    Tester’s Comments

    These breeches were extremely comfortable to wear and ride in. The fabric was thick without being chunky or restrictive and they didn’t sag despite being worn all day.

    These breeches received a number of compliments from people on my yard who all asked what make they were.

    I like the high waist style, although it takes a bit of getting used to. My only criticism is that despite being 5ft 7ins tall, the breeches were still too long and I had to fasten them outside my boots, to prevent them rubbing.

    Although they are quite expensive, they are excellent quality and I would definitely buy another pair.
