Chaps normally come in standard “small”, “medium”, “large” or “extra large” sizes because they have either elastic or ties at the center back and a “belt” type closing in the front.
The unfortunate part of this scenario is that chaps really need to be “sized” according to the wearer’s “thigh” measurement. We have seen cases where a plus size man has bought the largest size available, and while the waist could be extended with the ties and “extenders”, the thigh area of the chaps were so tight that they were very uncomfortable and actually felt as if they were cutting off the circulation to the legs.
The answer to the “size” dilemma is to make your own custom fitted chaps according to the size that YOU are, not according to a “standard” set of measurements. These instructions will teach you, step by step, how to make the chaps pattern according to your own personal measurements, and will also show you how to use a standard commercial pants pattern and alter it to YOUR measurements, so you can make the chaps from that altered commercial pattern.
