    Ok girls... what brand of regular denim jeans (not riding jeans per se) do you recommend for those who need a high rise, but long leg? I HATE, HATE, HATE trying on pair after pair after pair, only to find that a) they don't come up/over enough (homie doesn't show her groceries) or b) the leg is too short.

    Stretch jeans would be fine since I do bend over whilst trimming a lot and that stretch is more comfie, but regular are ok too.

    Choco, do you want jeans to work/ride in? Wranglers are always a good bet for that depending on what shape you are. I am pretty straight up and down and the men's fit me well. Plus I can order whatever leg length I want, which is nice since I have a longish inseam.

    Yeah work-in jeans. I've totally gone with tights/breeches to ride in. So much more comfie!

    Thanks for the tip on the Wranglers... I'll try anything at this point

    I have never worn ladies Wranglers (they have a waist and I do NOT!) so I cannot comment on those, but the men's are hard wearing and despite not being stretchy, I always found them comfy for barn work. Not something I would go out on the town in, but much longer lasting than my beloved Levi's in terms of toughness! And I love the inseam options since I find it hard to find anything longer than 32 or 33.

    The only brand that fits me is the Levi's curvy boot leg. They come in short and long so you shouldn't have any issue finding them long enough. Plus they are stretchy.

    Women's Wranglers fit me and I love the $20 tractor supply brand as well . . never feel bad when i blow through those by riding in them often.

    Just had to share; if you are border line plus sizes or curvy with lots of breeches not fitting due to cut like me, check out Horze.com Silvia Denim and Grand Prix Breeches. I wear 12 or 14 in street clothes; but have a terrible time finding breeches in regular sizes to fit as I have small waist and WIDE hips; I can wear a 34 or 36 if cut wide in the hips but can't wear most brands unless they offer plus sizes and then have to belt or alter waist. I am 33.5" waist and 46.5" hips and the Horze Silvia Denim full seat breeches fit me and are soo comfy!!! They are forming fitting but so stretchy and comfy.

    If your looking for jeans with a med rise waist long leg and some streach go for the Wrangler q-Baby Jeans. Only selected retailers have them in stock but most Wrangler sellers can order them in. Love them!

    so I'm looking for a new show coat to do some local hunter shows. Any ideas? I'm an 18-20 in street clothes due to big chest and broad shoulders (thank you grandma!). I dont want to spend a fortune.

    I think the RJ classic coats fit very nicely for larger chested/broader shoulders.

    I agree. They are nice quality, reasonably priced, and come in a variety of sizes.

    I would be interested in this. I am unwilling to get measured for custom unless it is someone REALLY experienced.

    Fuller Fillies make show coats and are sized generously. Try smartpak.com or ebay.

    Several of my friends have the Dublin River boots. I had been lusting over them as they are waterproof and lined. Thought they would make good winter barn boots. Unfortunately, I have 18 inch calves and have a hard time finding boots/chaps to fit off the rack. A local tack store was having a sale and I found the same type of boots in Shire's brand which fit great without being "plus sized". They are great to wear around the barn, but also comfortable to ride in.

    Have you considered getting the shorter river boots, the mid river? I think those hit just below the calf. And Jeffers has them on sale now...they are the cheapest I've found them anywhere. http://www.jefferspet.com/dublin-mid...EQU/cp/0V-JA6/

    Was perusing eBay and found this insanely low priced black coat. I have one of the 18/24 coats, and the quality is very good. This one is a steal:

    I would have nabbed it but that size is too big.

    Not sure if it has been posted, but Devon-Aire makes a very nice field boot, the Camden, which comes in an XX Wide calf.
