When you cross a premium equestrian and country retailer with a top international superstar polo family, what do you get?
The new G&G Traditional Training Breeches.
These gorgeous unisex breeches have been designed to withstand the rigours of polo-playing and make the perfect training breeches for the busy rider who demands and expects more from their riding wardrobe.
Created through an exciting partnership between equestrian and country retailer Glaze & Gordon and the UK’s leading superstar polo family, the Tomlinson’s, the new breeches share a story like no other.
A chance meeting and discussion about the lack of comfortable yet durable breeches on the market with England Team regular Mark Tomlinson set Glaze & Gordon Founder Becs Glaze on a mission to create the ultimate breeches!
“We knew that PC Racewear (who are renowned for their traditional hard-wearing jockey breeches) had the knowledge and the ability to produce a pair of resilient and functional breeches. We just needed a polo expert to help with the design process.” Explains Becs,
“Mark and the Tomlinsons were the ultimate partners for this project and were keen to get involved. Mark was committed to every step of the design process, from the breeches’ initial conception to the final design. The G&G Traditional Training Breeches are a collaborative effort between ourselves, PC Racewear, and showcase Mark’s knowledge and experience as an elite polo player.”
After 12 months of design, creation, testing and tweaking, the final design is a hybrid unisex style that offers the durability of denim with flattering styling and a luxurious silky lining for comfort in and out of the saddle.
A high waist with a wide comfort waistband, pleated front, roomy side pockets and elasticated panels with a neat popper closure at the waist offer function and comfort. The slightly voluminous upper leg styling allows for total freedom of movement in and out of the saddle, tapering to a spandex lower leg (a style synonymous with jockey wear), which helps keep them securely in place under your boots.
Rigorously tried, tested & loved by polo-playing pro’s including Mhairi Gould, Manager of the Beaufort Polo Club Polo School, Lisa Smith, a Beaufort Polo Club player and everyday busy equestrians, the breeches were put through their paces from initial design through to finished garment.
The G&G Traditional Training Breeches are available in navy with a full black seat. Sizes: XS – XXXXL (24 – 38 inch waist) RRP: £95
15% of the G&G Limited Edition Training Breeches revenue will be donated to the Great Western and Wiltshire Air Ambulance Services, Beaufort Polo Club’s charity of choice.
