Season of Skulls: It Just Wouldn’t be Halloween without Skulls…Posted by Boot Star | 10.31.2015
With Halloween right around the corner, you can pay homage to "Dia De Los Muertos" and shop our Old Gringo Klak featuring black leather adorned with festive multicolored embroidery of Day of the Dead sugar skulls on top and foot.
Here at Boot Star we have a unique collection of jewelry, belt buckles, and hand-carved skulls from the talented Lee Downey. Based in Bali, Lee travels the world in search of precious stones and various materials to create intricate pieces of art. When we see Lee a few times a year, we carefully select pieces that we not only love and admire, but also feel add another element of uniqueness to our stores. Some of these pieces include a hand-carved amber skull, a hand-engraved sterling silver trophy buckle with mammoth ivory and fossilized clam shell that has also been hand-carved into a skull shape.
Dixon Rand Western Shirts - Capturing the Spirit of the American WestPosted by Boot Star | 10.20.2015
DIXON RAND "THE HIGHWAYMAN" WESTERN DENIM SHIRT
Continuing our tradition of honoring America's unique contribution to the fashion world, we're happy to introduce our new line of authentic Western Shirts from Dixon Rand. Designed for the Rebel, Adventurer, and Gentlemen everywhere, the Dixon Rand brand stands for: the freedom of the open road, an independent and individual spirit, unwavering respect for craftsmanship and quality, and a love of unique vintage textiles.
Dixon Rand was founded in 2013 with the premise that the clothing we wear is an expression of our individuality. To that end, denim is at the core of the brand designs. More than just another piece of cloth, denim has come to signify the American Spirit. From humble beginnings as a workman's fabric that clothed pioneers and frontiersmen, it is now associated with ubiquitous style from generation to generation.
As the good people at Dixon Rand would say, ... "there's "A Story in Every Stitch...."
"The earliest cowboy boots were simple flat-heeled, round-toed boots that they brought back with them from the Civil War. This style became more refined until the 1880s when the cowboy "style" of boot, which we now think of today, was introduced. This new version of the cowboy boot featured the use of softer, more exotic leathers along with decorative stitching on the top of the foot commonly known as the "boot stitch," which some cowboys swore gave them a snugger fit.
We started a conversation with the team at Boot Star earlier this year to create a style of denim shirt that spoke to the spirit of the cowboy boot. So low and behold, our 'highwayman' selvage denim shirt was created, complete with "boot stitches" on the pockets. But this stitching doesn't make the fit any snugger...." ~ Abe (Dixon Rand)
