I'm sure the woman paid a lot of money for them, especially if they were custom made. I don't really see this as being a hilarious story; it's actually kind of sad.
I know she paid a lot, and that's why I sympathized with her (despite the fact that I didn't want to buy them). But they weren't custom made. It was just a very expensive, good quality company she had bought for her daughter. And although it is sad that she cannot sell them after having spent so much (and her daughter barely wearing them), there is nothing wrong with seeing the comical side of things.

I have to agree with SR. Those breeches are not silly, they were very fashionable. Many of the more traditional riding situations (mounted police, etc) still wear that style of breeches.

Quote:
If they fit properly, they probably look a looooooot better, but they were too long and too big and I wish so bad now that I had taken a picture of myself.

If they fit they would look ok (like the RCMP people, I don't think they look ridiculous, just traditional) but they were much too big on me and I did look funny. Although they were fashionable, I still sort of find them funny looking when they are just on a hanger, I am from a later generation so I suppose like many other things I prefer the newer fashion. Most probably in 20-30 years people will think that certain things we wore now looks funny.

Oh, what a story. Made me giggle .

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I read it and cracked up! As a mom, I remember some times when my kids needed me to be the "no" person - aren't you glad your mom stood up for you!

Really high quality breeches , and it cost me i'd say 100 .. so it good you didn't buy ur neighbor's breeches LOL =DDDD

And for all whos saying it's a fashionable , well it was a fashionable not now !! Like would you ever cut your hair to
A mullet !! Well guess what ; it was the fashion but I don't think people would pay a Pennie for it =p ... and even if it was a custom made , it was a custom made for her daughter 10 years ago not for hidalgo13 =D

My mother said that too. :P
She is very friendly but a bit "special" my neighbor. (but then aren't we all in some way :P). This incident happened 3-4 years ago, but a few months ago I saw her and she reminded me that she still had the pants if I wanted to buy them.
