4 Facts About Cowboys and Cowboy Style

The cowboy traditions date back much farther than just the cowboy style; though the clothing is very recognizable. There is a story behind everything that cowboys wear and a reason for it all. Sheplers knows cowboy style and has everything cowboys need to look their best and show their roots, as well as these interesting facts about cowboys and their style.

History

A cowboy is a cattle rustler, a cattle driver, and a rugged outdoors man. The traditional cowboy actually dates back to the Mexican vaquero, which is where the term “buckaroo” came from. Seems those early cowboys couldn’t quite get the pronunciation down pat. The Mexican cowboy hats were incorporated in the western cowboy style as well.

Cattle Drives

During cattle drives, a handful of cowboys (5-10) would move around 3,000 cattle for miles and miles; this practice has its origins in the meat industry. Cattle drives move slow because the cowboys didn’t want the cattle to be too thin when they arrived, which is why regular stops for grazing and rest are factored into the cattle drive.

Spurs

Cowboys had to earn their cowboy boot spurs through either a long cattle drive or a rodeo. Though spurs were always used, it was said that a cowboy earned his spurs by proving that he could do his job very well.

Cowboy Style

Back in the good ‘ole days, cowboys would wear the same clothes for weeks on end. In fact, that was what made denim so popular. Denim a resilient material and it doesn’t need much upkeep. The cowboy tradition of denim is one that has not ever faded out (pun intended) and is still seen on major fashion runways year after year.

Cowboy Style: Tips for Finding the Right Cowboy Hat

Howdy fellas. Let’s not mince words or waste time; a man such as yourself is here for one reason, and that’s to get some tips on how to get the full-fledged cowboy style. Sheplers has all the attire to keep a cowboy looking his best, but also has tips on finding the right cowboy hat.

Function

You need to keep the sun out of your eyes on those long cattle drives, and the only way to do that is with a functional cowboy hat. Back in the old days, cowboy hats were perfect for long distance travel on horseback because they sat in place and they covered a good spread, neck to face.

If you spend time outside, check the spread on your hat and make sure it fits well. You don’t want to go chasing it when the wind picks up and it blows right off your head. It should fit snug on your head, but if you can’t get your index finger in between your head and cowboy hat, it is too tight. If you are ordering a cowboy online through a western wear store, take measurements of your head and check the dimensions online to make sure that you are ordering the right size.

Form

Cowboy style is all about feeling confident and looking good. Cowboy up! The only way to do that is to know your look.

If you have a thin, long face, or you are a tall fella, then you want to go for the elongated cowboy hat.

If you have a round face and maybe you are a tad closer to your spurs than the next guy (a little shorter), then you want to get a cowboy hat with a high crown and a medium brim.

Color

Cowboy hats in the country are like ties in the corporate world, you can’t have too many. But to start your cowboy style off right, get yourself a good black, and a decent beige cowboy hat. Wear a black cowboy hat with your dark jeans or denim, and beige with lighter colors.
