How to Clean Your Men’s Western Shirts at Home

Whether you’re too busy to make it to the professional cleaners or simply don’t feel like spending the money to send your clothes to the dry cleaner, just like your shirts, Sheplers has your back. Below are a few easy tips and suggestions on how to clean your men’s western shirts right at home.

First, it’s important to remember to only wash your shirts when they’re dirty. Oftentimes, you’ll try on two, three, four or more shirts before finding the perfect one to complete your outfit. Throwing your shirts on the floor after taking them off don’t constitute as dirty. Save yourself the wash to lengthen the lifespan of your men’s western shirts.

  1. Find a good detergent, and use less of it. This may seem obvious, but buying the wrong laundry detergent could ruin your clothes. You’ll need to find something gentle and powerful, and avoid using an entire capful. Unless you’re rolling around in the mud in your nice dress shirts, it’s unnecessary to put your clothes through all the excess washes.
  2. Use a newer washing machine, and choose the right cycle. The delicate cycle on a washing machine uses cold water and light agitation to gently clean away any dirt that may be on your shirts. If you’re unsure of which cycle to use for your men’s western shirts, always double check the label.
  3. Hang dry your shirts. Nothing damages nice, delicate clothing like the dryer does. Hang drying your shirts will make them last longer, as well as help them to maintain their shape. The professionals at Sheplers also suggest using plastic hangers, as opposed to wood hangers, to hang dry your men’s western wear.

Never forget to read the label when it comes to the care of a western garment. Your clothes are guaranteed to last longer when you take care of them.

How to Wear a Bolo Tie

Now that the denim dress shirt has made a profound comeback, the bolo tie is slowly creeping up the fashion totem pole too. The bolo tie (also known as shoestring necktie) was first introduced as a simple way for men to bring their outfits together and add a little style and flair. The style soon became a Western wear trend, but has fallen to the wayside until recently. If you are looking to add a unique, yet traditional twist to your suits, dress shirts, or chambray shirt, bring this 1940s throwback to your 21st century apparel.bolo

When finding the right outfit to wear a bolo tie with, you do not want to overdo the Western look.  Bolo ties are a sort of statement piece in their own essence, so use them as either a simple addition to an already elaborate suit, or as more of a decorative piece to dress up a more casual look.

If you opt for a bolo tie in place of a regular tie, keep it simple so that it adds the right amount of class. Go for a bolo tie that has a flat silver jewelry piece and two solid black leather braids.

For more of a laid back, every day look, you can use the slider on your bolo tie to hang it lower on your neck, making it look more like a necklace against a simple shirt, jeans, and leather shoes.

Want to make your own bolo tie? Use attractive metal jewelry pieces, flat objects, or polished stones, and attach them to cords of leather and cordage stock for a simple bolo tie that you can wear on any occasion. Or you could visit Sheplers online or retail store in your area, and choose from a wide variety of classic bolo ties for the Western wear aficionado.
