I use jeans, all my jeans come from charity shops, a good zip is a bonus. I used to use jodphurs but they were annoying to put on and take off and ripped more often (it was always awkward :/)

Wear ones that are the most comfortable to YOU.

What is comfortable for me or Jane Horse down the road might not fit you well.

Hopefully, some UK riders chime in on this, as they would know European brands better then those of us living across the pond....

Why not just drop into a saddlery and try some on?

Hey, I'm in the UK, so this should be relevant :-)
They normally come in inches rather than dress sizes, so if you're a 8-10, you should be about a 26-28inch waist.
I would recommend going and trying as many pairs on as possible, but you might find the knee patch style more comfy than full seat, especially as you're just starting out.
If you will be riding in short boots, it would be wise to go with full length jodphurs, but if wearing tall boots you might be better of with breeches which end half way down your calf, and don't stuff up your boots with extra material :-)
Hope that helps!!

Diifferent brand fit very different shapes and sizes you have to find the ones you feel most comfortable in.

I am a larger rider and prefer the fit of Dublin breeches but again everybody is different even within a size. you can be size 12 short. tall, etc so go to your nearest tack shop and try some on :D

I have two pairs of Windsor joddies, one in black and one in cream. Can't find the black pair at the moment but they are the BEST, so comfy and the fit is fantastic. They seem to fit a variety of body types as the material has a lot of stretch. (I am from Australia though, idk if you have Windsors)

Dublins are good too, and usually cheaper. I used to have a pair of Lyndi J full sead jods that I bought too big because I was growing and they were expensive, but they stretched and so I never managed to grow into them. The full seat wore holes through it in the end, probably because I was using a suede synthetic saddle.

I also ride in jeans sometimes (but I prefer jods, it's easier to get on; my jeans don't stretch), and I am right now wearing a black pair of no-brand joddies that fit me terribly but are comfy.
