About the book:

Forget bucking broncos - some of the wildest sights in the West can be found right inside a cowpoke's closet. From fringed chaps and embroidered jeans to silver-spurred boots and ten-gallon Stetsons, Western wear is a uniquely American look. Accompanying an exhibition at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage, this book tells the story of Western wear and its place in American culture through photographs of costumed cowboys, Western movie stars and country and rock musicians, ephemera (such as vintage album covers, sheet music and sewing patterns), and Western clothing from buckskin vests to spangled chaps. "How the West was Worn" is an authoritative yet entertaining look at "glitterbillies" long riders, rodeo girls and rhinestone cowboys.
