Chaps vs. Chinks

Chaps: Show and Shotgun chaps have straight full length legs. They typically have fringe down the leg and can fasten at the back with either a single concho, double conchos or a buckle back. All are connected at the front with a buckle set.

Chinks: Are similar to chaps but are shorter, usually just below the knee but above the ankle. The fringe on chinks is usually longer, more prominent and can be double fringe or even twisted fringe. They are fastened around the top thigh by either buckles or snaps. They have a smaller yoke with a belt across the back. There are several ways to connect them with conchos, buckles or even lacing. Front buckle sets are used to fasten at the waist. Chinks will often sit below the belt vs. over the belt.
