Ready for some great news? Here we go!

After months of work and research we are excited to share some great news. Urban Western Wear is proud to announce the launch of Haul Style, our very own western clothing subscription service.

Through all of our years in business, our customer service has noticed through our live chats, phone calls, and e-mails received, that a lot of our customers want or need help deciding what to purchase or how to style their newly acquired outfits, and that is what Haul Style is here to do.

This new service is an easy way to get the clothes you need without the hassle of shopping for yourself.

  • Tell us what you would like to get (shirt, pants, accessories, or all of the above)
  • Take a quick style quiz telling us what you like and don’t like and how much on average you like to spend on clothing
  • Sit back and wait for your clothes to be delivered to your house

Having a personal stylist is no longer something that just celebrities do. Each member of Haul Style gets a personal stylist who will take the time to closely analyze your style quiz responses in order to find the clothes that best fit you. Your clothes are scheduled to be delivered to you monthly, but you can always change the setting to the amount of time that best works for you.

Once your box is delivered to you, try everything on and decide what you want to keep and send the rest back. When we hear from you about what you have decided to keep or return we’ll charge your credit card (never without your permission) for the cost of what you’re keeping. It’s really that easy.

Haul Style is not the first clothing subscription box, but it is the only one that specializes in western wear. We understand the western lifestyle; we know that a cowboy hat is not a costume and that boots need to be a lot more than just cool looking. We also know that not all cowboys are the same, so all our stylists build each box with a lot care. They are always there to help you with your shopping needs and you can send them an e-mail and request special outfits if you have a specific occasion coming up (weddings, vacation, parties in general).

If you’re not completely convinced to give this a try yet, let us give you the top 3 reasons you should sign up for it today:

1.- There are no contracts. You do not have to commit and you can always send everything back if you are not happy with your box.

2.- Always free shipping. We ship it to you and you ship it back and we’ll never charge you for it.

3.- Convenient and always made specifically for you. Having items picked out for you does not mean you get things that don’t match your style so that convenience doesn’t mean you have to give up style.

The 5 boot themes that prove Tin Haul has a boot for everyone

Everyone knows Tin Haul for their loud, creative designs that allow you to express yourself. Every inch of a Tin Haul of boot is meticulously designed to match that boot’s designated theme.  And it is precisely these themes that make Tin Haul the boots for everyone.



For the Football Fanatic

Whether he lives for the Friday Night Lights, Football Sundays, or Monday Night Football, these Football Stadium Boots make his love for the game known at every step. The Obvious Soles on this pair show pretty cool football field, but it is actually the design in the front that attracts most of customers. Everyone loves the football lacing details and, in our humble opinions, it’s what makes this whole boot so awesome.



For the Devout16222

We often get requests for the “Tin Haul Jesus Boot” and our favorite part is answering “which one?” After the insane popularity that the Between Two Thieves Boots had, Tin Haul has continued to make christian themed boots that are always very well received. The most recent styles are Ichthys Aroundus which displays Philipians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” in the obvious sole. In true Tin Haul fashion, even the stitched cross design in the front is made out ichthys symbols.

16215For women, “I love Jesus” was designed in a beautiful blue tone and features john 4:19 “we love him because he first loved us” in the obvious sole.






16213For the Survivors, the Fighters, and Supporter

There is only one complaint we get regarding the Tin Haul Hope Boot and that is “but why don’t they make it for men too!?” Don’t worry, we always pass that feedback to the Tin Haul team in hopes they start making it one day. The Hope boot is Tin Haul’s effort to raise breast cancer awareness during October, as well as every other day in the year. The obvious sole eloquently reads “Hope for the Fighters, Peace for the Survivors” with an iconic pink ribbon in the background.


For the Patriots

American Woman and Freedom boots are for those out there who love their country more than anything else. For the loud patriots who like to scream their love for the american flag at every opportunity, these boots are adorned with the stars and stripes alike. American Woman’s obvious sole reads “Shoot Like a Woman”
because the only thing better than a woman who loves the United States is a woman who loves the United States and can shoot well enough to prove it. 16228

Freedom, the men’s patriotic boot version, can also be sported in support of the troops since the sole design is a dog tag inscribed with the words “Freedom isn’t Free.”




