The Tailored Sportsman Trophy Hunter Mid-Rise - Front Zip
Only one problem
I love my Tailored Sportsman breeches. I loved the fit of the front zip, but because I don't usually tuck my shirt in, I would get a pinch everytime I sat down. I returned these for the side zip Tailored Sportsman breeches.

I've been a tailored girl for years, every once in a while ill try a different brand, but I always return it and go back to what I love!

Mid-rise is perfect compromise!
Ok, I can't speak to durability because I sadly had to return these breeches. What I really liked: The fabric is nice and the mid-rise is the PERFECT height for a short-waisted person such as myself - regular rise breeches come up to my bra (ok, not quite, but almost!), while the low rise breeches gap at the back. The mid-rise is the perfect compromise. The euro seat is a nice style update. The tan color is perfect for the show pen. Light enough to be more modern than the green-beige, but dark enough to be slimming and hide those inevitable dirt smudges. I really really really wanted to love these breeches! Unfortunately, they just were not flattering on me. I'm 5'6" and very hourglass shaped. I wear a 32R in most breeches. Unfortunately, I think these are shaped for somebody with a straighter build. They were a little big in the waist, snug in the thighs, and made my butt look...square-ish. I realize I don't have a breech model's body, but I just couldn't get over how odd these made me look. The Pikeur Ciara side-zip breech looks great on me...just not so great on my wallet...but unfortunately I can't make myself like how any of the Tailored's fit...and at this point, I've tried them ALL! (Thank goodness for SmartPak's liberal return/exchange program for sized items!)
I would note, the front-zip version of this breech does fit slightly higher than the side-zip version.

Excellent - Love These
These are the best breeches I have ever worn. The fit is great, the material is the perfect weight and feel. Like some other reviewers, I also have a curvy figure and have no problem with these breeches. My straighter figured riding friends also wear these and love them. I've yet to meet anyone they didn't fit. These are the only breeches I wear now. More colors would be great!

Great Fitting Breeches
These mid rise pants are the best! Not to low and not to high. Perfect fit especially if you have curves. They wash like a dream, and are perfect for showing or schooling....love the euro seat.

The Search Is OVER!
I am a curvy girl- no question about it. I am 5'8", 155 lbs and these breeches FIT every curve. I wear a 30 R and my show pants are a 32R because they are light colored and cling a bit more. Honestly, this breech is unstoppable! The fabric is soooo comfortable and fidgure flattering...if ya catch my drift! :) Also, the wide, 2 inch waistband and front zipper and give me great shape and tummy tucking appeal. I really couldn't be any happier with the fit, feel and quality of the mid rise, front zip TS Trohpy Hunter breech! The price is much more appealing than my other $300+ favorites (Pikuer Cara).
* I also like the FITS Beka but I have to buy the XL because the waist is too high and tight-- but GREAT fabric there as well!-- even though I wear a jean size 8-10.
I hope this info is helpful to other gals with dangerous curves out there in search of a great fitting breech!! xoxoxoxxo*
I can't wait to see the Mid Rise TS Trophy Hunter in some other fun colors!?- like PLUM!? These are my favorite for their excellent value, durability and shape retrention. Teh Euro seat is awesome, too!!
Thank you Smart Pak for your amazing customer service & FREE returns that keeps me coming back year after year.
