To celebrate our nations birthday this 4th of July, we are paying homage to the spirit of the American West and those cowboys and cowgirls whose style of sport is just as cool a look for urban dwellers too. We combed western shops, trading posts, and a few fashion establishments as well, looking for the most authentic Western wear with added some city style. Welcome to the wild wild west!
