Incidentally, I've got a pair of gaiters that look almost exactly like that. Swiss army surplus, easy to obtain in continental Europe, but hard to come by elsewhere.

Heh, you're right, mate! these are improved replicas of those swiss gaiters - same pattern, different type of leather plus gears. This design is truly magnificent - it fits most sizes and looks very cool.

Next step: make them larger! The design could be extended to knee length without major problems.

Well, I thought about that already, however there is some major problem with that - since craft is my main source of profit, I must think about affordable price for the item - and since making knee-long gaiters will take much more material and also more work time - the price will be higher, hence making gaiters like that less affordable... But I will surely make high gaiters for myself :)

Set google for "Portugese chaps", which should inspire you a bit. Knee high leather gaiters are part of traditional Portugese riding gear.
