Western boots in Billings, Montana

Hey you are in the West.  Look the part.  A great selection of western boots for every cowboy and cowgirl can be found at Al's Bootery and Repair Shop in downtown Billings, Montana.  Other great stuff here too.

Another super western wear merchant is Hoglund's in Great Falls, Montana.  Many top brand cowboy boots here.  Boots of many colors and styles.  Hoglund's also has a wide selection of quality western hats and western jeans and shirts.  Plus western accessories such as belts and belt buckles, a large selection to suit the taste of every cowboy and cowgirl.  Great Falls is located in north-central Montana, not far from Canada.  So much to like at Hoglund's.

If you are a real cowboy, not just any western hat will do.  Good news.  The Rocky Mountain Hat Co. in Bozeman will make a hand-crafted custom hat for you. Hats with 100% beaver fur felt are made here.  A custom fit is a big advantage of buying a custom hat.  Hats bought at Rocky Mountain hat Co. may set you back a chunk of change.  But remember, a western hat can last for decades.  A good investment for sure.
