I can't believe no one has mentioned them yet. PERRI'S! I've got 18-19 inch calves and wear their XL half chaps. They go up to 3XL. I own their zip-up brown suede ones for daily use and their black leather ones (used for schooling shows this year). They are very affordable and have held up great.

I have had my pair of Arete's for 3 years and they are still going strong. I have an 18.5" calf.

also, for large non-riding boots I use Plus Size Clothing - Shop Trendy Plus Size Women's Clothing at Simply Be
i love their stuff.

You're welcome! My original plan was to buy Arete's. Then they stopped selling their products. I was so happy when I found Perri's. It's great how large their sizes go.

I have trouble finding tall boots that fit properly as I have a 16" calf size. I bought a pair of Dublin boots and had them stretched by my shoemaker so they fit me. It's very frustrating when all the nice boots are made for people with tiny calf sizes! I am limited in my area for stores with equestrian apparel and its not always fun to return items bought online. I like my Dublin half chaps as they fit me well and are not too expensive. I wear mostly paddock boots for this reason.

Don't worry, you're not the only one! It means we have stronger and bigger calf muscles! I'm also 5'10" so finding X wide and Xtall is a challenge. I end up just buying suede and go thru a pair a year or so. They stretch nicely and there's not breaking in involved. And you can get a good pair for under $50.