16219For the 90’s Child

There’s nothing a 90’s child loves more than telling people they’re a 90’s child and Tin Haul is about to save you the words. No longer will you need to figure out how to stealthily drop what era you grew up in during conversation, all you need are the Multicolor Sunflower Boots. Not only are the toes of these awesome boots covered in sunflowers, the most iconic flower in the 90’s, but the obvious sole design is smiley faces. Enough said.


Great Ideas to Enhance Your Country and Western Themed Wedding

Most little girls grow up dreaming about the day of their perfect fairytale wedding. You may have had every little detail of that dream wedding planned out before you even hit middle school, but the likes and dislikes of everyone change as they grow up. Today, you are just as likely to see brides and grooms dressed up as super heroes for their big day rather than in the traditional white dress and tuxedo. Themed weddings are all the rage, and one with a country and western theme is among the most popular. If this type of wedding is on your wish list, then here are a few ideas that can help you make it just perfect.

Add Some Country Flavor to Your Big Day

• Skip the Chairs: Forget about renting those expensive chairs, and consider using square bales of hay or straw for seating the guests at your outdoor wedding. Be sure to only use fresh bales that have been kept dry and are free of mice, snakes and other creepy crawlies. Your guests will love it, and you can still use decorations at the end of each aisle for a fancy touch.

• Switch Up the Altar: A nice, old-fashioned horse hitching post is a great spot to say your vows. Make sure it’s polished to the perfect shine, and the bride and groom can stand before it while the ceremony is performed. It’s also a perfect spot for wedding photos.

• Ditch Those High Heels: Every bride should have the perfect wedding dress, but you don’t necessarily have to wear high-heeled shoes to complete the ensemble. Instead, go shopping for the fanciest cowgirl boots. You may find the perfect ones to go with your dress, or you can always decorate those boots for a better match.

• Special Cake Toppers: Skip the traditional figurines of the bride and groom on top of your wedding cake, and go with something to fit your theme. You’ll be surprised what is available, and you can easily find figurines that depict the groom using a lasso to catch his bride and other fun country and western ideas.

• Replace the Veil With a Hat: Believe it or not, the perfect cowgirl hat is out there. Fix it up to match your boots and dress, and you will be the perfect country and western bride.

• Choose a Special Location: Not everyone gets married inside of a church, and you can select the perfect spot for your country and western wedding. A very popular choice would be a rustic barn surrounded by acres of lush crops. Others choose a large field next to a clear-running stream.

• No Limos Here: A beautifully-decorated wagon and a couple of gorgeous white horses may deliver you and your wedding party to the designated area. Even the harness for the horses may be festooned with colorful ribbons to honor the festive occasion.

Start Planning Today

You can never get too early of a start on your wedding plans. If you’re doing all of the hard work yourself, then get busy with these tips today. Those using a wedding planner should find one that has some past experience with this type of a themed wedding, so that you can be assured of getting exactly what you want on your special day.

Not All Jeans Fit the Same: How to choose the best pair of jeans for your body type


When choosing the perfect pair of jeans, we at Urban Western Wear recommend that you think more than your waist size and inseam. There are many different styles that you might consider to make sure your jeans are both comfortable and look great!

Waist Styles
When buying jeans, you’ll need to know your waist size, but beyond that, consider what kind of waist style, or ‘rise’, will be most comfortable and flattering to your figure.

The rise refers to where the waistband of your jeans fits on your torso, and is the measurement from the middle of the seam that goes between your legs to the top of the waistband. Low rise jeans generally fit best when worn at the hip, and some people call these ‘hip huggers’. Medium rise jeans, also referred to as mid-rise or natural rise, fit at your natural waist. High rise jeans are worn higher on the waist, above the belly button.

