Caitlyn breeches - Where it all begun
We would go so far and say that Caitlyn breeches is actually the reason to why Aisling Equestrian exists.
The story behind
It was when one of the two founders, Charlotte, came back to the saddle after a long break that she discovered how difficult it was to find riding clothes she really loved. She spent way too much buying beautiful vintage riding clothes from high end brands. But the fabrics didn't have any stretch and they were not possible to wash, only dry-clean. And Sweden is a cold, snowy and very muddy place to live during winter! Then the idea came - what if you could create stunning pieces similar to this but in smart and flexible high tech fabrics?
Caitlyn knee patch riding breeches
We were looking to combine a more masculine and classic silhouette with a feminine twist. The breeches should be flattering, with a high waist and a relaxed fit. The fabric was very important - we aimed for the look and feel of a classic woven fabric but with the 4-way stretch and high durability that riding wear requirers. The suede patches must be of highest quality and keep its softness wash after wash. Almost a year was spent together with a pattern maker to create what we thought was the PERFECT PAIR OF BREECHES! There were many fittings and trips to international fabric fairs but finally Caitlyn was born. It is still our favourite item and a core product in the assortment.
