13 looks great.

I'm not sure about the studs. If you wear chinks in bad weather you need to waterproof them, Meaning rubbing in some wax or conditioners. The smoother the leather the easier it is to rub in the waxes. The more ornate the chinks, the more you have to work to clean up the excess waxes.

But they are pretty

I would be laughed off the range in your neck of the woods.

Who cares. Wear them anyway. Chicks are hot in chaps.


Start at 2:15 for the real show.

I second this. They pop off pretty fast.
If you rope any, bypass the conchos on the guard, roping ruins them.