A medium or ‘natural’ rise is the most flattering style for most body types. For natural rise jeans, the waistband should sit an inch or two below the belly button. A higher waistband is referred to as high rise, and these are great for tall men and women, and for people who wish to avoid unsightly ‘muffin tops’. However, in some cases they can make you look frumpy and old fashioned, particularly if you have a shorter torso. Finally, low rise jeans work well for people with lean figures and slim hips.

Leg styles
There are two different pants leg styles you will commonly find in jeans: straight leg and bootcut. Straight leg jeans have the same leg width from the knee to ankle, while bootcut have a flare midway between the knee and ankle. As the name suggests, bootcut jeans are great if you’ll be wearing cowboy boots under your jeans, as the slight flare allows a little more room for the top of the boot. They can also help accentuate a woman’s natural curves.

Some brands may also feature skinny jeans, with legs that are cut much narrower than straight cut, often from the thigh all the way down to the ankle. These styles are made to fit close to the skin and look best on slimmer individuals.

Jeans cuts

With many brands of jeans you can choose between a classic (also known as ‘average’) fit, a relaxed fit or a slim fit. Relaxed fit styles are a more generous cut, and have extra room in the thigh area and seat, while slim fit are made to fit snugly. Classic jeans follow your body’s curves more than relaxed styles, but are not too tight. When choosing these cuts, it’s worth considering how your jeans will look and how comfortable they will be to wear. For working and active wear, the classic or relaxed fit will be more appropriate, while slim fit will be perfect for going out for a night on the town.


At Urban Western Wear, we carry several different brands of jeans. One brand we really like is the Cinch brand, which offers modern styling with a western edge. Cinch Carpenter jeans offer a low rise and relaxed fit, while the Fastback gives you a relaxed straight-leg style with a hot distressed denim look. And keep an eye out for the Grant and Ian styles of Cinch jeans, which we know will be a big hit. We also offer jeans from T. K. Axel, a company that has been around since 1865 and brings a vintage look to their products. The durable yet cutting-edge styles of Ariat jeans are also worth a look, particularly the Deadrun slim straight-leg jeans from Ariat.

3 Questions You Should Be Asking Yourself Before Buying Ariat Boots for Men or Other Cowboy Boots

ariat boots for menWestern wear has been popular since it was worn in the early 19th century on the frontier as people battled the elements moving westward. But where denim, flannel, and cowboy boots were once a necessity on rough terrain, today they tend to be more of a fashion statement than anything else. Whether it’s fashion or function, buying a good pair of cowboy boots should involve some background knowledge.

If you’re considering making a purchase to get an authentic cowboy or cowgirl look, make sure you do your research first. Here are the three questions you should be asking yourself before buying cowboy boots.

Does brand name matter when buying cowboy boots?
Brand matters, but not necessarily in the way you might think! For instance, Ariat boots for men and women are just one of the many brand options. Brand names like Ariat boots for men may come in a number of neutral tones and include western style work boots; for women, these western style boots can include a number of styles, heel heights, and other details. While Ariat boots for men and women might be one of the options available, there are other brands, too, including Cinch, Tin Haul, and Tony Lama boots, which will all have their own unique look. But don’t get so hung up on brand name. Yes, it may matter in terms of authenticity, but there are other factors to consider when buying cowboy boots.

What’s important when buying cowboy boots?
One of the best ways to gauge quality is to look at the materials being used to make the boots. Cowboy boots, especially, need to use genuine leather, or else they risk wearing out fast when made from cheaper materials. A finished leather will give boots a shiny appearance; unfinished leather has a matte quality to it and is good for a more rustic look. However, caring for your boots is just as important, if not more so, in making them last. Make sure to remove dust and dirt after each wear, and polish the boots if necessary, to keep the leather in good condition. Leather lotions and other treatments can also help to reduce cracking and wear on boots.

Is it worth it to buy discount cowboy boots?
The nice thing about western wear is that it doesn’t have to be expensive. While some brands can cost a small fortune for a basic outfit, other names in western fashion offer the same styles for less. Some retailers will even offer discounts on designer brands that would cost far more elsewhere. In other words, yes, it can be worth it to buy cowboy boots at a discount, but only if you know what you’re getting.

