Breeches Collection and Reviews

I'm pretty fussy about breeches so I love to see what breeches other people love to get ideas for future shopping.  So on that note I thought I'd give a little run down of the breeches currently in my arsenal and let you know what I think of them in case you need any shopping inspiration! All of these are knee patch breeches with sock bottoms because those are my requirements for breeches.

Equi theme Lea
£43.99
Anthracite (Also available in Chocolate and Navy)

Pros:
Stretchy panels behind knees allows for better movement
Super soft sock bottom
Quite thick material so no panty lines
Cons:
No grip on knee patches
Started pilling quite quickly
Sizing:
True to size

Caldene Print Tech
£49.99 (I got mine for £25)
Beige (Also available in black)

Pros:
Thinner material so good for warm weather
Super sticky knee patches
Nice soft sock bottoms
Cons:
Tendency for panty lines
Sizing:
Go a size up

Aztec Diamond Spark
£90
Aubergine (Also available in blue, red, black and grey)


Pros: 
Super soft material
Nice sticky knees
Sock bottom is like silk
Cons:
Slightly narrow belt loops
Sizing:
Go a size down

HKM Lauria Garrelli Polo Classic
£89.99 (I got mine for £65)
Olive Green (Also available in pink and deep blue)



Pros:
Really strong material
Lovely detail
Cons:
I actually can't think of any
Sizing:
Go a size up

Ariat Performer
£44.95
Beige (Also available in navy and white)


Pros:
Holds up well to wear
Comes in long
Thicker so perfect for cold days
Cons:
A little stiff
Sock bottom is only a half insert so not as easy to get off
Sizing:
True to size

Tredstep Symphony Rosa
£89.99 (I got mine for £45)
Coco (Also available in white, tan, truffle, french blue and midnight grey)
Casual Buster photobomb

Pros:
Comes in long
Nanosphere fabric means they are easy to keep clean
Cons:
A little baggy around the lower leg
Sizing:
True to size

Final note: I would be happy to recommend any of these breeches but if you were going to go out and buy ONE pair then the HKM's or Aztec Diamond's would be stand outs for me.

  1. Interesting - I'm not actually very familiar with the HKMs

    1. I highly recommend giving them a try if you're on the market for new breeches.
