    Default The Right Breeches

    I have a favorite pair of breeches. Only problem - there's no name brand on them! I bought them at a tent sale and I think they were a mock-up for a company's new line.

    They are:

    1) Front pockets (no zipper)
    2) euro seat - seat is same material as the rest of the breech
    3) no knee patches
    4) mine are blue, so I imagine they come in other colors
    5) velcro ankle
    6) the inside of the waist band if black and two red stripes
    7) I think they may be a low-rise. They are not high waisted, but it's hard for me to tell as I have no waist.

    Anyone have any idea who could have possibly made these? Or, what brand may offer something similar? I adore them!

    Thank you!

    Perhaps it would help to actually *see* a picture or two of the breeches?

    My Rider Sport breeches have a red and black striped waistband and they come in so many styles. Did you get them at Dover?

    Grand Prix also has a black and red waistband, although they aren't striped, they actually say "Grand Prix."

    Do they have a snap or hook closure at the zipper?

    My Riding Sport breeches also have a black/red striped waistband and no brand name or identifying marks.

    Sounds like the Riding Sport Competitor breeches from
    Dover. Are they like a woven twill or cotton knit?

    By no zipper, do you mean on the front pockets, or are they pull on breeches?

    Thank you all. Yes, I bought them at Dover. They are a cotton knit.
    They have a zipper in the front - no zippers on the pockets. It is a hook closure.

    On the back belt loop (above your bum) it is an "X" if that makes sense.

    I don't think they are the Riding Sport Competitor as these do not have knee patches.
