Why We Love This

Piper Classic style plus a flattering mid-rise cut? Yes, please! 

Piper Classic Breeches bring you everything you love about Piper breeches with a more traditional twist. They feature a classic side zip design with more conservative colors and styling, including no back pockets and tonal suede details on the back belt loops and front pockets for just the right amount of Piper fun. Additionally, they have a comfortable mid-rise cut with figure-flattering, 1.5” contoured waistband that eliminates gapping. These breeches also have Euro seat styling and knee patches made out of Clarino™, a synthetic, suede-like material that offers excellent grip, stretch, and durability.

Like all Piper breeches, you’ll feel as good as you look in the comfortable, flattering, four-way stretch fabric that moves with you in the saddle. Because we know that bunched breeches and bulky closures under boots can be super annoying, we’ve included an ergonomic elastic sock bottom that provides a streamlined, comfortable fit. Finally, these breeches are as easy to care for as they are to wear – just throw them in the wash and hang to dry. Some things are classics for a reason, and these Piper breeches know how to balance fun and functional for a design that will never go out of style. The only question is what color (or colors!) will you pick?

Piper Classic Mid-Rise Side Zip Breeches by Smartpak - Knee Patch is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed These used to be my go-to breeches for everyday use. During the last sale, I ordered multiple pairs to replace ones that were finally worn out. Unfortunately, the cut is no longer the same - they run smaller now, the waist is more of a high rise than mid, and the waistband is narrower - it is maybe an inch wide. For comparison sake, right before the sale I replaced a pair of classic piper tan patch breeches. I'm happy those are the same, but in these photos the navy pair are the tan patch, and the tan pair are the classic breeches in the same size. I suppose I'll order more of the tan patch, which is unfortunate as I find those wore out and had holes more quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Just got my first pair in Navy and I love them. Nice material and styling, suede knee patch is soft, great snug fit with no gaps in the waist. The waist comes up nice and high. Plan to buy more. If they turn out to be as durable as they seem I will be really impressed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don’t love them, material and fit are just ok. I actually don’t love these. Really thought I would. The fit is a bit tight, so they definitely run small. The material is not going to keep you cool in the summer or warm in the winter and it’s pretty form-tight/clingy so it does nothing to hide even the bumps from the pocket or even the smallest bump from a tucked in shirt. For the price, you could get tons of other better breeches.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised I bought these recently because everyone claims how comfortable they are and true to size. This is not true. They run small and whatever size you get, the waistband digs into your skin. The “high waist” is barely a mid waist. Spend the money on better quality brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Fits great, fun color. I’m a big and tall girl and these a very flattering with good fabric made for Florida weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breeches! These breeches (in the navy) are so well made...I prefer a side zip as having to wear a belt (which this style does offer) add bulk to my waistline and is uncomfortable. These side zip are snug enough to stay in place and very sleek in style. Surpising the material is thicker than I expected but very durable. Could be a bit heavy in the summer but will see on that. Knee patches are very nice and the back has a stitching design that is very classy. For the price I believe these are very, very nice!! May get a second pair! As for fit, I bought a 28L to be sure that they stay up and in place and are long enough to not ride up my leg!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look great My daughter likes them a lot. They fit well and seem to be durable. Well made. Good product. Would order again. Company also did a great job with shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!! I love these side-zip breeches and own them in several colors. I just bought them in grey, and the fit is PERFECT (true to size). I actually think they fit better than some of my older pairs, and the fabric seems slightly different, too - in a good way! Overall, I am really pleased with these and will likely order more. For me, the side-zip is just so much more tummy-flattering than front-zip styles!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I WANT to love these I love the fit, the fabric, the side zip. But I’ve had so many issues. I sent one pair back from the seam splitting after one wear. Now a second pair has a hole right where the seat seams meet. It’s literally just the stitching coming loose. The breeches for just fine. It’s not like I’m buying too small or trying to squeeze into them. They fit great and I need a belt to hold the waist in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these 3 times I’ve been wearing these britches for the last 5 years- in navy, black and now grey. They hold up well and are very comfortable.
