I'm looking for a new set of riding pants - I've kinda outgrown my old ones. I'd love to have a pair of the real thing, Torsten Hallman goatskins from Vintage Iron, but at $500 it's gonna be a while before I can get my CFO to approve the acquisition... I figure it's gonna have to be some modern textile pants, but I'd rather not have some of these multi-patterned heavily logo'ed pants that are so common. I'd prefer something that's closer to vintage styling. What are you vintage guys wearing - any suggestions?

$550? Wow, I got mine for X-mas back in '71 so I don't know how much they were, but I'm guessing considerably less.

My wife calls you guys the Yahoos.

yeah man, actually $499.95. Santa must have been getting a good deal on 'em back then - I got a pair for Christmas also, but I'm figuring it was probably '74 -



I still had them up until about 10 years ago - they were kinda stiff, moldy, & smelly from being stuffed in a duffel bag in the garage since the last time I used them.

You got the upgraded ones with the knee inserts. Mine had the quilted knees. Not the best pic of them and please ignore the safety glasses.

I have a pair of mint condition Jofama leathers from 1977. They are the red with blue side stripe. Could I get $500 for them?

man, for the real thing, I would think so - it could be a matter of connecting with the right buyer. If it was me, I wouldn't part with them at all, but I certainly wouldn't take less than the current price for comparable leathers -

Didn't Full Bore make leathers than matched their boots, black with the red and blue stripes? If so, I have my original pair from '71 in pretty darn good shape. Complete with a "Saddleback" patch on one thigh and an "Indian" patch on the other.

Bates can custom make you a pair. Not sure of the price though.

a couple of guys over on the Maico group recommended Moose, and good prices from MAW - right now, that's looking to be about the best option -
