I've reviewed the Tropical Rider breeches before -- they are among my favorite manufacturers. For a long time I've yearned for one of their colors -- merlot -- thinking it would be a burgundy-color. Well, during their last sale I splurged on the new color with deerskin extended patch breeches, just about $100 with shipping. The breeches came, and while they are not quite the color I expected, I LOVE the color. They are not pink, not magenta, and they are not burgundy, but they are a super-saturated dark rose color. Big thumbs up! BTW, they now make their waistband with a new "stiffer" elastic that holds up really well and does not roll.