Three Things to Keep in Mind That Will Help You Find the Best Pair of Cowboy Boots

ariat boots for menHow well do you know your cowboy boots? Whether you’re in need of a new pair or buying them for the first time, it is imperative that you get it right, so you’re not running out shopping again in a month or two. Here are three aspects of the process for buying cowboy boots that you’ll need to keep in mind as you shop:

Pay attention to the fit
While choosing comfortable shoes are a given in most cases, you may be unfamiliar with how cowboy boots are supposed to feel once you put them on. You may wonder how tight the toes should be, or how much room you should have in the heel. While some aspects of the fit may come down to preference, there are ways to avoid discomfort when you buy western style boots. Pay attention to the boots’ width: either B or C for women and D or EE for men. Despite the pointed toe, the boots will accommodate your foot so long as you purchase the correct width. Your toes should be no more or less than 1 to 1-1/2 inches away from the end of the boot, and you should be able to slip them on comfortably. However, fit may vary a bit by brand, such as when it comes to the difference between Cinch boots and Ariat boots for men.

Know your brands
For some people, brand really doesn’t matter. When it comes to choosing an authentic pair of cowboy boots, though, you may want to pay attention. Tony Lama, Cinch, Tin Haul, and Ariat boots for men and women are all examples of popular western fashion brands, for instance. Different brands can also mean a plethora of designs to choose from: Ariat boots for men may offer you different designs that a pair of Tony Lama boots. No matter which brand you choose, all cowboy boots need to be cared for the same way. Because leather can crack and wear out easily, you’ll want to make sure that you shine them with a sponge after each use. This goes for both finished leather, which has a shiny luster, and unfinished leather, which is more matte and gives the look of vintage western boots.

Expect to pay for quality
Sure, you might be able to find dirt cheap boots, but often the price is too good to be true if you’re looking for something that will last. At the same time, the price for a pair of cowboy boots can climb as high as $20,000 for a pair that are custom made. Many outlets and retailers will offer discount cowboy boots that are the same great brands but sold for far less than they would normally cost. While it is true that you’re paying for quality leather and craftsmanship when you choose an authentic western brand, it is possible to get a good deal if you know where to look.

Three Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Buy Designer Western Jeans

designer western jeansMany people dread going shopping for jeans, especially given how styles and fits can vary so much. Men may be able to gauge their size by their waist and inseam measurements, but they often have to take different styles into account, like a relaxed fit or a skinny jean. For women, the process can be a bit trickier, as size charts can vary across brands and differences in style, rise, and fit can all contribute to difficulties when shopping.

Buying designer western jeans to get that perfect cowboy or cowgirl look is no different, but there are certain advantages to purchasing quality denim. Western wear is its own unique look derived from the clothing worn in the 19th century American West, and today it is found all over the world in cowboy hats, western style boots, and other western fashion accessories. And yes, this type of clothing also includes plenty of jeans.

Before you consider the purchase of designer western jeans, there are a few questions you should ask yourself. Don’t forget to answer these three inquiries as you figure out which jeans are right for you:

  • Why do you need to buy a pair of jeans? How and when you plan to wear a pair of jeans matters, especially if you’re shelling out for designer duds. If you’re planning to wear them for ranch work, a rodeo, or any other kind of physical activity, keep the quality of the jeans in mind. Many pairs of cowboy jeans fit close to the thigh so they don’t chafe while horseback riding, so if you need them for a similar purpose, make sure they’re the right cut.
  • Will you want to wear these jeans a few months or years from now? Fashion these days can be somewhat disposable, and most people have no qualms about giving up on a pair of jeans or another garment within a few months. But if a good pair of Ariat or Cinch jeans will an investment for you, then you’ll want to think carefully about your purchase. Will these jeans still be stylish a year from now? Are they something you can wear if your lifestyle changes or as the weather warms up or cools down?
  • What else will you wear with your jeans? Thinking about potential outfits is important when buying any piece of clothing. Although jeans are fairly versatile and can go with almost anything, you’ll still need to consider how they’ll work with certain garments. Can you only wear them with t-shirts or tank tops? Or can you pair them with dressy tops for work or going out? Take shoes into consideration, as well. If you have several pairs of cowboy boots, you’ll want bootcut jeans that will fit over your shoes or jeans that are narrow enough to be tucked into the boots.

