    Exclamation Red Breeches!!!!

    Hey, what do you guys think of red breeches? I think I am going to get a pair for myself! Plain beige gets kind of boring, doesn't it?

    I don't know... something about those just screams "Emo skinny jeans" to me... I see them all the time around here (usually on guys!) in purple, aqua, red, etc. They don't do it for me

    But I do agree that beige gets boring!

    waaah those are bright!

    I have a pair of burgundy breeches that I love, and a pair of forest green ones that make me look like Robin Hood Girl in Tights (but they were on sale!)

    I'd say keep looking, go for some plaid!

    Red is one of my favorite colors, but the particular shade of red on those doesn't do it for me. Plus they look just a little too much like longjohns. I'd keep looking for the trapdoor on the back.

    I like them! I know it looks like a lot of red, but thats cause thats all thats in the picture. They will stand out much less when they aren't on a white background, and worn with a shirt. Plus half the leg will be covered up by boots or halfchaps anyways. I say buy them!

    I have a pair, in a darker red than the pic. I look nice in them, even if they do clash with my horse

    I love them--actually I'm going to be ordering 3-4 new pairs of breeches (desperately needed ) here soon and I've added that link to my list of ones to choose between.

    Whew! They are bright. But, I kind of like them, for the youngsters. I'd look like a giant red balloon in them.

    Put a couple of stripes on the side and you'll have me sold!

    If they were cheaper, I would buy them. Now I will have to check out ebay!

    Have them...love them.Also have the ariat brittany in red.The Equine Coutoure are amazing material but don't fit as well as the Ariat's.They kind of gap in the back at the waist.Material is awesome.

    The product description said there was subtle nautical striping on the back belt loop.

    I'm thinking subtle is not a description I'd use for those breeches!

    The real question is how well does red hide green slobber stains?

    I totally like them! I'm assuming they are for practice rather than showing though.

    I would totally wear those. In fact, they look like they could match my red dressage saddle pad pretty well.
