Thigh-Length Gaiters in Black


The thigh-length gaiters were worn for extra leg protection by sporting men, laborers, and the military from the early 18th century into the 19th century. Half-length spatterdashes were preferred over these by the time of the American Revolutionary War.

We make these in black linen with black canvas lining. Choose size:

Small       Thigh 15-16 1/2"     Calf 13"-15"

Medium   Thigh 17-18 1/2"     Calf 15 1/2"-16 1/2"

Large       Thigh 19-22"           Calf 17"-19 1/2"

XL            Thigh 22 1/2-25"     Calf 20-22 1/2"

You will receive the gaiters, fitting instruction, and enough black horn buttons to custom fit them to your legs. You will need to sew on the buttons. You will want to enlist a “willing assistant” to help you with measuring and fitting.
