Vaquero Armitas
Vaquero Armitas
Made to emulate the Armitas the Vaqueros wore. These Armitas are made out of light weight glovey cowhide. A single ply wrap and tie waist belt. Very short cut fringe, on the legs and a short fold over fringe apron Complete with the traditional rolled buttons that come through the side of the leg for leg closure.

We've tried to make this pattern as true to the original Armitas as possible. The only big difference is, these aren't made out of deer or elk hide.

Generally this style of Armitas was shorter that the Chinks or Armitas that we where today. We believe this was due to the fact they were originally made out of deer or elk hides which were limited in size. However in present day we have several options in cowhide available to us, no longer limiting the length or amount of coverage around the leg. As far as length is concerned please keep in mind that this style features very short fringe so adjust your length accordingly.
Chap Leather
These Armitas feature very light weight glovey cowhide generally in the 3.5 to 4 ounce range.
We prefer to keep this style in a traditional color such as Tan. However colors such as Chocolate (Dark Brown), Cream, Tobacco (Brown), may also be available. Although; a wide variety of other colors are also available upon request; these colors may require an additional charge.

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.

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.
