Western Wear 1850-2000

Historic Fashions Calendar Series
Sally Queen, Editor

$6.97 + s/h

Much of what we know as Western wear stems from the early working dress of American cowboys -- broad-brimmed hats, heeled boots with spurs, fringed chaps, tooled belts, bandanas, and stiff denim. These survive on working ranches, in rodeo and Western films, in popular dress and haute couture. Yet, as these collections attest, Western wear is much more. The traditional deer-hide dress of Sioux and Comanche men and women; a snakeskin flapper dress made by a Colorado woman known as Rattlesnake Kate; glittering performance costume by Nudie Cohen and Rodeo Ben -- these and many other examples do much to explain why the American West still captures imaginations worldwide.
