Are cowboy hats making a comeback?

Popular culture often drives fashion and style trends. Just look at how “Mad Men” has affected styles for clothing and product design as many are inspired by the classic looks of the early 1960s. Another trend to look for has to do with cowboy hats, cowboy boots and the whole country and western look. Again, this is in part being driven by television, with shows like “Justified” and now “Vegas” starring Dennis Quaid driving the new/old look. I remember back in my college days (a long time ago), everyone on our Midwest campus had cowboy boots. I liked them as they made me look taller! It will be interesting to see how popular this look becomes.

Of course, in many part of the country, the cowboy hat and the country look in general has always been and will always be popular. If you’re into this look there are tons of great retailers, both online and off, that cater to this market. You can also find tons of deals out there if you shop around. Stores like Rods.com cater to the classic country and western look, while there are many trendy retailers adopting the look.

In today’s world, the key to any man’s wardrobe is flexibility. If you’re at a slick hotel bar in New York City, you might want to go with the new, slimmer suits that hark back to the Mad Men look. But, as you know, you can also stand out by looking different, and some new cowboy boots or a cowboy hat will certainly grab the attention of the ladies. But these looks are great for every day use in particular. The key is mixing it up and being flexible. Don’t go with one formula. Try different styles and see which one fits you and your lifestyle, or the lifestyle you’re aspiring to have. Look the part!
