    Default Favorite Semi-Custom or Custom Breeches

    Where does everyone like to buy their semi-custom or custom breeches? Especially ones that don't completely break the bank!

    Don't have personal experience with them but know quite a few people who are very happy with them. Not exactly the cheapest option out there I'm sure though!

    Sorry for bring rude, but those breeches are wicked ugly! Do people really pay $400 for breeches with a tramp stamp on them?

    I've mainly seen them on dressage riders but I know there are H/J riders out there that do too... I'm not one of them but to each their own!

    I've never ordered any but I have a horrible time finding off the rack that fit properly so I wanted to explore the option.

    I saw the company and they are a bit pricey I know you can get them without the embellishment but they are still a bit more then I wanted to spend. Thanks though!

    Tailored sportsmans have that awkward triangle in the back so you can tailor the waist. Get a pair that fits your thigh and are long enough then get the waist tailored.

    I've tried Tailored Sportsmans or at least the ones my local tack stores carry and all of them are too low rise. I'm super long in the torso so even mid-rise fits me like low rise.

    Kwalker024- I have the same issue with alot of breeches being too low and then looking like a plumber. The more expensive Tailored Sportsmans tend to have a higher rise and that is what I go with. I have actually called and ask for the types that you would wear with a shadbelly coat in order to get a higher rise. I fit my thigh, hips and bottom and then alter the waist as needed.
