‘We Don’t Have Tack for That,’ Presented by ThinLine: Etsy Breeches FAIL Edition

We’ve checked out helmets and boots on Etsy — today we run a search for riding breeches.

Etsy, for the uninitiated, is a wonderland for uh, “unique,” items of apparel. And some of these vendors are definitely playing fast and loose with the term breeches. Let’s kick off the freak show with these Blue Equestrian Pants

You know who these breeches would look good on? NO ONE.

These Vintage English Riding Breeches are basically OK, but the rest of the outfit needs serious help. Imagine the looks you would get if you showed up at the barn in suspenders and a coon skin hat.

From the description of these G&G Riding Leggings: “Just like the horse riding pants you wore as a youngin’ in Finishing School, but with some SPANDEX ON YO’ AZZ!”

You’ve got to be kidding me.

And last but not least, for all you dudes out there, here’s something you won’t find in the SmartPak catalog: Latex Rubber Jodhpurs.

I’m not even going to try to top that. Microphone drop. The end.
