Riding skirt
I absolutely love this skirt . I ordered a size 12 and I normally wear 8 or 10 in slacks or Jean's. I am tall and this came down a few inches above my ankles. I am 5'8". The fabric isn't heavy and I am so glad because I am wearing it for a summer re-enactment. The color is true to the photo. It is very flattering to my figure, also.

Love at first feel!
I absolutely love my Brushed Twill Riding Pant! The material is luxuriously soft...and of substance but not stiff. Though I have only tried them on and not worn them yet, they fit like a dream. On-line ordering of clothing is always a 'cross your fingers and hope for the best' type of situation. Customers reviews are so very helpful with not only choosing the right size, the first time, but other useful information. I am always disappointed when an item has not yet been reviewed. The one thing I did notice that is a bit questionable is, the lay of the fabric in the legs. It's almost like the cut is not quite right. You can see in the photo that the inseam area seems to pull a bit from the waist making a funny bunching of material. As a seamstress, I would try adding a bit more material and changing the the cut to add a bit more fullness to alleviate this awkward 'pull'. But no big deal in the overall scheme. Just needs a bit of tweaking for absolute perfection!

Next to my PJ pants these are the most comfortable pants I own! Brilliantly made and very stylish. However keep in mind thatwith the length you will need to update your sock drawer. I'm going to be buying more of these pants very soon, I can't recommend them highly enough!

very high waist
The pants were of very nice construction, however, the waist is very high. This was a problem for me as I don't have a real difference between my hips and my waist. Make sure when you measure for this item, you measure your WAIST size, and measure high...

Super Cute!!
This is a very attractive and well made riding skirt with great detail. I think it would actually work well for riding!! Pay attention to the measurements; they were accurate but that meant that I ordered a much bigger size than I usually wear. It fit perfectly. This skirt hits me at the ankles and I am 5' 8". Great with regular cowboy boots or my custom lace up boots. This item has a high waist. Have a lint roller at the ready since the brushed material picks up animal hair.

The search for suspender pants is over
I'll first admit, I do not regularly wear this era of clothing. The reason for this purchase was I was on the hunt for female-cut pants that had pre-attached buttons for suspenders. The cut is unique in my wardrobe and a first for me. Key notes if you've never worn similar pants: -these pants hit much higher on your leg that modern pants. I was worried at first that the pants themselves were too far up my waist until I paid attention to the photo on the site. Because of this, you have to be aware of shoe selections: my first wear had me in men's steel-toe boots that one could see my socks when I was walking. Standard shoe is now knee-high boots with these. -It's a slight learning curve to sit in. Although they are pants, they tend to act like a skirt and I found the legs bunching up to my knees. The "butt sweep" like one does in a long skirt will almost completely alleviate this. I had to default to ladylike sitting, which is a learning curve of itself. -This is twill. Twill has no stretch. NONE. I knew I would be wearing my modern-cut corsets under this, but found that the undergarment helps if any muffin-top may form. If you are not wearing a similar garment, perhaps an inch larger that your waist may be advised. This lack of give is also worth noting because you do have to tuck in shirts with these. -Everything on this is very well-made, and even the buttons are attached well. Because it is twill, it should iron well. Heavy enough fabric to block out...

Nice pants
I normally wear a size 10 but I ordered a size 14 in these pants given the measurements guide. I'm glad I ordered the larger size as it fits perfectly and if I had ordered my regular size 10, it would have been way to small. I like the buttons for attaching suspenders if desired and the large front pockets. Fabric is soft and comfortable.

I bought the brown suede looking riding pants for the winter for my girls and I and we loved those. Now I bought these for the spring/summer and the opinion is the same. They are very light weight and comfortable. Perfect for modestly and stylishly riding their horses during the warm months.

These are a lovely breezy pair of pants. I am yet to wash them so they are yet to shrink, but the quality is really good and they go really well with my steampunk outfit.

