Has anyone washed their Supreme TSs? The tag in my new ones say dry clean, but it seems like with what the fabric is, they should be washable... Has anyone tried it and have they lived? Should I just dry clean? I won't hold anyone to it, lol.

yep, another washer of both supreme and royal hunter breeches. I don't even use woolite any more, although I probably should. I do turn inside out, wash in gentle cycle with very little detergent, and hang to dry. I only get them dry cleaned now when I want them nicely pressed because I am a terrible ironer.
I agree with above poster that says you can wash things like chaps, I've done it with pepede and had good results. In fact should do my half chaps now that I am thinking of it, they're gross.
So, as long as you put them on the low cycle and only use light detergent they will be ok? Does this apply to all tailored sportsman breeches or just some of them?
If answer was yes to the last question....what happens if you put your dry-clean-only hunt coat in the was on low cycle with only a bit of detergent? Hehe just checking to make sure everyone was completely awake
Funnily enough, my two pairs of TS's are identical except for one little detail: One of them says "dry clean", the other says "wash cool gentle cycle"
Straight from the horse's mouth... I think you're fine to do it. I actually found the deer skin patches to stay softer and last longer with cool washing instead of dry cleaning. I dry cleaned when I was younger, and then kind of gave up on it- the closest dry cleaner is now 45 minutes away from my house.
I've washed all my breeches, including my TS supreme's, for years ... turn them inside out, zip/velcro everything closed, wash on cold/delicate with woolite or similar. I hang them to dry.
They've held up fine, and in fact the knee patches stay nice and soft instead of getting stiff like they do when I've tried dry cleaning instead.
Never had any problems at all.
I've only had a problem once, and I'm not sure what exactly happened. Pulled the breeches out of the wash and the knee patches had basically disintegrated But, they were VERY old. I have not had a problem since
