We have so much fun with women’s western fashion, but we also need to take a look at what’s going on with men’s fashion too!
We are still seeing all the basics, such as plaids, stripes, and solids in shirts, but what I’ve been seeing more of the last couple of years are bold-colored checks, bright colors, serape, aztec’s, paisleys, and even florals in men’s shirts. The 70s retro look is one of my favorites. What fun to have so much variety! You can look to Wrangler, Stetson, Roper, Scully, Tin Haul, and Rockmount for some great new looks. T-shirts are still a mainstay for every guy.
The same companies mentioned above will have t-shirts. We also love those fun patriotic- and cowboy-style sayings and pics on tees, such as those made by Huey, Howitzer, and Dale Brisby’s Rodeo Time.
When it comes to jeans, there are so many now. There are still the classics from Wrangler, but they have expanded to several styles. Wrangler retros are some of our favorites! Fun and great-fitting styles from Ariat, Stetson, Kimes Ranch, Tin Haul, and Cinch have brought a whole new look to the traditional jeans for men.
And what about mens jackets? There are, again, many choices. Look to Wrangler, Schaefer, and Carhart for your durable everyday work jacket, but they and many others have some great-looking jackets in leather and wool, with colors and patterns in plaids and aztecs or serape colors for some variety and style. I love Scully, Outback Tading, and Pendleton for these looks. One thing to mention is how western fashion has had a huge boost due to the series Yellowstone. There are even sites online where people can post the items they saw on the series and ask where to purchase them. I love it! I helped a girl find a silk, wild rag she saw on one of the actors. There is more: hats, gloves, boots, and sunglasses, but we can talk about that another time.
