Hi Mr Witt what size leg are you . I just measured the inside leg on them and it’s 29/30 if thats any good 

Cheers Mark 

 

Mark Hi,

Cheers for that but if they're these and you say the waist is 36" (guessing that means the 34-38") it shows the inside leg as 32.5" which is way too big.

If you were down the road I'd say maybe they were worth at least trying but unfortunately you're not but thanks anyway.

Bit of an afterthought but why don't people like chaps as opposed to trousers??

Because times have moved on! 20 years ago chainsaw trousers were thick heavy things, the option to go for chaps which were a little lighter was a feasible option. Now chainsaw trousers are lighter, and quote wearable, which has made chaps a thing of the past. Probably worn more in the states than over here, and that was probably always the case anyways

The USA is also the land of strange folk who will wear a big heavy steel helmet and no eye protection whatsoever when felling a tree.

Think they're actually aloominum. They also wear great tall leather boots with spikes in the soles, called "caulks" I think.
