western show apparel
Does anyone know anywhere other than Rods and Hobby Horse to get nice AFFORDABLE western pleaseure clothes? I need a showmanship outfit but I'm not rich!

Try wearing as much/many street clothes as you can get away with. A pair of black slacks out of a regular store are 10x cheaper than out of a "western" one.
Spend your money on the bling pieces then you can stand out...I always like black as a base with another pop color.
Sorry I don't have a web site for ya...guess you asked for that not tip and tricks :oops: ...lol...good luck! :D

Tips are good. I actually was thinking about buying a bedazzler and a plain blazer. I have some cute shirts I bought from Rods and Hobby horse has some i love but wow the price.....

If you get nice hat and boots everything else doesn't matter much. Lol! But I agree pair of nice jeans in "human" store will cost tons less than same pair of "western" jeans from "horsey" store. :)

Just checked boots and hats at http://www.tack-wholesale.com
(one of the cheapest I know). OMG! :shock: SO expensive! I got my boots and hat 5 (at least) times cheaper at the Horse Expo!

looks like my $90 rods shirt is what i'm sticking with! it looks really fancy at the local shows but when i go to the qh shows.... not so fancy......in fact... i look like a beverly hill billy!

HOLY MOLY!!! I didn't have a clue some of those were that high! :shock:
I thought of another tip...check out Craigslist.com I have noticed that there are a few gals posting their used or new and never worn show tops on there...like $100 and less. Maybe you could arrange for shipping if they are't in your area?

I'v seen SS outfits for 2,000 and up. Its just how it goes. Try going to a tack auction or a tack swap, you can find good deals there

. I have gotten some really nice \ cheap stuff from there.
