Original German gaiters (Gamaschen). It must be remembered that the color of the material could be gray-yellow, gray-green or green, it did not matter. However, early gaiters were rather saturated green. Pictures from fjm44.com

How to choose the size?

You need to put on shoes, trousers and measure the circumference of the leg right above the boot (on top of clothes!). For measurement, a flexible meter or belt (rope) is suitable, which must be tightened as tight as you are going to wear gaiters. Gaiters are regulated by leather straps with just 3 holes, so it is very important that the resulting circumference hits one of the spaces suggested in the table. Otherwise, the gaiters will be small or, even worse, large (they will hang out).

We have the only size of the gaiters for the leg circumference 29-32.5 cm (or size II — average).
