Are you ready for fall? Men’s Western StylePosted by Boot Star | 11.09.2015
GETTING READY FOR FALL -- MEN'S FALL FASHION -- AMERICAN MADE
For years we have supplied products that we believe in; items that we are proud to carry and pieces that we wear. We are pleased to offer a line of men's products that are American Made.
In collaboration with the Los Angeles, California-based shirt maker, Dixon Rand, we believe we have created the best fitting, snap button, boot stitched pocket detail denim western shirt. With careful selection, we've kept to the classics in leather motorcycle jackets from the iconic leather powerhouse based in New Jersey -- Schott Leather. We've also added to our growing selection of t-shirts for not only men, but can also be worn by women. "The Chicken Ranch" by Bandit Brand has quickly become a favorite. Our handmade plain, tooled, and exotic belts from California and New Mexico can be worn as is with a simple buckle or with a trophy buckle from Comstock Heritage, which is based in the same state as our second location, Nevada. The handmade Coronado Leather bags made in San Diego, CA use Horween leather from Chicago for bags that can be utilized as a gym, work or weekend bag. Last, but certainly not least, is our most recent collaboration with one of our favorite boot companies -- Rios of Mercedes. Straight from the southern tip of Texas, the good people at Rios have been the perfect marriage of creativity and quality.
Effortless Season to Season: Liberty Black BootsPosted by Boot Star | 11.03.2015
Each pair of Liberty Black boots for women is one-of-a-kind footwear. They are unique because each shoe or boot is hand treated with hand dying, brushing, burning, washing, etc. to give the leathers the Liberty Black personality. From tall, harness-style riding boots, to fringe boots, to classic cowgirl styles, to short and sassy ankle boots, there's a boot for every closet! In a wide array of colors for every season and every outfit, Liberty Black boots embrace individuality. Two of our favorite new additions to our growing selection of Liberty Black boots include concho embellishments! Take your pick from a short zip ankle boot or a traditional western boot with mule ears.

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)
