My Turn to Wear LeMieux - PACE BREECHES review


It is often said that Oscar has a better wardrobe than I do, and I certainly spend more money on his. That's for sure! Now its time to equal things out a little because LeMieux have launched a page on their website dedicated to us as riders, making it our turn to wear LeMieux

LeMieux have launched a range of breeches; Pace, Bascule and Engage. The Pace being rather appropriately named as the pair I have put through exactly that...

  • Colour...available in beige, burgundy and indigo. I am wearing the beautifully vibrant burgundy with dashes of navy blue 
  • Fabric...made from a dynamic micro-nylon spandex material the breeches stretch four ways and provide a smooth, comfortable and adaptable fit. I first wore them on the hottest day of 2018 (since 1940 might I add) and found them incredibly comfortable.
  • Sizing...the fantastic fabric is a credit to the fit being 100% true to size. I wear a size 10 and the breeches are available in sizes; 6 - 16.
  • Shape...we've all got a preferred brand of breeches, usually because of the way they fit, making them comfortable. The LeMieux Pace Breeches are designed to support our core tummy muscles for a slimmer, sleeker profile and to maximise comfort in the saddle. They come up to a nice mid-rise height, with a little extra stretch where it matters to allow for minor variations in hip and waist shapes. 
  • LeMieux X-Grip...the silicone design on the knee patch provides security whilst in the saddle. The patches are shaped to reduce bulk and lay neatly on the inside of the leg. Allowing full movement in the knee without the friction that some incorrectly placed silicone knee patches can cause. Invisible to the rider, but certainly there for when you need it most!
  • Ankle...made from an anatomic lycra sleeve,  in contrasting navy on my burgundy breeches. Meaning zero bulk and total comfort under long riding boots and half-chaps. Another plus in this hot weather. 
  • Style...where do I start? Not only are they beautiful to wear, they're beautiful to look at too. From the pleated front pockets to the LeMieux branded burgundy buttons...they are classic LeMieux with meticulous attention to detail.




I felt confident and comfortable whilst wearing them in the saddle and they have clearly been designed with the rider in mind. The Pace Breeches will perform high enough at competition level, and equally well as all-round everyday riding breeches and cost £74.95.

I can't wait to see more from the LeMieux Rider Wear Collection.
