Meanwhile, I have like 6 pairs of insanely patterned breeches from Beany's (http://www.beanysbreeches.com/) - some that make that look tame! Granted, there are only a few that I am actually brave enough to wear to the barn...! The others will have their day, one day - maybe when I'm 70 and no longer care what anyone thinks!
I prefer more traditional solid colors, blue, brown, khaki or black, boring I know. These are in a US size Large....that's what I typically wear. I can't imagine wrapping my butt in a pair of those! The leg opening at the bottom looks weird to me too. I'm pretty sure my horse would object also.
"My biggest fear is that when I die my husband is going to try to sell all my horses and tack for what I told him they cost."
This busy floral print is apparently 'in' for this season, or the stores are trying to make it that way. Shopping recently I've seen this print on pants in all sort of stores, even nice ones. Not my cup of tea.
true story- I tried a pair on 'just for fun' and could NOT get them off of me fast enough. They were literally scary. I looked in the mirror and stripped them off before I could fall into a major depression. And I am not fat. Not even close. They 'moved' on me even though I was standing still. Scary.
I would totally wear them if they were in my size.....I figure, I'm already riding a tiny brightly colored pony as an adult...whats a little more color! And NO ONE would steal them....or borrow them...and my SO wouldn't attempt to use them as pj's or stage props...
Hmmmmm..... there's something frighteningly tempting about them, in a perverse way. However as someone else said, they really should have made them with dark patches/black full seat.
But I'm fairly certain viewparadise has our reality check. It reminds me of the pink seersucker breeches from a few years back. My trainer mentioned them and was 'aghasted'... I saw them at a tack shop and was intrigued, so i tried on a pair...
I am still embarrassed, and it was only me in the changing room! (For the record, a material like seersucker that is... dimpled, shouldn't ever be skin tight. It was the ankle-to-waist insta-cellulite look.)
(A decidedly unhorsey) MrB knocks over a feed bucket at the tack shop and mutters, "Oh crap. I failed the stadium jumping phase."
(he does listen!)
