So, you want to be a cowboy. You can, so get in line, bro. It’s the new “thing.”
I love western style. It is almost impossible for me to believe that a Brooklyn man like myself can be so obsessed with it. Do I live the life of a tough cowboy on the range, working hard every day just to have a glass of whiskey at the end of the night? No, but that’s not the point. The point is that I like how I look in western clothing. If that is a crime, then call the Marshal or Sheriff.
In the past year, western clothing has become more fashionable. It seems like most brands today have some sort of western-twang to their new lines, and I’m here to tell you that it’s really easy to get lost in the mix and end up just buying some jean jacket from Levi’s and looking like every other fool at the dive bar on any given night. I’ve gone ahead and handpicked the absolute coolest, most badass cowboy gear that I own or have blood-sworn and bookmarked on my browser to buy when that next paycheck comes. Pull any piece from this list and I promise you’ll not only look amazing, but you’ll also—actually no, that’s it. You’ll just look really good.

He said, “I wear Filson because if they make something, then they make it the best.”This jacket has a Mackinaw wool-lined collar and a weather resistant oil finish.
Tecovas calls this a modern take on a classic—which is pretty much right on the money.

I’ve written and spoken about these boots several times, but let me just say there is a reason I won’t shut up about them—they are awesome. Any boot by Tecovas is sure to get you compliments.
