Jeans have been an American staple since they began dominating the western landscape in the second part of the 19th century. In 1853, Levi Strauss brought his dry goods business out west to serve the increasing demand for work wear in Americaís rugged frontier. Soon after, he introduced the first riveted denim work pant, also known as the first blue jean. Since that revolutionary day, jeans have become an everyday part of American fashion, especially in the world of western wear.
In the western lifestyle, there really is no situation or occasion where jeans arenít the first choice for what pants to wear. We wear them to work, whether thatís the office or the ranch. We wear them on trips, whether by plane or by horse. And we will definitely wear them for any social occasion, not matter the setting. Be it a night at the saloon, a country dance hall, or even our best friendís wedding, denim is always appropriate.
Of course, different situations do call for different jeans. For a lot of us, that means they have to fit right when youíre in the saddle. In that case, youíll want something with ample coverage in the back featuring comfortable but durable designs. Youíll want no interference from the inseam and they have to work with your favorite pair of riding boots. Cinch, Cruel Girl, Wrangler, and Ariat all have great selections for the next time you want to climb on the horse or bull of your choice.
However, after you climb down from the saddle, you might be looking for something that speaks to style as much as function. For the guys, Rock and Roll Cowboy, Ariat, Lucky Jeans, and Stetson offer a variety of fits, from slim to loose, with touches of style like back pocket stitching detail and up to date finishes. The cowgirls get to step it up another notch with the embellished looks of Miss Me and Rock and Roll Cowgirl, as well as select fashion jeans by Wrangler, Cruel Girl, and Lucky. The use of rhinestones, studs, and even more intricate pocket detailing expand the options even further.
And then thereís always the company that started it all: Leviís. Famous for the 501 Shrink-to-Fit jeans, Leviís also makes a wide variety of fits for just about every jean customer you can imagine. From traditional fits to skinny jeans, low rise to full coverage, and from tapered to boot cut, the selection of Leviís jeans runs the gamut. The Leviís 517 Cut Jeans still remains a favorite amongst some of our long time western customers.
Finally, there are those who need jeans that will stand up to any challenge. For that, youíll find a selection of Dickieís work jeans as well as denim overalls, pants and shirts, in our work wear
