  • Piper Fullseat Breeches - Raisin/Stone color combo

    Do you all think the cream-colored suede in these breeches would get stained after some riding? I'm intrigued by this color combo...

    Of course, don't all light colors get stained by the saddle eventually? Regardless, thanks for the link, they're so pretty!
    Custom tack racks!

      I got that color in the knee-patch because I figured the pretty cream-colored suede would meet the same fate as every pair of white show breeches after a few rides. (Thank goodness you can now get more pairs with black or gray full seats!)

      That being said, so far my tall boots haven't managed to change the color of the suede in the knee-patches yet - granted it's only been about 3 rides but still, my tall boots usually cause color changes before my saddle does. So that might be a good sign.

        I'm so torn! They're so pretty, and all I have are dark blue breeches. I wish there was a nice forest green version.

          The hadley comes in a spruce with navy seat that is really lovely.

            I love that color but decided darker was more slimming for my figure...

              I was so angry when I saw all the GORGEOUS new colors for Piper and Hadley. I already own too many breeches. No fair :'(

              Those raisin/stone ones are nice!

                  I have a pair of the SmartPak that are a maroon/burgundy with a pale grey FS. They are 3 years old and there is not a mark on the patches. I have used them in at least 6 different saddles both jump and dressage. I have used both leather half chaps and tall boots in 2 different colors without staining them.

                  OP- I say go for it.
                  Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)
