Armitas (meaning little armor) were the leggins’ of the vaquero. Originally made of deer or elk hide, these are a stylistic homage to the early Armitas. We prefer to make these with glove soft cow hide. We can make them fixed leg (step in) or with the more common straps and buckles, or clips. They feature extra long fringe, a wrap and tie belt or more popular buckle belt with fringed waist flap. These Armitas are very comfortable and functional.
All Armitas are made to order per your specifications. Please measure carefully. We take your measurements and build you a unique pair of Armitas.
We believe that fringe should extend to just short of the top of your boot, we use the out-seam 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.
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.
Traditional Base Price-(No Hardware).
The traditional style will have step in legs (fixed leg, put em’ on like a pair of jeans) with a wrap and tie waist belt, this belt is tied in the front. The belt is made of thin but strong leather as to not make the knot in front bulky. The knot is hidden under the front fringe apron.
Xtra Large or Oversize Orders will be subject to an Upcharge

- Waist Belt Option-For those of you who don’t want the wrap and tie waist belt, we provide a rear buckle type belt. This belt is 1-1/4″ wide with the buckle on the left side. Some folks prefer this because they can run the belt through the center/rear belt loop on their jeans.
- Leg Strap Option-For those of you who don’t care for the ‘step-in’ style legs we can provide adjustable straps and clips. D rings are positioned on the outside thigh while adjustable straps, (2 per leg) come around the leg with the common chink quick clips.
Pocket-You may add a flap style pocket please specify which leg.
- Scalloped Leg Plate- This is a signature look of our Armitas. Rather than using chap leather for the leg plate we use Tooling & Strap leather in a classy scalloped design and with boarder stamp, and matching border stamped belt. Scalloped Leg Plate Option
The very popular two tone fringe, sewn on fringe, punched and sewn fringe line boarder, as well as a rope patch also available, please contact us for pricing.
