    Default Breech Fit

    What is the proper fit for breeches and is there a good way of explaining it? For example: There's the "pinch test" for a jacket, but what about for breeches?

    I think w/ breeches, it's a little more subjective than a jacket. For example, some prefer a loser fit, while others like them tight. The material you buy makes a differnce too. For example, my four-way stretch Tailored Sportsman breeches fit a little more liberally than the two-way.

    I prefer my breeches to be low rise w/ a tad of room through the hip, not not sloppy. Similar to the fit you see in the Smart Pak banner at the top of this page.

    Its personal preference but if they feel comfortable on you (aren't so tight you cant sit in your saddle and so loose they are falling off) then your all set as long as they dont look sloppy!
