I realized this thread is old but had much of the info i was wanted, found in a search. but i have a few more questions.l...
I'd love more info on breeches. i'm currently plus sized but working hard to fix that. so i really don't want to spend big money on them. where does a person find them? used is ok by me. would simple yoga pants from walmart work? or does the seam rub? maybe i could put a knee patch on something like those, for now? what kind of fabric are the knee patches made from?
this is a whole nuther ball game for me, I am in ranching/cowboy country, but have realized the jeans are stiff, hot and just not working!! i wear a very lightweight 'activewear' pant during the summer days as i won't wear shorts, and thought duh! why am i killing myself in jeans to ride in???
i burn like crazy, but hate getting hot. we dont' have the humidity here like some of you, tho. wow. i find that a very light tank top, but wear that long sleeved cotton type over it, unbuttoned. the air gets 'fluffed' into the shirt, you can wet it down since you have a top on, and it keeps the sun from your skin. i get mine at the local thrift shop cuz they will get trashed soon being so light colored.
