from http://tywkiwdbi.blogspot.com/2010/10/necropants-explained.html (link has a pic somewhat nsfw):

If you want to make your own necropants (literally; nábrók) you have to get permission from a living man to use his skin after he's dead.

Nábrókarstafur

After he has been buried you must dig up his body and flay the skin of the corpse in one piece from the waist down. As soon as you step into the pants they will stick to your own skin. A coin must be stolen from a poor widow and placed in the scrotum along with the magical sign, nábrókarstafur, written on a piece of paper. Consequently the coin will draw money into the scrotum so it will never be empty, as long as the original coin is not removed[1]. To ensure salvation the owner has to convince someone else to overtake the pants and step into each leg as soon as he gets out of it. The necropants will thus keep the money-gathering nature for generations.


So, yeah. Necropants.

[1] This seems like it might be some kind of rules-lawyering workaround, since if you don't remove the original coin, there's always a coin in it.
