Halloween Window Shopping

August 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

The governing fantasy is that Vintrowear will begin selling vintage costume apparel beginning Halloween 2014.  Since current resources are applied toward cowboy shirt acquisition and sales, our buyer made purchases from Vice Versa Vintage, only in her imagination.  Our imaginary 2013 Fall Collection would have included:

DIY Two-Toned Cowboy Shirt

Presto, chango: fancy western.  Thank you to Emma B. on Cut Out + Keep craft tutorials.  Great idea for a cowboy costume at Halloween!  More cowboy shirts available from Vintrowear, both plain and fancy.

Is rodeo, home of the western shirt, the modern, clean sport it claims to be?  Or are the rodeo clowns running the asylum?  Thank you, Missouri, home of my ancestors, for trying to clean up your act and make things right following this non-funny clown stunt:

And how ’bout those poor kids trying to make a living at falling off horses?

And more sad news on the westernwear front, San Jose’s not the cowtown it used to be:

Lyle Lovett promotes his new line of western shirts on Esquire.  A collaboration with Hamilton Shirts, these beauties will be known as the “Lyle Lovett Western by Hamilton Shirts,” available for a whopping $265 this fall.  Get this same awesome look from Vintrowear for $25.  Looks like his don’t have snaps.  Don’t worry, ours do.
