Redneck hide is fantastic for a number of things I hear.

You heard correct. Wearing a redneck hide and a pair of snakeskin boots can bring opportunities in the starring role in some midget porn. I own both.

Is that yet another amazing display of ignorance? 'A hide' cannot be turned into a chamois.
The chamois is a member of the subfamily caprinae of the family bovidae and are native to Europe.

The word chamois to also mean a soft leather cleaning cloth made from other types of hide is now in common use. see various dictionaries not to mention wikipedia

Pronounced shammy

You owe @s.mundi an apology

He said 'turn into a chamois' not a 'chamois leather'.

The use of "chamois" on its own to mean a cleaning cloth made of skin is generally accepted.

Collins Dictionary: "Chamois": a soft pliant leather originally made from the skin of the animal. Also called "chamois leather".

Merriam-Webster has "chamois" without adding "leather" after.

Ditto OED, though it says "more fully chamois leather"

Voilà le chamois.

There's also the town of Chamonix, just at the foot of the Mont-Blanc.

Lots of rude or inflammatory stuff in this thread so have deleted those posts and a few others that were quoting them or made no sense with the original ones gone.

Lets hope we can all be nice now, or if not ignore the people you don't like.
