Whether driving a herd of ornery steers or lifting a stray calf out of a patch of thorny green briars, riding hard over rough and ragged ground, or shouldering through a storm with just a slicker and a Stetson to turn the rain, the cowboy works hard and looks good doing it.
And hey, the downtime versions of that same working gear look fine as cream gravy on a worn-smooth dance floor in the Texas Panhandle. Hankering for that masculine, outdoorsy, do-it-all-and-come-back-for-more look? Ask a cowboy.
Or better yet, ask a cowgirl. First off, notice that cowboy boots have enough backbone to stay on with no strings attached. Toes range from squared off to extra pointy. But not every boot is right for every would-be cowhand. If you buy a new pair of boots, you want to get them dirty and scuffed right away. And a night out with your honey doing the boot scoot boogie requires—guess what—boots.
And remember to check where the hip pockets ride; some are so low on your hindquarters, going horseback with a wallet in there will leave you feeling like you squatted on your spurs. And no high waters, please. Never tuck them in your boots unless you want to look like a sheep in a herd of goats. A belt is an absolute requirement. It should be leather, hopefully hand-tooled with coils, curlicues, rosettes, longhorn cattle and artful renderings of wildflowers of the Texas range.
Where you get that buckle is, well, about as unsettled as a jackrabbit in a horse stampede.
Not everybody can win their buckle in a rodeo. Shirts can be pretty simple: cotton, button-down, long sleeve. Plain white can work, as can plaid. Cotton also breathes when it gets moist—important on the range or the dance floor. A good hat shop will carry any of styles and will hand-mold your favorite crease pattern—the cattleman, Salem, tycoon, cutter, telescope, diamond, horseshoe—into the crown and the brim. Real cowboys usually wear straw in warm weather, and a felt hat—beaver or rabbit blends are best—in the cold or for formal occasions.
The original cowboy hat was meant to stand up to the elements. But along the way people realized it also looks great. A guy in a cowboy hat—and the rest of the cowboy gear—just looks ready for the howling wind, the drenching rain and the baking sun of the wild Texas prairie.
So what? Think anybody tried to knock his cowboy hat off? Not more than once. Plus—and maybe most important—chicks dig it!
