If you want to dress like you just walked off the set of “Yellowstone,” then you came to the right place. The Duttons wardrobe might not include designer pieces, but it still has a following among its fans.
Many of the clothing items are handmade, yes you read that right. Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter doesn’t go shopping at the five-and-dime store for many of the wardrobe items that are worn on the hit series. She and her team make various pieces to complete the “Yellowstone” wardrobe.
But don’t worry, we’ve rounded up a few different places and brands to check out to complete your wardrobe so you, too, can look like a cowboy.
‘Yellowstone Wardrobe: Cowboy Hats
Let’s start at the top and work out way down. Cowboys hats aren’t only a fashion statement, though that’s not exactly why real cowboys wear them, they’re meant to be functional, too. This accessory is often a necessity. The cowboy hat shields a person’s face and head from the sun. It’s also a staple in a cowboy’s dress code.
Nowadays, cowboy hats can be picked up at the gas station. So if you’re looking for one like Jimmy Hurdstrom (Jefferson White) wears, then just drop by your local convenience store. However, if you’re looking for a more authentic straw or felt hat, there are a plethora of offerings from some solid name brands.
There are American Hats that are very distinct because of their patch on the side of the crown. Most professional cowboys wear this brand of hat. But Resistol, Stetson, Justin, or Larry Mahan are solid choices as well. And ladies, if you’re looking for a hat too, or maybe just a flat-brimmed hat, then check out Charlie One Horse.
Those ‘Yellowstone’ Jackets and Vests
The jackets and vests are perhaps one of the most talked-about pieces of clothing on the internet. From Beth’s blue, blanket jacket to what kind of vest is John Dutton (Kevin Costner) wearing, this outerwear completes the “Yellowstone” wardrobe.
That famous blue poncho can be found with a simple search. For the rest of the jackets and vests, we recommend checking out the workwear line Carhartt. Believe it or not, but it was actually known as a functional line of clothing, made for keeping warm and being durable before it turned into a fashion statement. The men and women of “Yellowstone” understand that in their everyday lives.
A couple of other brands that carry similar clothing pieces to what’s worn on the show are STS Ranchwear, Carroll Leather Jackets, and Cripple Creek Leather Jackets. Also Brad Paisley makes a line of leather jackets under the brand name Moonshine.
Additionally, if you just want to peruse a couple of websites and see what strikes your fancy, then we recommend Boot Barn and Cavender’s. They both have pieces that look very similar to the “Yellowstone” wardrobe.
Lastly, Levi’s has made a comeback. Those sherpa-lined coats are very similar to some that were fashion staples in the 90s. And if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, then a good ole trip to the thrift store is where it’s at. Because what’s old is new again.
Western Wardrobe Accessories
Of course, boots are important. A trip to any of these stores listed above will be successful in finding a new pair of boots. There are so many different brands and types to choose from. The most common type of cowboy boot is a square toe that’s made out of some sort of animal hide. However, the more exotic that the animal gets, the pricer the boot will be.
Then there are wild rags and belt buckles. The most prestigious belt buckles are won, but a generic one can be found at any western store. The price range can vary from how fancy to how simple the fastener might be. Wild rags have become a fashion staple in the western world. But, as you see in “Yellowstone,” the wardrobe item is used functionally. The cowboy bandana is used to protect his face and airway from dust on the cattle drive. Plus it can also provide warmth. Our favorite wild rags are from Cowboy Wild Rags, and they’re made in America.
