From fringed chaps to silver-spurred boots to ten-gallon Stetsons, Western wear is a uniquely American look that has romanced the entire world. In How the West Was Worn, now available in an affordable paperback format, Holly George-Warren and Michelle Freedman round up the different styles of this enduring trend. The book is an authoritative yet entertaining look at "glitterbillies," rodeo girls, and rhinestone cowboys, featuring archival photos of celebrities as well as collectibles like vintage album covers and sewing patterns. The lively, fact-filled text, including a foreword by country-music star Marty Stuart, makes this book a barrel of fun for fashion devotees and country music fans alike.
