    Default Nice cotton breeches?

    I really need a new pair of breeches before my next event. I need cotton because my skin can't deal with synthetic fabrics. I'm a UK 12-14, and I'm short, too.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I actually really like these: TuffRider Lowrise Wide Waistband Breech.

    They're pretty darn reasonable at under $50. 92% cotton, 8% spandex (I'm guessing spandex is okay for your skin?). They're comfortable - especially with the wide waistband. I don't find them to be as "lowrise" as some other brands. They run true to size in my experience.

    I have had and liked these in the past: http://www.jefferspet.com/on-course-...equ/cp/0V-LA1/ (moderately heavy cotton). Slightly more expensive, but very nice http://www.vtosaddlery.com/product/K...H/TSLTSLRB.htm
    If you want white, I like these http://www.doversaddlery.com/ariat-h...at/p/X1-35675/
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    I often prefer cotton breeches, and in my experience find Tuffrider, On Course, and VTO to have the best.

    These are the VTO ones: http://www.vtosaddlery.com/product/K...CH/VTOSHHB.htm

    I find that they're a good value. They do have other styles of the VTO breech available on their main breeches page.

    On Course Cotton Naturals have been great in the past, as well as any Tuffrider breeches. Devon Aire makes cotton breeches as well, but I can't remember if I've ever owned a pair. The nice thing about cotton breeches is that you can find some nice enough ones without paying an arm and a leg. I'm not crazy about the Ariat Breeches.

    If I were in the UK, I'd be all over Tally Ho breeches. I have one pair that is many years old and the fabric is woven, not knit, and it's almost all cotton. I think it has some spandex for stretch, but not much. Of course, now that Horsewares Ireland bought Tally Ho, they may have changed the fabric. Mine are the Athenas, and they have been VERY sturdy. I love them..

    I loooooove On Course Cotton Naturals.
    I tried the Shapleys for the first time and they totally rock. I wouldn't consider myself + size at all. The Shapleys are the first breeches that aren't too big in the waste.
    I did read that they run a little big so I ordered 2 sizes smaller than what I usually wear. I'm a size 10 or a 30 or 32 breech. My Shapleys are 28s.
    The down side is that I have a very squat torso so the waste band comes well up to my ribs. But because it fits so nicely it's totally doable. Though I'm super duper tall I can't order Longs because they add length to the torso section of the breeches. Though Shapleys in R are longer than a lot of the longs I've had in my lifetime.

    The On Course Cotton Low Rise worked really well too. I bought those in Longs since they are "low rise" and the rise was just right. Down side was they did gap a bit in the back. Not as bad as other makes. though.

    But either way, On Course is affordable and alllll cotton! yay!

    Thank you! I stopped by a different tack shop and found a couple of lovely pairs on sale for half price. No idea what brand they are (no tags) but they're super comfy and soft.
