Do these fit properly?

For christmas I got Tailored Sportsman Low rise breeches (actually got them in January). They seem really short even though they are a long. They aren't mis-marked because I tried the brand on several different times at different places and they all fit like this. They wouldn't have shrunk either because I haven't washed them yet (Not gross because I only ride once a week, and i'm pretty sure washing breeches after every ride ruins them faster)

If they are too short there isn't anything I could do about it, but I'd just like to know!

It looks like the knee patches are in the right spot. I've not seen them without boots or half chaps so I'm a bad judge

^^That's what I was thinking too... The knees look OK to me, but I'm no expert.....

I would think they should go to your ankle. All the others I see go to the ankle. But the knee patch is in the right place. Odd.

TS breeches are notoriously "short". The knee patch is in the right spot, so they technically fit "right". Just be sure to pull long socks OVER them before you put your tall boots on. That will help keep the breeches down when you pull your boots on.

They're fine as long as the knee patches are in the right spot, which they are. Just wear long socks so your boots don't rub. Although I wouldn't suggest wearing them with just paddock boots because that would look a bit weird. I would wear half chaps with paddock boots or just tall boots and they would be fine.

By the way those are VERY nice breeches!

I love your breeches!!! :P

They look like they fit fine. Maybe a little bit short...The ones that I currently have go down to my ankles, but my first pair went down to about the same place as yours do. I just bought long socks to wear with my breeches.

I ride once a week and I wash them every time I ride because with the horses I ride they always get really dirty. Lol! But that is a good idea. When they don't get too dirty i'll probably just put them back in my dresser.

Yeah I figured that the knee patches were in the right spot. I wear them with knee-high socks and a half chap over boot. Though there is a little seam by the knee (people who have TS probably know what I am talking about) that shows about my half chaps.
horsegirl123-I had a pair of breeches that I consistantly washed and they started pilling (getting little balls of fabric and suede) on the legs and suede patches. That's why I don't wash mine consistantly.

Ok a riding tight or Jod goes down to the ankel and Breech goes down to mid calf! So those are right! Seems I'm the only one who knew bout horse show pants. I wouldn't wear those for lessons, save them for shows! TS are so amazing!
