    Default How do you tell between types of TS breeches?

    I have a pair of TS that don't fit, they were given as a gift... but there is no size/model tag in them. How in the world can I tell what type they are?

    The only clue I have is that they say hand wash... not dry clean only.

    Sometimes, you can try to guess off of what % of different fabrics they are made of, but it is hard.

    Thanks maigenesis... There's no tag that indicates any sort of size, fabric percentage, item number... Just the Tailored Sportsman logo tag and one that says to hand wash.

    Does it have a "full seat"? As in a line from the back of your calf to your but and back down the other leg? If so, they are the trophy hunter breech. If they do not have that, they are the classic tailoreds.

    Are they low-rise or a classic fit? That's another simple way to narrow it down. Compare the material to other breeches you have as well (if you have others) to try and distinguish fabric if you want. One option may be to compare the descriptions of TS breeches online or in a catalog to what you have. Good luck!

    No Euro seat; they don't seem to be low rise... I'm leaning towards the classic TS.
