Thick and Tough
They were a succinct aesthetic top layer for my trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone NPS. I wore them horse back riding and hiking. Originally I was concerned as I was between sizes. Eventually I went with the larger size. I ordered them over a month earlier than I needed because I knew I'd have to have them hemmed. I'm 5'1 so about four inches had to come off the bottom before I could walk in them even in boots. I'm glad that I went with the larger size. It snow every other day there so I had room to tuck sweaters in. I got complements from rangers, civilians and family alike. I was impressed with how thick and functional they are. The material is like work jeans not stretchy like Mike Rowe work. Yet despite how tough they are they are super comfy.

Great Skirt
This convertible riding skirt is amazing! It looks great! The fabric is a nice weight and hangs well. The skirt is well-made with good, even stitching and the buttons are well attached. I purchased this riding skirt for an event and am confident that it will look historically accurate. Also the sizing runs true to size. I used the measurements on the size chart and it fits perfectly! If you are thinking about purchasing this riding skirt, do it! you won't be disappointed.

Riding Skirt
Nicely made with good material. I have had to sew back on a couple of buttons that were not secured. Sizing is a little different (I am standard size 10 in Australia) and I have had to have this taken IN so I would suggest double checking the sizing chart. Great service, website is easy to follow. My parcel arrived in good time but the postage was expensive for weight ratio. I would like to see more specials (of course) and perhaps review cost of postage ($50 is a lot for a skirt America to Australia).

Perfect fit, look
Definitely order by waist size. I'm a 28-inch waist, 39 inch hips, and ordered the size 6. I probably could have gotten a size 4 but the 6 will allow me to tuck in bulkier shirts. Heavy duty fabric, made very well.

Long, comfortable and true to size. I'm wearing these for cowboy action shooting, since some of our stages require mounting/dismounting/shooting from the saddle on a wooden horse.

My love is back!
This is the style of the second skirt that I had to give away due to my size. So I was over the moon when I saw this one. I ordered it and I was not disappointed. I am so happy to have both skirts back in my closet. Thank you H.E.

Speedy service and great quality
I purchased the riding skirt and love it. It is such great quality. The skirt does go up higher on the waist than I am use to but it is still comfortable.

Well designed, high quality
I had been looking for a long split skirt that would fit my taller (5'8") size and have a bit of Old West character and unique touches. I am more than impressed with the substantial weight of the fabric, the true to size fit, the buttons, and the length. I can't wait for cooler weather in fall and winter to arrive so I can start wearing this to work with my western boots!

Super comfy, look good!
I got plenty of compliments when I wore these. The waist feels good, and they are fun to wear. It is a little bulky between the legs when buttoned as a skirt, but that is not unexpected.

Convertible Skirt- Tan
I like it! Am actually using it to ride my horse, where it is not quite as user-friendly as I imagined it would be: the pant legs keep sliding up and have to be re-adjusted often. It does run a bit large in the waist as well. I'm 28 and the size 4 is not snug. The color is not pictured accurately either; the product is quite a lot nicer tan than on the pictures, where it looks more gray. The length is great on the ground, but again, on horseback you lose quite a bit of the length leaving most of your boot visible. But in spite of the negative sound of this review, I'm happy with this skirt. I would buy the black one as well if it weren't so expensive. But I guess I'll have to try to copy the pattern and make a black one. It is a great product overall, especially if you don't mind sewing the buttons on a bit better! :-)

Looks great, runs large
I would have given this riding skirt 5 stars, except for the sizing chart. I have a 31" waist, so I bought the 10 as advised by the chart. When I received the item, it was huge. The waistband measured 34". I exchanged it for a 6, which fits. Other than the inconvenience and costs of double shipping, I am very pleased. It is very soft and comfortable and easy to figure out. I like the versatility.

Convertible Riding Skirt
Runs large, order 1 size smaller than you normally wear (or, have a good seamstress for alterations). I ordered my normal size and had to have the 2 back seams taken in. Once the alterations were done, it's perfect. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that it should really have a simple set of instructions on how to convert from pants to skirt, it's a little confusing but finally figured it out.

Astride in Old West Style!
The brushed twill convertible riding skirt is my favourite for trail riding as well as mounted shooting. They are very comfortable, nice and long and rugged, yet feminine. They wash well too. More gals need to know about the split riding skirt!

Riding Skirt
I just love it. It looks very elegant yet it's supercomfy! I usually wear a size 8, but I got size 10 to be safe. A size 8 would have fit me just fine, but since I usually wear it with suspenders, I actually prefer the bigger size. I've worn it several times, and I've gotten compliments each time. I plan to buy another one in a different color.

Although I love the riding pant's, I had to have them nearly remade to fit me. I am only 5' 1" tall and these pants are made for very tall people. It was worth it to get them fitted. Everyone loved my outfit and could not believe I found this out fit. So your name was told to many people. I will surly shop with ya'll again. The quality of the material was great and very well made. I was the best dressed person there. Just keep in mind there are a lot of short people and see if you could make cloths for shorter people. I know I would be very happy and I am sure others will be too.

It arrived super promptly, and it was everything that I desired. I have gotten so many compliments, and I don't hesitate to share where I got them from! And I certainly won't hesitate to shop here again :)

Brushed twill riding skirt
Although the quality of this product was very good the sizing chart provided when ordering was so bad that i ordered this skirt TWICE and was disappointed both times. There was not time to order another skirt before our ride of the headless horseman which we do for the public to benefit the cancer society.

Seems heavy,have not tried riding in but wanted for wagon train trip in June. Worried it may be too warm. I will be on horse back but need to stay in period attire. Feel options are limited.

Great quality
Very well-made, high-quality garment. Versatile steampunk costume piece, well worth the money. Glad I read an earlier review about sizing running large - I ordered a size smaller than I originally thought and it's a perfect fit.

Cannot wait until I get the opportunity to wear this great garment! Now, to decide whether to make it pants or a skirt! Hmmm......

Great idea for a great pair of trousers…or…is it a skirt?! Very original, I got a lot of compliments. Be careful: Sizes run VERY generously for that item.

I love this convertible riding skirt. I only got the Black but I think I'm going to purchase the Brown as well. They are so comfy I want to wear them all the time.

Great fit and perfect design for retro and for...
This riding skirt is made by Scully with heavy weight material. The drape and fit make it VERY practical for riding as well as just wearing ric!for "western" events.The black color is a deep color, and the buttons are perfect for the fab

The fit on these is very large. I ordered what I thought might be snug - they were literally falling off. The stiffness of the fabric and the volume was too much for me as well.
