Hats, boots, chaps, neckerchiefs, dusters, and more: Western wear by mail.

Hats, boots, chaps, neckerchiefs, dusters, and more: Western wear by mail

In the last few years, mail-order Western wear has become big business, as small stores and craftsmen in out-of-the-way locations learned they could increase business by selling not just to local ranchers but to customers around the world. If you're looking for hats, boots, or other items of Western apparel (see our article on page 88), shopping by mail may be the best way to get hard-to-find sizes--and custom gear.

The dealers here specialize in this service. Unless otherwise noted, catalogs are free. The larger retailers accept major credit cards; smaller shops accept personal checks.

Note that it's probably too late to mailorder Christmas gifts.
