knickers: can you recommend a pair?

Can anyone recommend a pair of Knicker like the Chrome brand type, but at a more economical price? I had been contemplating getting some knicker tights, mainly because many say they are adequate for riding in the rain, but I don't think ready to do the tights things, especially after hearing the hairy legs and tights don't go together very well. So can you point me in the right direction?

You should check out the SS/FG forum. There are like eleventy-billion threads on this. Other than that, grab some army surplus pants and cut 'em off. Cheap + durable...

I buy pants at the local thrift shop and cut them off. Takes 30 minutes tops including sewing them back up. I prefer the wool dress slacks or uniform pants when I can find them. Most I ever pay is $5.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

Thrift store cargos + scissors + crude sewing technique = new knickers.
