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.

Season of Skulls: It Just Wouldn’t be Halloween without Skulls…Posted by Boot Star | 10.31.2015

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)

The Cowboy Boots You Need This FallPosted by Boot Star | 10.31.2014
Is it Fall yet? If we can just get past the heat wave that is sizzling in the West and start enjoying those fine autumn days, we’ll finally get to embrace all the new fall fashion fare. You don’t have to wait for snow, however, to start prepping your fall wardrobe with the number one essential on everyone's wish list: Boots!
So start brushing the sand off your favorite summer flip-flops because boot season is upon us! Although here in California we enjoy many sun-kissed days well into the season, boots are definitely the cold-weather must-have that West and East coast alike can’t get enough of —starting now. A little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, cowboy boots are the one fashion item that never go out of style. You may not want to pull out that wool coat or layered look just yet, but this fall's go-to ankle boots pair perfectly with billowy sundresses and crops as you slowly warm up your wardrobe. With styles that range from classic western to contemporary to out-and-out wild, there is always the perfect look for every cowgirl and cowboy (even if it’s just at heart).
Here are some favorite must-have boots you will absolutely need this Fall …
Ankle zip boots: Totally on trend this season, these stunning boots are your go-to for dressing up for a night out or just stepping out for lunch with friends.

Fall for Fringe BootsPosted by Boot Star | 10.22.2014
If you are in search of the perfect fringed cowboy boots this fall, you are not alone.
Fringe is definitely still leading the list of must-haves this season. From fringed handbags to tall and short fringe boots, we’re seeing some beautiful western-inspired fashion items for fall.
A little boho chic, a little southwestern styling, fringe boots are a great way to complete a variety of looks, and compliment many current fashion trends.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to wear fringe boots, whether you’re at home on the open range or stepping out on the city sidewalks.
The Southwestern look is definitely in right now, especially with Southwestern or Native American-inspired, turquoise and silver jewelry and accessories. Fringe boots or multiple layers of Western-style fringe finish off this look beautifully. Paired with a blouse, a denim skirt, and a statement turquoise and silver necklace, or with skinny jeans and a belted light denim shirt, knee-high fringed boots are the perfect match.
So versatile, fringed boots add interest to any denim outfit, and the natural comfort of these soft leather boots makes them the perfect go-to for a casual outfit. Try adding an on-trend fringed handbag, or a stylized cowgirl hat.
Fringe boots go hand-in-hand with today’s trendy fun and floral-print bohemian dresses and skirts. This playful and comfortable style virtually cries out to add a little leather fringe. Pull on a knee-high pair with a short bohemian dress and leggings, or pair ankle-high fringe boots with longer flowing skirts.
As those waning warmer days of summer fade to a bit more chill in the air, you can never go wrong with the ever-popular way to wear fringe boots -- paired with skinny jeans and a cozy long sweater. Worn with jeans, skirts or dresses, fringed boots complement a variety of looks this season.

Cowboy Boots and Western Trends in JapanPosted by Boot Star | 10.08.2014
It only takes one trip to Japan for you to quickly realize how much western culture has influenced modern-day Japanese society, especially in fashion. The Japanese now have all the same brands and stores that we enjoy here in the USA, and many of their fashions have become very similar to our own, while still maintaining the essence of their culture’s inherent style. In fact, pairing sleek leather cowboy boots with a favorite pair of jeans or coupling a vibrant hand-stitched western boot with a cute skirt has become one of the many new western influenced fashion trends quickly spreading across Japan.
Only about thirty years ago, western influence in fashion existed only in the form of high-end brands in the Ginza district of Tokyo. Now western boots have found their way into the hearts of men and women all over Japan. The Harajuku district, the epicenter of modern Japanese fashion, is filled with western influences in the form of women and men’s cowboy boots and other western influenced clothing. Jam-packed with boutiques and fashion malls brimming with international clothing chains, this hub caters to the tens of thousands of people who visit every day to shop, hang out, and check out the latest trends.

Western wear stores have been cropping up everywhere in Japan. Japanese stores like Funny Western Co. even carry classic American western cowboy boot brands, such as Lucchese and Rios of Mercedes. Cowboy boots can even be seen in Shinjuku, the business district in Tokyo and locale of the busiest train station in the world -- Shinjuku Station, the major meeting spot; it is also the administrative centre of the government of Japan. Cowboy boots have certainly taken hold and are here to stay as a staple of Japanese western fashion.

Schott Bros. "American Cool" Leather JacketsPosted by Boot Star | 02.01.2014
100th Year Anniversary Jacket Cognac Jacket - Limited Edition
Vintage Steerhide Cafe Racer Brown Perfecto Motorcycle Jacket
Brando Vintage Motorcycle Jacket White Brando Jacket
The first words that come to mind when you think of Schott Bros. is “American cool.”
A century ago, back in the day of the birth of the automobile and jazz, it was a time when people created quality-made products that lasted for generations -- a time-honored craftsmanship that still holds true today for Schott NYC. Schott was started by two brothers, Jack and Irving Schott, in a little shop in New York’s lower east side. It was a simple jacket company that became an icon of American culture. For the last hundred years Schott has been there, through world wars, the rise of cinema, and the birth of Rock 'n' Roll. From the creation of the Perfecto motorcycle jacket made famous by Marlon Brando, James Dean, Springsteen and the Ramones, to the Bomber jacket that protected our flyboys in WWII and beyond, America has marched on wearing Schott. Each day since 1913, when Jack and Irving created their first masterpiece, their family, through four generations, has continued the long-standing tradition of quality handcrafted, American-made jackets, and Schott continues to make jackets that define American culture today.
