    a pair of buckskins

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    "Did you ever see a pair of buckskins like those at Miss Pinkerton's?" continued he, following up his advantage.

    a pair of buckskins = breeches made of buckskin

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
