Breeches that feel like tailoreds?

Hey all,
I feel like I've spent forever searching for the perfect pair of breeches to compare to my TS trophy hunters without the price tag. Seriously, I love them. They're the only breeches I own that fit comfortably, and don't rub the back of my knees.
I've tried Ariats, RJ's, Elations, Equine Coutures, etc. and have had no luck. The fit of them is doable (not as great as TS, but doable for schooling), but the material is my real issue. Tailoreds are SO stretchy and thin without showing every flaw. I think I may have a weirdly long hip to knee ratio, so breeches tend to bunch around my knee, dig in, and combined with my field boots, cause the back of my knees to be rubbed raw and bleeding constantly.
So now that I've complained a bunch, does anyone have any advice?
It's not an issue with my boots.
I don't want to drop a ton of money on schooling breeches. Just want TS-like material and similar fit! TIA

I am unfamiliar with the TS brand, but I recently purchased a couple of Tough 1 schooling breeches with silicone knee patches that I am quite pleased with! No pockets, but that is a minor issue. I have long thighs, so finding a cheap pair of schoolers in regular length that fit my long legs was a pleasant surprise!

When I say cheap I mean it; found these on sale for $35 +/-

I don't know what the $$ is like for spending...
Harry Hall breeches years ago were like wearing nothing, they moved with you as a second skin.
Then they were near $100, found them just now for around $35.00 with shipping from fruugo...
Also found the manufacturers website that has a extensive selection and price range...

Not sure why some are so cheap but if the fabric is as it was back then...
I had TS also so know what it is you search for...
Maybe, just maybe these would work or be comparable...

This might not be very helpful, but Smartpak has loads of breeches with different sizing, including tall. Their sale bin has good deals.

No diet, no hoof. No hoof, no horse. No horse is not an option!

I have a pair of TS, no model that I can tell, probably 10 years old, small hole in knee, size 28 but I can't fit my thighs in them, not sure if they are true 28, seem a little small or not too stretchy. If they are your size the mail can take them your way.

I use tuff rider breeches for day to day, I don't like the low rise anymore, can't tuck a shirt in them. I get the ribbed with knee patch. They come in longs. Also around the 35$ price range but have also found them for less from time to time. Pull ons with inside pocket pouch or regular zip ups with outside zip pocket, both great!

Forgot to add that these breeches (more like tights but not too thin) are cooling breeches, the kind that wick moisture away so very practical here in the deep south!