What You Need to Know About Ariat Boots for Men

Ariat boots for menCowboy-style clothing started out as a necessity to protect cowboys from the harsh environment they worked in, but Western wear now serves designer, as well as practical, purposes. If you’re looking for some true Western work boots, however — made for function, and not just looks — you’ll probably need to do a little more research than if you were just looking for something with an old-time flair.

If you’re new to the search, then Ariat boots for men are a good place to start. Here’s what you should know about Ariat mens boots:

Ariat’s Core Principles
Ariat as a company actually focuses on equestrian athletes, meaning it expects its boots to be worn in some tough conditions, and not as fashion accessories. They’re made of rugged materials, just like cowboy attire from the 19th century. But you shouldn’t let the old-fashioned look of some of Ariat’s boots fool you, either; they’re designed based on the latest technology for high performance and all-day comfort regardless of whether you spend your days on the ranch or in the office.

Choosing the Right Boots
It’s hard to go wrong with Ariat work boots, and much of your choice will be based on personal taste. However, there are a couple models of Ariat mens boots you might want to take a look at to get started. The Sierra Henna is a good choice if you’re looking for a tough boot and subtle detailing. The cut of the boot and some extra seaming are a nod toward Western styles without going over the top. If you’re looking for a more traditional “cowboy” feel and are willing to spend a little extra on style, then the Ariat Shallow Water should fit the bill, with its square toe, and contrasting colors of leather.

Caring for Your Boots
Ariat boots for men are tough, but you should still take the time to clean them regularly; with good care, they’ll last for years. Keep in mind that should they get wet, leather cowboy boots should always be allowed to naturally air-dry, and a once-over with a quick-shine sponge should be sufficient to bring back the leather’s natural luster.

Wyoming Deputy of 40 Years Retires After His Department Bans Western Fashion Accessories from Officer Uniforms

western fashion accessoriesCowboy hats and boots are probably considered some of the most beloved western fashion accessories in the United States. Yet apparently few people love them more than a former Wyoming deputy who quit his job after a new dress code banned the items.

That’s right: after the new Sublette County Sheriff took office in January, he ordered his staff to conform to stricter dress code standards. “We are one team with a unified purpose,” Sheriff Stephen Haskell told his local Casper Star-Tribune. Therefore, officers all need to look the same in a county described as no bigger than Connecticut by a department spokesperson who talked to the Los Angeles Times.

But that didn’t sit well with Deputy Gene Bryson, who had been with the department for 28 years and had worked in law enforcement for 40 years total. Bryson regularly wore a brown cowboy hat, brown cowboy boots, and a leather vest in the summer or a wool one in the winter, worn over his uniform. The new uniform dictates that officers can only wear black trousers, a tan shirt, black boots and (optionally) a black baseball cap.

Bryson admitted to reporters that the uniform change was “kind of the reason” why he decided to retire. His western clothes and accessories were his style, and something he felt represented deputies in Wyoming. In fact, when he first began in law enforcement, Bryson said that his first department in Lusk County didn’t even have uniforms. “We wore blue jeans, cowboy boots, western shirt, put a badge on our western shirt and went to work,” he said to KCWY 13 in Wyoming.

Considering that the department’s explanation was primarily about the safety of officers, their reasons are understandable. This news story does highlight the need to decide when western style hats, boots, and other clothing is appropriate (or when it isn’t).

Western fashion accessories are fairly easy to incorporate into other outfits, however. Cowboy hats, some of which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, are considered perfectly acceptable in certain parts of the country as daily wear. Western style boots are perfect for casual outfits, though some types can be worn with formal wear if it’s not too showy (and permitted). Anyone who owns a pair, though, has to know how to take care of these boots. Finished leather, which has a shine to it, needs to be polished regularly. Even unfinished leather should be dusted regularly to keep it clean.
