I have not bought a new pair of breeches in the last 5-7 years and it seems that things have changed. There are a TON of new brands I’m not familiar with and unfortunately are not available locally for me to try on in person. Before I spend an exorbitant amount of money ordering online, and inevitably returning, I figured I would ask here first.
My absolute favorite breech (and pretty much all I own) is the Pikeur Ciara. Much to my dismay, they seem to be being discontinued. I went to Dover and tried on RJs, Dovers brand and Tredstep but was not overly impressed with any of them. I am not a TS fan. The fit is ok for me but I despise the cotton blend material of the Trophy Hunters.
I’m particularly interested in the Equilines, Cavalleria Toscana and Struck breeches but I have absolutely no idea how any of them run size wise and all the sizes are German or Italian. I am typically a normal 28 (40 in Pikeur) but can do a long depending on the brand. I carry more of my weight in my butt and thighs, so brands that are very straight cut don’t tend to work for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?!
