What’s all the fuss about?
Four years ago, I decided I needed a new pair of breeches and realised I hadn’t kept up with the increasing innovation in this essential piece of kit. Being curvy with shortish legs, I’d always put up with uncomfortable, unflattering breeches that really made riding in them a bit annoying!
So, I went on a mission to find my perfect pair (and I do nothing by halves)! I was a sales rep at the time so lots of driving about meant I could stop in various tack shops all over the country and try on all sorts of brands. I tried on both well-known commercial brands, brands I’d never heard of and everything in between!
It was then I came across Montar breeches.
They fitted really, really, well! Also, they were so comfortable, I knew I could wear them all day, every day! They didn’t gap at the waist and they didn’t cut in at the waist. Additionally, the four-way, technical fabric they use means they fitted perfectly and stayed that way! They had a choice of normal waists and high waists and they had a ridiculous amount of styles and colours. They weren’t cheap but they weren’t as madly expensive as some others on the market that just didn’t fit me properly. To top it all off, they looked good…….really quite good…..happy Emily!
Without sounding too dramatic, that day probably changed my life! It was the day I thought about starting a retail business supplying lesser known brands. It was also the day I started to understand the technicalities of good breeches and that there was a need to spread the word about great quality. The seed of thought for Cavallo Lusso was born!
Oh, and four years on I still have that first pair of Montar breeches. I wear them all the time and they still look as good as when I bought them! Result! Since then, the innovations have moved on, don’t get me started on the new winter breeches……they are AMAZING! More about those in the autumn!
