Romfh Sarafina Euro Seat Breeches Review

whitesand

Color: White Sand. Perfect for the hunter and equitation rings, or a professional look in your lessons.

You may have guessed by now that I love my Romfh Sarafina Euro Seat breeches, and that I have a few pairs. I even briefly wrote about them in a post about summer riding attire. Carey of Me Jump Pretty One Day recommended them to me, and I am so glad she did! Now, I’d like to give them their own well-deserved spotlight, as there are many reasons to love these breeches, and I think they have broad appeal across disciplines. I’m doing this post as a numbered list so I can stay organized and keep track of all the reasons these breeches are so fantastic …

1. Fit:
The fit of the Sarafina breeches is generous, as the material is very stretchy, yet doesn’t lose its shape, even after many wearings and washings. For comparison, I wear a 28R in Trophy Hunters, and these are less snug in the waist area for me, are longer in length, and don’t chafe anywhere. I could probably even squeeze into a 26R in these breeches, but I like beer and doughnuts, so I’m sticking with a 28R.

The fabric is also substantial enough to hold up to all-day wear around a barn and in the saddle, plus dust just brushes right off. The fabric seems to wick sweat a considerable amount, which is perfect for Texas year-round.

3. Details: So many details really bring a unique look to the Romfh Sarafina breeches, without going so overboard that they distract from the polished picture. The branding is subtle, the sock bottom provides comfort under tall boots, and the contoured waist eliminates any gaping at the back we have all experienced with various other brands.

4. Color choices: With traditional options such as Navy and Beige and brighter colors like Sea Glass and Orchid, there is a Sarafina color to suit everyone’s tastes, with new colors introduced seasonally. Spruce, a Fall 2016 color, is perfect for cooler weather and pairing with lightweight merino sweaters.

This color. I need it.

I caught via Instagram some of the Spring 2017 colors introduced at AETA, and there is a light blue that I want ASAP!

5. Two styles: Euro Seat and Full Seat, suitable for hunters, jumpers, eventers, and dressage queens everywhere!

Spruce up your wardrobe. Yeah, I did just do that.

6. Price: They retail at $169, but I see Sarafina Euro Seat breeches for as low as $152 around the web. For the quality, style, and functionality of these breeches, this price is an amazing deal to me. Comparable breeches are closer to, if not more than $200. Romfh Sarafina breeches are available at a number of retailers, so finding a pair for yourself will be easy.

  1. Great review! I’ve been eyeing these as a pair of show whites but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. The price point, if nothing else, gives them the edge over TS because I just can’t justify paying almost $200 for something that will get dirty. I’ll have to seriously consider Romfh!

  2. I have a pair of the kids breeches which look lovely but fit way different than the adults (surprise right.. I shouldn’t be so surprised). I mean not obnoxiously or unwearable so but it does make me wonder some of the design choices between adult and children’s breeches that companies tend to make. (now i’m just rambling sorry)

  3. Great review! I have been meaning to do one, and now I don’t have to!
    You got the spruce!! I’m debating on them, my current breeches (I only have 3 wearable paris right – not including tights- sad face) are in the blue/green family so I am thinking some plum or merlot would be nice to add. Sadly no Sarfinas in those colors, although they did a cranberry-ish color a couple years ago, but that was before I knew I loved them.
    I am also able to size down in them. I am 28R but I get them in 26L. A little long in the leg, but the rise hits me on the hips better and I don’t notice the extra material around my ankles ever.

  4. I want these breeches so badly, I’ve been looking at them for months. I always hear about how people prefer them to Tailoreds both material wise and price wise, but here in Canada they’re actually MORE expensive than Tailoreds :/ SIGH (for whatever reason, Tailoreds sell at around 229 in both the United states and Canada…?) I might just bite the bullet, though, even though I can’t try them on first. Thanks for including how stretchy they are, usually I can’t do up 26’s around my hips, and 28’s are usually baggy in my butt or baggy all around, so the 26 sounds like it might be perfect πŸ™‚

  5. I need to wear my Romfhs again because I don’t remember being super in love with them. I think they are the cranberry sarafinas that came out a few years ago. Gotta find them in my mountain of dirty laundry
