Shopping from the past: Hebden Cord equestrian breeks

Posted on: December 3rd, 2016 by Lesli Larson

From eBay, a great example of a refreshing, non-minimalist clothing design: wool twill riding breeches by Hebden Cord (the now defunct country clothier from Hebden Bridge, York). I love to see clothing that deploys buttons and flaps in lieu of zippers or shaping panels to facilitate fit and max adjustability. I’m wondering about the date of manufacturer for this style/model (are those waistband buttons for suspenders?). My only catalog copy is from 2001 and it features a much more contemporary looking pair of riding trousers made from era-predictable poly blend  with zip fly and velcro closures. If you can date these breeks, email me or tweet me over at @archcloth.
