For Cowboys, They're Rather Stylish Chaps

The Best Dressed Blokes Ever Seen On Horseback

Two adventurers have successfully completed a charity trek from Hong Kong to London on horseback - wearing tuxedos. Briton Heath Buck and American Doug Campbell came up with the idea after they met in a Hong Kong bar. They saw 19 countries on their four-month, 6000-mile trip through China, Vietnam, Tibet, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Kazakhstan, then across Europe. Their tuxedos were specially made from resilient fabrics in Bangkok, Thailand. The money they raised along the way went on local causes.

the SAME horses for the whole trip? I never thought about the logistics of crossing customs on a horse, either.

And your timestamp says 4:35 in the morning. What are ya, crazy?

Like Brian, I worry about the horses. ;-)
I hope they wore warm underwear under their tuxedos.

This reminds me not of Friar Tux, but of Tux the penguin, official mascot of the free operating system Linux.

It's an impressive feet no matter what, why tuxedos?!

Hope it was winter when they were passing thru India, otherwise they would be hot.
