All Chinks are Custom Made per Your Specifications

Our chinks are made with your choice of color in glove soft cow hide. The glove soft hide is very soft yet strong. We prefer glove soft because it is comfortable and form fitting. Some hides may have minor blemishes such as brands or barb wire scratches that add a uniqueness and character.

Base Price Chinks Include:

  • Your Choice of 2 straps that buckle around the leg with 1/2" roller buckles -or- 2 straps with Clips and D rings that fasten arround the leg.
  • Fully stamped chink tops (yokes) and leg plates. Your choice of stamping several choices available. See stamping samples below
  • These chinks will fasten around the waste with a buckle belt on the back. This belt is lined with matching color soft chap leather and sewn. A roller buckle placed on the left side. (click here for a picture)
  • The Front is fastened with a tie string (thin leather thong) that runs through heavy duty grommets. (You may upgrade to a small buckle belt see below).
  • Floral Chicago screws on the leg plates. (we have have 3 choices of concho add-ons)
  • 7" to 9" fringe.

Xtra Large or Oversize Orders will be subject to an Upcharge

Our chinks are very functional and stylish. Since we make these here in our shop possibilities are endless, contact us if you have a special request. Please Read below for a listing of options and further description. Several examples of our work below.

We believe that fringe should extend to just short of the top of your boot, we use the out-seam (length) measurement to achieve this. If you would like your fringe to fall shorter on your leg please provide us with a shorter out-seam measurement.
Tooling/Stamping & Strap Leather
Only the best is used on the tooled belt tops, leg plates and back belts. Herman Oak, 9/10-10/11 oz. Herman Oak is the #1 Choice for leather crafters around the world and works great for us.
Chap Leather
For warmer climates most prefer the lighter weight glove soft hide. Weight may vary between 3.5 to 4.5oz. For those in colder climates we can get heavier weighted leather with the same glovey feel, this leather falls in the 5 - 6oz. weight range. Please Specify Below.
Generally we build most of our chinks in traditional colors, such as Butter/Tan, Chocolate (Dark Brown), Cream, Tobacco (Brown/Clay). Click Here For Color Samples. Due to the hide market color availability may vary and is subject to change.  We're also happy to send you samples of colors we currently have available. Although; a wide variety of other colors are also available upon request; these colors may require an additional charge. Please Specify Below.

How to Measure:

Note: Please take the time to have someone measure you. We often see errors when one tries to measure him/herself. Use a cloth or tailors measuring tape if possible.

Waist Measurement:
Diameter of the waist where you normally wear your chaps/chinks. Measure over your jeans or whatever you normally wear under your chinks/chaps.

From the bottom of the crotch to where you took the waist measurement.

Upper Thigh:
Diameter around the thigh just below the crotch.

Mid Thigh:
Diameter around the thigh between the knee and crotch.

This measurement is used to determine the overall length of your Chinks/Armitas. From the top the top belt to the end of the fringe (where the fringe stops). We think on Chinks or Armitas the fringe should stop about 3-4 inches above the toe of your boot, some people prefer them long some shorter this is entirely up to you.

Waist to Knee:
This measurement helps us to ensure that there is plenty of leather coverage below the knee before the fringe cut line starts. For this measurement please measure from where you took the "Waist" measurement down the front of your leg to the middle of you knee cap.

From the bottom of the crotch to just above the top of the foot. This measurement help us determine if all the above measurements given are accurate.

What size jeans do you wear?:
Please provide the waist and inseam size of the jeans you normally ride in. (these numbers will almost always be smaller than your actual waist and length measurements) This also helps us determine if all the above measurements given are accurate.
