It is smart to work with the basics, because this is what you are most likely to have available to source, or already have on your shelves. It doesn’t matter if it is mid-thigh, button-fly, or 517 jean, the denim cutt-off short is still a staple for this spring. Pair this with a vintage t-shirt, scout shirt combo, or throw in a flannel and military shirt as a suggestive outwear ensemble.

You never even called me by my name

From the 1910s – 1930s we saw the Wild West American lifestyle move largely from a way of life, to ever-increasing faded memories and folklore. The western world was getting smaller. Technology and transportation were ushering in a new era of industrialized cities and advanced accessibility. The real denim-rockin’ cowboy lifestyle of days past were kept alive over the decades largely through the Western fashions worn by the stars of silver screen and music.

These images remind us when the American cowboy was an actual lifestyle and not just a passing trend. It was pointed out in the Selvage Yard, a lifestyle fashion blog geared towards men’s fashion and influence of style, that some of these images were taken by LIFE photography giants like Loomis Dean, and Ralph Crane to name a few. It is amazing to see how what was once a style dependent upon necessity has now become a fashion icon inspiring much of today’s trends. Vintage jeans, worn in full length or cut-off, western cowboy boots for dress of for the field, denim jackets and leather belts, cowboys hats and belt buckels are all pat of today’s looks.

Sally is making the most out of the Holiday Season at her vintage boutique but she knows that soon things are going to change for the worse if she doesn’t prepare. For years her shop took a hit after the holidays until she found a few simple hacks last year that increased her retail sales into the new year.

Losing a sale isn’t nearly as bad as losing a customers loyalty

Build Influencers
Telling your third customer in a row that you are sold out of popular item is more than frustrating for a shop manager. Losing a sale not only effects your numbers, but it means that you might lose a customer, or their loyalty which can be worse.

When you lose a sale to a first time customer, they will most likely move on and look somewhere else.  If you lose a sale to a loyal customer, they might look somewhere else as well, and that ‘somewhere else‘ will most likely be at one of your competitors. Each time they come up empty handed, you lose a little bit more of their loyalty. If this happens too much you can lose them altogether. If that happens often, you will not be an business for very much longer.
