust, but the clay colored britches are pretty close. They're just not quite as orangey, but could definitely pass for rust.

    yea, i did that too. on shopzilla, google, google shop, shop wiki, ebay, prettymuch everywhere. i saw all those same sites, except the unfortunate part is that only about 2 or three sites actually carried rust supremes and they both had them on backorder.

LOL. oh well. will be heading out to the tack shop tomorrow to look for rusts.
