Nothing beats the comfort and look of a pair of good vintage western boots.
Someone already did all of the hard work of wearing them in, giving them the perfect look and feel. Another great thing about vintage boots is their construction, they were built to last. Not like boots today that will barely last a season, vintage boots were built to last over lifetimes. That is what makes our particular collection of vintage boots so special, their history as much as their future.

Wrangler is another classic vintage label
Wrangler is known for their classic vintage denim jeans along with their classic vintage denim jackets. The look and feel of vintage wrangler pieces seams to surpass time in it’s style and vintage authenticity. Because of this many modern fashion designers are continuing to knock off great vintage Wrangler pieces from the past for today’s collections.
Wrangler was started with its roots in the Hudson Overalls Company of Greensboro, NC. Founded, in 1904, it was renamed Blue Bell in 1908. For years they manufactured work clothing for men, and during WWII, they manufactured clothing for military use. After the war, in an attempt to compete with the jeans makers Levi Strauss and Lee, they decided to develop a brand name they had acquired in 1943 when they bought the Casey Jones Company. This brand was Wrangler.
In 1947 Blue Bell hired a renowned rodeo tailor, Ben Lichtenstein, or Rodeo Ben, to develop a line of jeans under the Wrangler name. The line was successful, and so the Wrangler name was also used for other denim clothing, including that for women and children.
In 1986, Blue Bell and Wrangler were bought by the VF Corporation.
It is almost that time a year where many of us get to shed our clothes and soak in some rays down at the local water hole. This year 1970’s fashion is on the rise and I just can’t help but browse through some of favorite photos of 70’s swimwear. From European designer beach wear to southern California surf-wear, 1970’s swimwear had a a style and appeal all of its own.
There are certain keys to follow when dating vintage swimwear:
-Lastex began to be used in swimwear starting in the late 30’s and continued through the 50’s.
-Spandex, better known as elastane in Europe, began to be used in swimsuits in the late 60’s. Dupont patented this as Lycra.
-Fabric content on labels was mandated in the 1960’s
-Garment care instructions seen on labels beginning in 1971
-Symbols on care labels began in the 1990’s in the US, earlier elsewhere
