Guide to Tailored Sportsman Breeches
Posted by Megan Maxwell on
Tailored Sportsman equestrian apparel has been on the equestrian scene for more than 50 years and is made in the USA, which explains why they are infamous for their exceptional quality, comfort, variety, and fit. Further, while Tailored Sportsman is best known for their breeches, they have also emerged as a powerhouse in the sun shirt and belt categories as well. Read on to learn about each style and to find which one will best suit you!
TAILORED SPORTSMAN BREECHES
Finding the right breech can be costly and frustrating, as such Tailored Sportsman is a great one to consider because of the variety in fit that they offer, while maintaining exceptional comfort across styles. Breeches are an essential piece of riding gear therefore, finding the best pair of breeches for you is critical because discomfort while riding can lead to poor communication between rider and horse.
Tailored Sportsman breeches are made of a proprietary 4-way stretch technical fabric and should fit snugly through the seat, leg, and thigh in order to avoid chaffing and pressure marks or worse pressure sores. All Tailored Sportsman breeches are designed with a 2’’ waistband which fits most belts, including their much sought after Quilted C Belt.
TAILORED SPORTSMAN BREECH COLORS
Tailored Sportsman is famous for their huge variety in color options. Their core colors include:
- Black & Blue (Navy)
- Charcoal (very dark grey)
- Black Forest (hunter green)
- French Blue
In addition to the core Tailored Sportsman colors, they offer a huge variety of seasonal colors. Tailored Sportsman devotees know that the seasonal colors may be around for a season or two and then not reappear for a few years. Regardless, Tailored Sportsman offers the most variety in color of any brand season to season. Some notorious customer favorites have been:
- Sailor Blue
- Lake Blue
- And soooo many others!
Color breeches are available to order in any style (subject to fabric availability) including kids’ breeches and jodhpurs. If you see a color you like but not in the style you like, make sure you email us for a special order at no extra cost!
OUR MOST POPULAR TAILORED SPORTSMAN BREECHES
Tailored Sportsman breeches come in a variety of styles, fits, and sizes. Perhaps most importantly is that any Tailored Sportsman style can be ordered in either short, regular, or long. For women 5’6’’ and over we recommend buying styles in a long, and for women 5’3’’ and under you may be more comfortable in a short. Because there are not as many breech options across brands that offer short leg options, we find that some fit confusion can occur when deciding between a short and a regular leg length. When in doubt order the regular, better yet contact us and we can help you decide whether a short would be a good option for you.
At Canterbury Tack & Apparel we carry ladies sizes 22-32, though size 34-36 are available as a special order in any style and leg length at no extra cost. We regularly stock breeches in 24-30 long, and process short leg options as special orders. For the kiddos we stock sizes 6-16.
