Boots and Buckles

Western Finery for Your Cowboy or Cowgirl

by Dylan Syverson

December 2015/January 2016

Not everyone hands up their five-gallon hat as soon as snow flies; for many in Santa Fe, Southwest style is a year-round commitment. Should you find one of these diehard cowpokes on your Christmas list, explore the multifarious offerings from the many merchants in town stocking luxurious Western attire. Between cowboy boots and belt buckles; custom-made and quality secondhand pieces; and materials that include 18-karat gold and alligator leather; these local treasures are sure to rope you in this holiday season.
