What is the correct length for chinks?

Posted by

The correct length for your western chinks is simply a matter of personal taste.  We have made them nearly full length and also very short depending upon the coverage desired by the customer.

The one thing that we would recommend is that you select a chink length to where the starting point of the fringe is about 2" below the bottom of the knee cap.  The main thing is that you choose a length that fits your personal taste and leg coverage needs.

Our in-stock chinks come in a 32" length and a 29" length to accommodate taller and shorter customers.  If you would like help with making a choice, please call us at 208-785-8963.  We will help you through the process  of selecting the length and size that works best for your needs.
