Does anyone know of other brands that would work well for someone who fits perfectly in Ariat breeches? I don't live close enough to a decent tack shop with a large enough selection to go try on a bunch, so I'm stuck with online sales. I know 28 Ariat fits me really well, and side zips seem to agree more with my body proportions (no sagging zipper in the crotch ). Unfortunately, I can't find a very wide selection of styles and colors in side-zip Ariats at a reasonable price, so I need some more ideas.
I've heard that TS is a straighter, slimmer cut. Is that accurate? If so, hat type is unlikely to work for me; in order to fit the thighs, the waist would probably end up being too big. Plus TS is pretty stinkin expensive Then I feel like some of the other brands just don't look like they're very good quality. Maybe I'm being too picky (known to happen! Haha)
