Hey, y’all, I would really appreciate some answers to practical fashion questions. I’m delving a bit into the western world and don’t want to look like a rosy-cheeked scrub when I walk into the barn. I would like to go the route of barrel racing, if that makes a difference. So, please give me all you know about jeans and boots, specifically. Some random questions I have are:
- For boots, why do some have such a distinct, sloped heel while others have the straight, more workman-like heel? Is one for fashion vs. working and which is better for riding?
- Jeans: what kind do you like when you ride? To bling or not to bling?
- Do you find certain toe-styles more comfortable when riding? Is there a standard?
If anyone else has a piece of advice they wish they’d know when they started, please let me hear it!
