Wild, Wild Dress - Men
By Beth Beutler

1     Western wear can be popular, especially in states like Texas. People sometimes dress in Western wear for the fun of it. It can be a rugged, stylish look, and many people enjoy how they feel when wearing clothes reminiscent of the days when men and women faced a harsh environment.
2     In those days, life was not nearly as convenient as it is now. I'm not sure we can even imagine what it would be like to take the risks these folks did. Many traveled out West to establish homesteads in land occupied only by Native Americans. Trips to the new land took months of traveling in covered wagons, without conveniences like washing machines and dryers.
3     The men had to carry a lot of responsibilities. They protected their families against intruders, they cared for the animals, and they fished and hunted to supply meat. They rode horses and scoped out trails ahead. To do all these things well, they had to wear clothing that was tough and protective. They rarely wore anything fancy, at least until they were settled into towns (read on!).
