Our Sizing Comparisons

Karrie: I wear a 24 in the LG breeches, but wear a 26 in Smartpak Breeches
Mallory: I think they run large and I could almost wear a size down but they are very comfy!

HKM - Run true to size

Lauria Garrelli - Runs about .5-1 size larger than most brands.
Most are cut with a higher waist in the back than the front for extra coverage.
The front tends to fit like a medium-waist.

These are the softest to touch breeches that I have ever seen.

#7684
8.0 95% Cotton,
5% Elastane
These are typically your denim breeches.
Stretchy/elastic around the seat, thighs, & knees in the horizontal position, but not as much stretch vertically.
Medium thickness, as expected with denim, that might be best for spring & fall riding. Could be ridden during the summer time, but could potentially hold in heat & sweat if worn all day in the humidity.

36% Nylon,
7% Elastane
Stretchy/elastic around the seat, thighs, & knees in the horizontal position, with a little bit of stretch vertically.
Thin to medium thickness; not as thick as denim but not as thin & breathable as other materials.
These have a durable feel that allows for dirt to easily wipe off & doesn't stick to the fabric.
#8225
5.0 95% Cotton,
5% Elastan
Stretchy/elastic for all comfort while riding, grooming, & teaching.
Medium thickness, the cotton fabric most likely won't allow for moisture wicking. Might be best for spring & fall riding. Could be ridden during the summer time, but could potentially hold in heat & sweat if worn all day in the humidity.
A soft, cotton feel.
