The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo kicks off this week and continues through March 22nd so you’ve still got time to cowboy up your wardrobe. Whether you’re going to see living legend Willie Nelson, cheering on the younger ones during Mutton Bustin’, or sampling Cheetos flavored cotton candy (!), why not look the part?
Here’s a roundup of shops for finding the perfect Rodeo look – from head to toe!
- The Hat Store has been in the business since 1915 with customers like Lyle Lovett and Clint Black sporting custom cut and hand-shaped western felt hats.
- For fashionistas and urban cowboys, Pinto Ranch is the place for designer westernwear.
- The artisans at Maida’s Belts and Buckles handcraft leather belts from exotic skins to tanned hides along with hand-engraved buckles made from precious metals.
- Lucchese boots have Italian roots but their first storefront was in San Antonio. Kathlyn’s Tip: Second hand boots are often the comfiest because they’ve already been broken in! Look for a vintage pair at The Guild Shop, My Flaming Heart, and Retropolis.
Go Texan y’all!
