Chausses, Wool look, pair [BSD-H02]
One of my very first purchases from HE way back in November, 2013, was a pair of these chausses. (a Christmas gift for my bf)
They're in a lovely washable black & brown herringbone weave.
They've been worn to numerous SCA events in the past 3 years, and looking at them in my hands right now, not a single seam has given way, not a single stitch out of place. The seams that take the hardest stress on the inner thigh are reinforced, and they just hold up beautifully.
They've been thrown in the washing machine, and air dried, and never an issue!
