Regardless of whether or not it is your first rodeo or your 101st, who says that anyone has to be able to tell the difference?

Now that spring is finally upon us, that only means one thing: spring rodeo season. Whether you are there to cheer on the team roping, barrel racing, or watch how long each cowboy makes it on the back of a bull – you are going to want to make sure you dress the part.

For guys, never underestimate the power of a great cowboy hat, pair of cowboy boots, and perfectly-fitted jeans. These three essentials will take you from the rodeo to real life – and luckily, you can find the best quality of all of these items right here at Sheplers. Just pair them with a brightly colored plaid shirt or your favorite button up and consider yourself ready for a spring rodeo.

For girly girl cowgirls – go with a simple day dress that you don’t have to worry about getting dirty. For the tomboys, pair your favorite colorful tank with a pair of jeans or jean shorts and a leather belt. The best part about both of these looks is that they each come together with a classic pair of cowboy boots. For the ladies who want to show that this (literally) is not their first rodeo – throw on a cowboy hat and call it a day.

Wrangler Brand Questionnaire

“Wrangler has been outfitting cowboys and cowgirls since 1947 and has evolved into an iconic denim brand known for its heritage and deep roots in the western lifestyle.”

Shep Wrangler

Expect to see cowgirls running around clothed in fringe, lace, and colorful patterns alongside their urban cowboys this summer. In honor of the upcoming months spent in the sun, Sheplers spoke with Wranglers for an exclusive take on what to expect to see on shelves from the beloved brand this summer – along with some inside information on what sets Wrangler apart from the rest.

1.) What would you say sets Wrangler apart as a brand?

Wrangler has been outfitting cowboys and cowgirls since 1947 and has evolved into an iconic denim brand known for its heritage and deep roots in the western lifestyle. The depth and breadth of the Wrangler Western collection speaks to its commitment to quality and innovation, two characteristics that truly set it apart from its competitors. As the leader in western wear and maker of the original Cowboy Cut jean, Wrangler is not just a household name, but it’s a lifestyle. People know they can count on Wrangler for quality and durability – for clothing that can keep up with their lifestyle while remaining true to their western ways.

2.) What is your all-time favorite Wrangler memory?

I have so many wonderful memories at Wrangler it’s difficult to have a favorite. We’re fortunate to work with the best of the best in terms of brand endorsees, so being a part of their greatest moments is extremely rewarding. A few special memories come to mind – George Strait playing for more than 104,000 fans at AT&T Stadium in 2014, and being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006; Team Wrangler cowboy Trevor Brazile winning a record 19 world championships in 2014; and Dale Earnhardt, Sr. driving the Wrangler Jean Machine and seeing that legacy carry on with Dale Jr. There’s never a dull moment in this business, and we look forward to the great memories that are yet to come.

3.) How long has Wrangler been making denim?

Wrangler Western has been outfitting authentic western consumers and western-inspired shoppers since 1947.

4.) Describe Wrangler in three words.

Wrangler jeans are authentic, comfortable, and durable.

5.) What do you think the biggest spring 2015 fashion trend will be?

For ladies, we’re seeing fringe, lace, and colorful patterns as strong trends. Rich southwest-inspired patterns and color stories are still prominent this season. You’ll see a lot of this incorporated in our spring and summer collections, from colorful palazzo pants that are stylish without sacrificing comfort, to brightly patterned skirts and dresses that incorporate different materials/textures. On the denim side, we’re continuing to follow the clean back pocket trend in our Rock 47® by Wrangler® collection, by offering more styles and washes in skinny, boyfriend and flare fits.

For men, we’re seeing heavy stitched denim as a growing trend among our “urban cowboy” consumers. These cowboys are looking for a premium, fashion-forward, yet western-inspired jean that can be worn out for an evening with friends or to a concert. We launched the men’s Rock 47® by Wrangler® jean collection last fall to fill this need.

6.) Who would you say is your favorite country music artist?

George Strait. He has been a constant presence in country music for more than 25 years. The King of Country Music is a close friend to Wrangler and his talent and legacy are truly one of a kind.

7.) Is there anything exciting coming from Wrangler in 2015?

This summer, along with fresh color combinations in our men’s Wrangler Retro and Rock 47 by Wrangler shirt collections and unique dress patterns in our women’s Rock 47 by Wrangler and Premium Patch collections styles that create the perfect summer concert look – Wrangler is unveiling the next phase of its Premium Performance Cowboy Cut® collection offering innovative technology to meet the demands of our authentic cowboy consumer. The Cool Vantage Cowboy Cut collection features sweat control technology and wicks up to five-times faster than other denim to keep the wearer dryer and cooler. More details coming soon!

Why Cowboys Love Wrangler Jeans

A true cowboy knows that Wrangler Jeans were made specifically for them, back in 1947 to be exact. Rodeo cowboys of the 1940s needed jeans that they could be comfortable in and wear for rodeo use, so along came Rodeo Ben. Rodeo Ben worked with cowboys in order to create the perfect pair of jeans with a company that used to be known as Blue Bell. In 1947, the first pair of Wrangler Jeans were released as the 13 MWZ style…and they can still be purchased today.

So why do cowboys love Wranglers? It could be in part of the vast recognition given to them by former NFL star Brett Favre, or it could be because they can handle the wear and tear of a rugged man and have stood the test of time as being the perfect working man jean, or just every day men’s jean.  Wranglers are the staple of western men’s fashion and to this day, Wranglers are still men’s favorite jean.

But Wrangler Jeans knows that it has keep up with the times, so for the millennial men, there are the new Wrangler Red jeans. Wrangler Reds are more slimming for younger men and although the brand is taking their jeans to 21st century standards, their 1940s ideals still hold true, “There’s a bit of the West in all of us.”

Holiday Parties with a Country Western Twist

It’s the happiest, busiest, and most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are a time filled with celebration, and if you are hosting a holiday party, we’ve got an idea to offer guests a slightly different experience. Rather than the traditional holiday party, why not serve up one with a theme? Let your country & western pride show and host a party that is reflective of your lifestyle. We have a few tips to help you plan a party and cowboy (or cowgirl) would be proud to host.

Menu: Cook up some classics like pigs in a blanket, and add traditional party favorites like chips and dip to the menu. You could make it potluck, or you could do the full menu and offer barbecue, baked beans, hamburgers, and other All-American favorites.

Dress code: Encourage guests to feel comfortable and wear their cowboy boots, favorite pair of Wranglers, and cowboy hats. Your party, your rules!

Music: Luckily, there are a wide variety of holiday songs by country & western artists. A simple search online can also help you to find some holiday favorites by classic country artists as well as newer ones, like Taylor Swift.

Games: Everyone loves the game Dirty Santa, but you can put a simple western spin on it by offering  the same game with a new name like Outlaw Exchange or Holiday Bandits. You get the idea.

We wish you a happy holiday season, from our Sheplers family to yours.

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!
