Belt buckles from Clint Orms
To the untrained eye, a Clint Orms buckle is at first overwhelming with its detailed engraving in green, yellow, and rose gold. Images of longhorns, flowers with ruby centers, horseshoes, rope edges, symmetrical scrollwork, and stippled backgrounds add to their appeal, and prove why this artisan has been top of his craft since he first began hand-tooling leather belts in high school.
Cotton dress shirts from Bird Dog Bay
With classic patterns (think gingham and plaid) and 100 percent Egyptian cotton that's been milled in Italy, these timeless dress shirts are perfectly on trend for the rodeo but can take you all the way through work and a date night too.
Cowboy art from Gray Malin
From Wild West cowpokes contemplating the Marfa Prada installation to a hearty "howdy" spelled out in shiny gold balloons, everyone's favorite photographer has put together a collection that's sure to add some Western flair to your lair.
Jewelry from Nikki Smith Designs
Semi precious gemstones, druzy, pearls, and gold filled materials form the basis of this popular designer's modern yet dainty earrings and necklaces. Loop a large stone pendant around your neck as the final statement before heading to the stock yards.
Suede jackets from Sarah Stewart
With a feminine peplum silhouette and bell sleeves, this hip-length, lamb skin jacket is the ideal mix between boho and luxe. And there's a feel-good bonus: Each piece in the line is handmade by artists in the Balinese community.
