    I am needing a pair of Chocolate smoothie chaps. I'm looking for either a great pair of new, used or custom chaps. I dont want to spend more than 500.00. I want the butter soft leather. So if you have a great brand or know of somebody who can make them let me know! Thanx

    Dave Thornbury does VERY nice chaps for the price. He's literally down the street from me. http://www.thornburychaps.com/contact/index.htm

    I have a couple pairs of Custom Classics that I LOVE -- VERY VERY nice.

    I have a pair of white ultrasuedes I'll check the tag on when I get home, I don't remember who made them.

    I've had multiple pairs of Berry Fit and Showtimes in the past -- IMHO, not worth the price.

    I just had my new purple ones made by RODs. It was under $450 and I got some Montana Sliversmith buckles too. You can make your own if you are really on a budget. I am making my daughter's only because she is so small and wants pink and that is very hard to come by.

    How do I find the Custom Classics? I'm not having much luck finding a webpage. Thanx

    My Mom makes all of my show clothes too. But, may I ask where you get the fringe for your daughters chaps? My Mom has the pattern for making them, but we have no idea where to purchase the fringe (Or even colored leather!).

    Where are you located?

    I had a lady make me a pair of custom chaps for only $200 (suuuper deal for such a nice pair of chaps that matches my teal horsemanship outfit).
