If the hunter/jumper world were a monarchy, our king would undoubtedly be George Morris. Under his tutelage of hard work and dedication to the sport, I (like many!) have spent countless laps trotting around trying to ride in the way he would respect. Because of the legacy and history that is George Morris, I was excited to try his new line of equestrian clothing – the GHM Collection from Breeches.com.
The men’s and women’s collection offers breeches, show shirts, polos and hunt coats at affordable price points. With features like sock bottoms, ultragrip knee patches and a bamboo cotton fabric blend, I thought the Show Time Knee Patch Breeches were a great value at under $100.
Because this is a George Morris fashion line, there is no wild color or sparkling bling to be found. Instead, the clothes are offered in a conservative palette of navy, duck (hunter) green, rust and charcoal accents.
It’s a classic look, with classy details. I love the embroidered logo on the back belt loop of the breeches. Subtle, but a nice touch.
These kinds of classic designs convert well from the barn to the street. I paired my breeches with a wide belt, TPH Black tee and blazer for a look that would work well in any boardroom meeting or happy hour event. The fabric and fit of these clothes make them functional and comfortable for long days at the barn.
While these clothes might not give you a perfect automatic release, they will outfit you in a way that would earn George Morris’ approval. The GHM Collection is a blend of classic style and function at an extremely reasonable price point.
