Thursday's Threads plus a bonus breeches review at the end!
Sweater: Seventh Avenue
Belt: J Crew
Shoes: Sperry TopSider
That's what I wore to work today, but I have a riding outfit to share too!
Helmet: Charles Owen AYR8
Sweatshirt: Ugh, sorry, bad blogger. I forget the brand on this one
Belt: Ralph Lauren
This is another Poshmark find. It's an older belt and seems fairly well worn, but I loved that snap for the closure.
Breeches: George Morris Collection Add Back Knee Patch Breeches
Socks: Dreamers and Schemers
Boots: La Mundial
Spurs: Centaur and ColorTack
Spur straps: Mane Jane
Ok, as promised, let's talk more about these breeches. The George Morris Collection is from the parent company JPC Equestrian. They are also responsible for TuffRider, Equine Couture, and the Baker Collection (though they weren't the original Baker creators). This particular pair is the Add Back Knee Patch Breech.
Lastly, these have sock bottoms which are definitely one of the best things to happen to breeches since stretch was added.
Overall, for the price, I like these breeches a lot. I wish they looked a little nicer on me, but if you're not especially lumpy and bumpy, they're just fine. I would never wear them in white though!
I think the sizing on these is more true to size than some of the other JPB brands. I find Equine Couture and sometimes Tuffrider to run a little small, but these are more generous in my opinion.
They are available in eight colors: white, navy, gray, green, cornflower blue, rust, wine, and tan. There are two other styles in the collection as well, but I have't tried those yet. I would consider adding another color or two to my riding closet in the future though! Retail on these seems to be right around the $95-$100 range depending where you get them. I got mine through Victory Canter, and they usually have a coupon code for 10-15% off on any given day. I had some Canter Cash and also used the coupon code so mine came in around $80 plus I got free shipping.
And that's finally the end of this very long Thursday's Threads! Have any favorites from today? Thoughts on the breeches? Have you tried them? What are you favorite breeches?
