Start with the right shirt. Denim, plaid, and flannel long sleeve shirts are traditional men’s western style clothes, but there are plenty of other options. You can switch it up with a short sleeve print shirt or a fun t-shirt like the Cody James Men’s Ya Herd Cow Graphic T-Shirt.

Western Wear Bottoms

Jeans are always a good choice; they are western wear staples in any closet. Wrangler jeans and Levi’s jeans are both popular brands. It’s up to you to decide what brand, style, and fit you prefer.

Western Wear Accessories

No cowboy outfit is complete without a pair of nice cowboy boots for men to complete your look. Whether you go for men’s work boots or the classic cowboy boots for men, good boots are a must. You can throw on a belt with a big belt buckle to make a statement or choose a belt with smaller details for good measure. Top it off (literally) with a classic cowboy hat of your choosing and you are ready to hit the town.

Whether you are looking for a few unique western cowboy clothing pieces to add to your closet or are ready for a whole new western wear wardrobe, at Sheplers we have you covered.

American Denim Guide: Wrangler vs Levi Jeans

Have you ever wondered what the difference was between Wrangler jeans and Levi’s jeans? Wonder no more. Our team at Sheplers is here to help you learn the difference between the two brands once and for all with this American denim guide.

The Backstory

If you haven’t heard of Levi’s, do you even know what jeans are? One of the most famous brands of clothing, Levi’s jeans were created in the late 1800s and featured one back pocket, a watch pocket, sizing cinch and buttons for suspenders. And of course, they had the strengthening rivets that they patented. Created for utility and comfort, the 501 Fit jeans have been around for more than 100 years without much change.

Wrangler jeans were created for cowboys and cowgirls, hence the name cowboy cut. The company changed from overalls to blue jeans with the help of celebrity tailor Rodeo Ben. Once professional cowboys endorsed the jeans, the company took off as the best option for people who ride. The 13MWZ Original Fit jeans have not changed much since their design over time, keeping their classic look and feel.

The Fit

Levi’s 501 original fit

Levi’s jeans are a straight fit with plenty of room, making it practical for anyone. The jeans never change its classic medium rise and sit perfectly on the waste. Other sizes include the 517 Boot Cut Stretch, the 505 Regular Fit, the 527 Low Rise Boot Cut, the 550 Relaxed Fit and many more.

Wranglers 13MWZ original fit

Wrangler jeans were designed for people who love to ride. The jeans are worn high on the hips. The cowboy cut fits over riding boots, the pants are loose and comfortable while also form fitting. Other sizes include the 936 Slim Fit Rigid, Solid Regular Fit Stretch, 947 Regular Fit Stretch, 938 Slim Fit Stretch and much more.

The Look and the Price

While Wrangler jeans are priced around the average of $25 and Levi’s are priced around $50, the jeans are comparable in quality. Both brands have changed colors and patterns over the years, but the classic look and feel has stayed the same over time.

Helping Your Cowboy Pick out Jeans

Sometimes you can look at a man and wonder, “What on earth was he thinking when he decided to put that on?” It’s no secret that men are not the best at fashion, and that sometimes they need a little bit of a push in the right direction. When it comes to a pair of jeans, they can be a man’s best friend. They can be worn to work, out with the guys, and if they are nice enough, maybe even out on a date. There are few things to keep in mind when looking for men’s jeans.

There are tons of different styles and cuts and washes of jeans. Different colors might be appropriate for different occasions, but for the most leverage you should be looking for a pair in a medium dark to dark wash. They by no means need to be skin tight, but they don’t need to be flapping in the wind. They should be nicely fitted, with not too much extra room. Comfort is key, but there needs to be a difference between the bagginess of your sweatpants and your jeans.

A few things to keep in mind when looking for that perfect pair: There is a big difference between slim and skinny. Skinny is typically what women wear, and slim cut could go either way. Men look good in slim cut, not necessarily in skinny jeans. Mid-rise jeans are typically the best way to go. They aren’t all the way up to your belly button, and aren’t showing your underwear either. And one more tip, cuffs make you look shorter. So keep that in mind when you’re deciding whether or not it’s a good idea to roll those bad boys up. Looking for the perfect pair of jeans? Sheplers has what you need!

Tips to Remember When Shopping for Jeans

Read More

As a long-standing wardrobe staple, blue jeans are basically and American pastime. As the 1950s saw screen stars like James Dean and John Wayne often decked out in denim, jeans became a quickly growing trend among frontiersmen, rodeo riders, motorcycle riders, young rebels, blue collar workers, and more. While the initial offerings of denim on the market were a few brands with a couple of styles, now it seems the options for buying jeans are endless. So how do you go about selecting a pair of jeans that meets your needs? We’ve got a blue jeans buying guide that will help you pick out the right jeans for your lifestyle and for your personal style.
Fit. This is a huge part of the process when shopping for jeans. Keep in mind that during regular wear, the fit will relax as the cotton stretches. It’s worth trying on a few brands to find the ones that fit you the best.
Thickness. Fabric weight is a big factor, especially if you’ll be doing intense labor (you’ll want a thicker thread/thicker weight), or if you are going to be in intense heat (you’ll want a lighter thread). Keep in mind that the lighter the fabric, the more likely it is to tear.
Wash. Some people prefer lighter denim, some prefer dark denim. Again, this depends on what you are going to be wearing them for. Also, if you find a brand and style you really love, you might want to grab one of each—a light and a dark wash.

Wrangler Jeans Vs. Levi’s Jeans

When it comes to western style clothes, a good pair of jeans are a staple, and every cowboy seems to have their own preferences. So how do you choose between some of the most famous denim brands of all time, Wrangler and Levi’s? While some jeans preferences are based on the brand’s reputation, some decisions are made based on fit. You will need to decide what is most important to you.

Wrangler Jeans Vs. Levi’s Jeans
Wrangler 13MWZ Cowboy Cut Rigid Original Fit Jeans

Wrangler Jeans

We are going to focus specifically on the 13MWZ Cowboy Cut Rigid Original Fit Jeans design, one of our most popular items in men’s western wear.

  • If your western wear includes numerous pairs of cowboy boots, these jeans may be for you as they are specifically designed to wear with cowboy boots.
  • These jeans feature a traditional zipper fly.
  • This specific style has a roomier leg and rear, but there is also a slim version available (Wrangler 936). You will have to decide which fit you prefer.
  • The texture of Wrangler denim tends to be rougher and feels like a thicker thread than Levi’s.
  • Wrangler jeans tend to be more affordable with prices almost half as much as Levi’s.

Levi’s Jeans

A popular pair of Levi’s jeans at Sheplers, the Levi’s 501 Jeans–Original Shrink-to-Fit, are another good choice for men’s western wear wardrobe.

  • Levi’s 501 jeans have a lower rise (about an inch) than Wrangler.
  • This specific pair features a button fly rather than a zipper.
  • The coin pocket is positioned lower on the Levi’s 501 than the Wrangler 13MWZ.
  • If you are not a fan of the Shrink-to-Fit fit, the 501 style also comes in a straight leg fit.
  • Depending on the fit, the 501 collection also comes in a variety of colors including indigo, black, green, light blue, and gray.

Our Sheplers cowboys recommend finding the fit you prefer before buying multiple jeans of the same style.

At the end of the day, jeans are a personal preference. We suggest you try out both brands of denim and see which ones you like the best. Browse our large selection of denim in our men’s western wear collection and find the pair that is right for you.
