I am struggling to find trousers to wear with knee high boots for a masquerade ball. Now I've googled for pictures and they all show quite tight fitting trousers which look like a plain pair of breeches. However if you search for breeches you get riding ones. Did everyone wear riding breeches (would make sense, have the horse parked up outside etc... ) or is there another type? I didn't really want to have the patches as they would be visible, but a non-patched pair do not seem to exist.
Anyone work in costume, history, or just know? Even better, where I could get a pair in black?
Every pair has patches
