I’ve spent the last few days fervently hunting for tan leather chaps to complete my XXXmas costume.

The chaps I found were all black leather, super long, unflattering…and I couldn’t get them over my thighs. The largest chaps would only fit 28" thighs, six inches too small for mine.

I could get custom chaps made, but they started at $300, were only in black leather, and wouldn’t be ready in time for the party.

Thankfully, my step mom (she raises horses) had these chaps at her house when I went over for Thanksgiving.

THEY ARE PERFECT. Not super long, open-back (so they fit my fat legs), tan leather, and they’re gorgeous. Lots of beautiful detailing.

She asked me to break them in at the party. I intend to do just that.
