If they're comfortable, they're ok.
Like most pants I have, mine shrink a little in the dryer. They always stretch back after I wear them for a little bit, though.

I worked at a barn with a few male grand prix riders and their breeches were all quite snug. I think it's strictly a comfort thing, if you're not feeling restricted in anyway then they're fine! Also, I'm assuming men's breeches have just as much stretch as women's correct? Too tight would half to border on cutting off circulation to anything!

I was also thinking female when I read the thread title and I was thinking, if you have to ask, the answer is probably yes...

Thanks for the responses. I'm going to roll with it.

They're very comfy, no restriction, It's just my quads, I do a lot of leg exercises at the gym so I've probably got a tad more muscle down there than most other male riders.

They look fine. If you go with a larger size, the waist would be too lose and would gap with a belt.

Men don't always go baggy.







Bottom line, it is what you find comfortable. Some men wear a more relaxed style, others don't.

Ignore the ladies in this thread, they just love to see a guy in tight pants! :)

I think you should go up a size or two. Loose fitting breeches are not only much more comfortable to ride in, but also more "forgiving" in regards to the male anatomy becoming visible - think how the ladies do not like visible panty lines... the same rule applies (or should apply!) to us.

TuffRider makes decent breeches, btw. I use their TuffRider Coolmax Pro's and they look almost identical to Tailored Sportsman but hold up better and are a bit cheaper too.

The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be, it's being content with who we are.