Sueded riding pants
This garmet was beautifully made out of quality fabric. Unfortunately the pair I received had a small flaw in the fabric in a visible area so I had to send them back. Fit: These riding pants would probably work best on someone 5'4" or taller. Also the waist is very fitted, no give, even though the garmet has lots of flowing fabric. I'm 5'1" weight 125lbs and the waist on the small was pretty snug ( my waist measures 30") Very disappointed they didn't work.

Absolutely, Gloriously, Perfect!
They fit is as if they were custom sewn for me and me alone. The pockets are fairly horizontal so they don't pooch out badly. The fabric is butter soft, and the rise exactly matches my waist to crotch ratio. They swirl nicely around my legs as I walk like a skirt, but since they are pants, my thighs don't have to be overly friendly. :) As I am not a small woman, my thighs do not always have a civil relationship with each other. I ordered the XL - I have a 40" waist and they measure exactly 39"... I'm okay with this. I WANT MORE!!! I can totally see what I am wearing this summer.

Excellent quality, but runs large!
The fabric for these sueded riding pants is lovely, and they are lined. The only initial disappointment I had when I received my first order was that the sizing was way off! I have a 31.5" waist and initially ordered a Large that was supposed to fit waists up to 32" but I was floating in them, they were enormous around the waist and not even wearing a belt would have helped. I returned them and ordered a Medium that was to fit waists up to 29" and they fit perfectly. So something appears to be a bit off in the measurement guidelines. I've noticed this to be true with sizing recommendations for blouses as well based on two purchases made. Aside from that these riding pants were a great find and I absolutely love them. The photo doesn't quite do them justice because I didn't think the fabric would be as high quality as it is. I would definitely recommend these riding pants if you're looking for an item like this, just be cautious about what size you order to avoid the hassle of having to ship it back to exchange it for another.

Outstanding Quality
This was my first purchase from Historical Emporium and the quality is outstanding! Everything arrives neatly pressed, in plastic bags and with very fast delivery. I will be wearing these and the other items I ordered as part of a barn costume party and picture day with everyone and our horses. I'm so excited to wear the ensemble and see the pictures. This site was a wonderful find, and I would highly recommend any item you are thinking about ordering. The fit and styles are exquisite and you will be very pleased with your purchase.

These riding pants are great, I have an American Quarter Horse and have used them to ride in, they are comfortable and perfect for this. The quality is very good and hard waring, only problem is they will get dirty quick using them this way so I will need another couple of pairs, might even have a blouse to complete the look. My stables are based on the Western theme and we have open days where we set the Dutch Ovens up over the camp fires, finding this Historical Emporium site will enable us to dress up to make it more authentic - expect more orders coming you way. One very satisfied customer.

Nice pants
These pants are full length which is very nice. The fit is a little different as they tend to give one a wedgy if you bend over. I ordered the Rust and Black classic riding pants and do not have that issue, so I believe it is just how this particular pair is made. Other than that, they are very comfortable.

Modest Riding Skirt
I really like this riding skirt. I had worn the kind with a panel in front that can be buttoned to look like a skirt or pants. This skirt is a lot lighter to wear. It goes down to about the ankles and looks nice with my cowboy boots. Easy to climb over gates when doing chores and getting on a horse. Lays nice when in the saddle and doesn't really billow out or ride up. I especially like that I can wear a belt with this. I can't say how it holds up over time as I haven't worn it much yet. I got one size bigger than I normally wear and it just fits. I would get another that is one size bigger for winter so that I would have room for wearing long underwear or sweatpants underneath. I would recommend this to any cowgirl who wants to feel or look modest and feminine.

suede riding skirt
The skirt was way too big. When I was ordering it I was told that they run small so even though I usually wear a small or 4 that the medium would probably fit best. The medium was at least 2 sizes too big. I have experienced other orders that the sizing was undependable.

Comfortable, stylish
This is my second pair of Classic Riding Pants and I love them. They fit well (use the sizing chart), drape beautifully, and I like the longer length as just about any style of shoe or boot looks great. The fabric is soft but sturdy. Does require ironing or quick touch up. I've worn these riding pants with several Historical Emporium blouses, off the rack blouses, and casual pull over shirts. AND, there are two deep pockets! Bonus!
