Texas-Style, Slip-on Chaps

I made these chaps in September so Sam could compete in the Taylor Ranch Rodeo. He already had a pair he uses when he rides that are longer and heavier, and didn't want to be running around the arena in his heavy clunckers. (I'll post some pictures of thoses later) His team members eventually dropped out on him so he only wore them for the wild-cow-riding event.

Now these pair are rough-out, if you can't tell. It makes it easier to slip on when the smooth is in the inside of the chaps against your pants...They also have a front and back buckle on them for better adjustment.


We put an external pocket on them. You can fit your whole fist in them or even a small pistol. Now the pocket is smooth out so it is double rough leather in the inside of the pocket, to make sure that nothing falls out too easy (plus I like the contrasting colors on the front).




The ring that we put on is to hold his piggin-strings on, cause you never know when you need to tie up something. The concho is an old coin. Theres one on both sides. It is the start of the leather strap. Now all of these extras are optional. Call for pricing on extras.






Heres the old-time tooling that I added. Tooling is also an extra add-on.
