Spring Time Men’s Western Wear

At Sheplers Western Wear, we have a variety of western style clothing options and men’s cowboy boots to keep you looking good all year round. Because it is spring and the colder weather is starting to subside, we have just what you need to transition from leather jackets to short-sleeves. Check out some of our favorite picks in men’s western wear for spring.

What Men’s Western Wear for Spring You Should Be Wearing

The best men’s spring western clothes to have in your closet are a series of light t-shirts that will keep you cool and looking good. Graphic t-shirts are versatile and good for everyday casual wear. One of our favorites for spring time is the Cody James Men’s Rodeo Bull Graphic T-shirt. If you are not into typography and print shirts, a solid-colored t-shirt in a lighter, spring color is a good pick that you can wear for almost any occasion.

Spring can be a finicky time of year for the weather so you should expect some days to be cooler than others. The best men’s western wear for spring will include a go-to light jacket that you can throw on for those cooler days and nights. We suggest using an un-buttoned denim shirt like Wrangler Men’s Long Sleeve Retro Premium Vintage Wash Shirt over your t-shirt and rolling the sleeves. Denim matches almost anything, and you can easily remove it if you get hot. You can also always go for a light men’s western wear shirt in plaid or a colorful solid in case of cooler weather as well.

You would be hard pressed to find a true cowboy who is not in jeans. Because the temperature is rising, look for a pair of jeans that feel lighter and breathable. Warmer weather also means that you can switch out those dark jeans for a lighter blue.

As it is spring and the sun is out for longer, top off your look with a classic men’s cowboy hat or a baseball cap. Both will protect you from the strengthening sun. Straw hats tend to have a greater spring and summer vibe than suede or fur felt cowboy hats which could make you sweat. You will probably also want to invest in a good pair of sunglasses like the Under Armour Men’s Realtree Camo UA Big Shot Sunglasses. They can help protect your eyes from the blinding sun when you catch the next baseball game with your buddies.

Spring is also a time for more fun and eye-catching pieces than in the drab winter season where big jackets simply cover everything else up. Country spring outfits for men often feel incomplete without a statement belt and belt buckle. A big belt buckle can make your outfit really pop and get you noticed by the girls.

Our western store online has all of the cowboy clothing that you need to look good this spring and stay cool. Check out our store to fill up your closet with the right apparel for any season or occasion.
