Where to get true leather chamois shortsKurt H

Does anyone know where to find shorts (preferably bibs) with a true leather chamois. I'm currently riding mostly Performance Elite bibs, based on suggestions from others on the board. They're nice, but my favorite shorts are 2000 Olympic leftovers I picked up at Performance Bike with a huge leather chamois. I tend to get a little irritated, even with chamois butt'r, by the seam where the performance elite bibs transition from the thick pad to the soft outer edge stuff. The one piece leather pad does not offer this irritation, and just feels better. I'm hoping this group of old school heathens can help!
