quality hand-made leather chaps and
accessories from The Last Best West
Leather is an important material to cowboys
Leather Chaps – Leather wears hard, is like a second skin, and early cowboys soon learned how to work leather to make hardy leather garments to do their jobs better, protect their clothes and make their lives easier. The leather we use for our custom chaps and leather accessories is top quality, and will stand the test of time.
Chaps were an important innovation, allowing the cowboys to protect their pants and boots when riding through brush, or when a rope slammed against their leg from a misbehaving steer at the other end. Chaps will also keep your legs warm and help keep you dry on foul weather days.
Our quality hand made hats and leather are made to last and our chaps are no exception. Researched and designed by The Last Best West from archival photos, these chaps will give you the wear, look and protection you want and need. And you will look smart doing it. Order your pair today.

Step in Shotgun Chaps
This style of chap with the 2 front pockets was likely the most common design worn by working cowboys of the 19th century.
The step in design has a leather gusset down the back of the leg that you step thru to put the chaps on. Working Cowboys from the 1880s; like Charley from Open Range lived in their chaps.
