What good is visiting a western town without learning how to look like a native? Although not everyone living here dresses in a western style everyday, there are definitely some important components you’ll want to include when putting together your own perfect look.
According to Paul Rerich, owner of Cave Creek Cowboy Company, “boots are in!”
Boots are designed to incorporate function, protection, and style. Heels, toes, the shaft and materials all vary in order to support different functions for different pairs of boots. For example, toes come in pointed, snip, blunt, square, round, and roper. Exotic skins such as caiman, elephant, ostrich, and shark are also widely used these days. These skins add a great deal of durability as well as style. Properly fit boots are good for your feet, very comfortable, and will provide a life time of use and enjoyment.
Hats also incorporate function and fashion. Felting is the process of creating the material for a felt hat. Felt hat prices and quality are determined by the materials in the hat. When selecting a hat, look for color and a shape that fits your look.
Rerich added, “Important items to finish off your Creeker look could also include a jacket or vest, tooled belt and buckle set or concho belt, a shirt with western yolk and snaps, and jeans.”
