Buckskins are clothing, usually consisting of a jacket and leggings, made from buckskin, a soft sueded leather from the hide of deer or elk.

Buckskins are often trimmed with fringe (originally a functional detail, to make rain drip away from the body), and can be decorated with beads, embroidery, or quills.

Buckskins derive from deerskin clothing worn by Native Americans, and and were popular with mountain men and other frontiersmen for their warmth and durability.

Buckskin jackets, often dyed and elaborately detailed, are a staple of western wear and were a brief fad in the 1970s.
