Modified knee breeches
I'm looking for something like a pair of knee breeches, but tier out somewhat like this. Essentially like those in the 18th/19th century, but more volume.



Inspiration includes









Dont laugh at the pictures, that's all I could find :p.Yes I'm quite serious

If all else fails I may have to try and make something myself...

Plus fours, awesome!

Found this: http://revampvintage.com/Merchant2/m...egory_Code=MTR

They're pretty Tintin though, not sure if thats what you're going for.

I guess you're really going to have to get them online, unless you spend years searching golf shops. Making them, or getting a tailor to make them, is probably the way to get exactly what you want.

Thanks for the links

Everytime I see them I laugh, but I still want them!

Nah, the ones I'm thinking of I haven't seen yet, so I'm not sure if someone has done them yet or not...

I might try and experiment with them in the upcoming holidays.

Well you can join the Black Eyed Peas in their 3 man campaign to make them cool again.

i think more volume was desired, and riding breeches are super tight.
