Hi everybody,

I'm new here, and have been looking for a forum to ask this question.

I've been wanting a fringe pants for a quite a while. I finally found a pair on ebay, with deerskin leather fullseat, 7" fringe. How much should I expect to pay for something like this? I've checked out other websites, but haven't found anything quite like this to know.

Please help, I just don't want to get snookered[Wink]
Anyone else here wear fringe pants?[:O][:O]
[:I]I ain't sayin'.[:I]

But anyway, are you talking about chaps, or chinks, or just pants with fringe?
Chaps or chinks could go for $300-$400 or more depending on what quality you get.
What in the heck are chinks?[confused2

Chinks are knee-length chaps.
Oh. Ok, I'm going to close my eyes and hold my breath and go ahead and throw my ignorance out for all to see. [baghead][Big Grin]What do you wear short chaps for? Go ahead and laugh everybody, get it out of your system. I can take it.[Big Grin] Besides... I can't hear ya! In all seriousness, I really have never heard of them before and I don't have a clue as to what they're used for.
No, they're not chaps. It's some type of blue material called promax, and they have a deerskin leather full seat. The fringe runs down the side of the leg...description says it's offset so you don't sit on them. They're made by Aanstadt Das, whoever that is. [confused2 Anyway,they look really nice![clap][clap]

I believe chinks are used when brush-popping cows out of the brush. The chinks protect your legs from the brush and they meet with knee high boots which protect your legs from the knee down.
That makes sense. Regular chaps wouldn't offer enough protection.

This forum is so neat. It offers so much information. If one person doesn't have an answer, someone else will. You will always find the answer to your question.
Chinks are regularly worn in some areas...you almost never see full-length chaps worn on Montana ranches, for example, only chinks & buckaroo boots. Chinks are usually made of a heavier leather than chaps.

I've never seen riding pants with a fringe on them. You might start a new trend, LOL!

Hi EZ,

I think they're neat, but I don't know about being a trendsetter[Big Grin] I think my kids would beg to differ[Wink]

Anyway, here's the link. Check it out and tell me what you think.
