Breeches question...

I need to buy breeches, but due to a lack of riding clothes stores in my area, I will be buying them offline. I usually wear a size 28 in jeans, and this may be a silly question, but generally (I know it may vary a little from brand to brand) will I wear a 28 in breeches too?

That sounds about right to me. Breeches are stretchier, tho, so depends on how tight you like 'em. You can always send back, tho that is a pain in the A.
I love full seat breeches, myself, but I appreciate the extra "stickkum".
There are so many wonderful brands out there.

I wear a size 1 in jeans and a 26 in breeches. Jean size is not the same as breech size.

Breeches are sold by waist size, so measure your waist with a cloth measuring tape to find out what size you need.
