Stretch Denim Knee Patch Breech



Enjoy denim breeches that fit like athletic activewear—they’re infused with water-absorbing fibers to pull sweat from the skin and release it into the air. A contoured waistband has a lower fit on the front and high rise in the back to ensure your pants won’t sag. Lightweight knee patches are flexible and never stiff. $109.00; kerrits.com

Audrey Jeans

These jeans are a beautiful wash composed of a blend of cotton, polyester and elastane. Kimes only uses ring-spun denim, which has a greater tear strength in the fabric form compared to other brands. They are made with 11.5-oz. denim, which puts them in the midweight category. The higher the number, the stiffer and stronger the denim is.
