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 because they will get trashed soon being so light colored.
