Paintings from the 1760s onward document these Half-Length Spatterdashes. Sporting men, laborers, and soldiers alike wore these to protect their legs and to prevent stones and sticks from falling into one’s shoes. We make these in black or white linen with cotton canvas lining. Give us your ankle measurement and the circumference of your calf (while standing) 12” up from the floor. We will send the Spatterdashes that will offer you the best fit for your measurements. You will receive the Spatterdashes, fitting instructions, and enough black horn buttons to custom fit them to your legs. You will need to sew on the buttons. You will want to enlist a “willing assistant” to help you with measuring and fitting.
See our measurement guide for help with obtaining proper measurements.
