Not that anyone needs a reason to break out some western wear in Houston, but this Friday is Go Texan Day, when the entire city of Houston is expected to acknowledge the opening of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo by wearing cowboy gear.
Of course, to be recognizable as a fashion statement you're going to have to do better than tight jeans and cowboy boots. Augment that look with the appropriate hat, belt buckle, bolo tie and bandana. (No, a Texans jersey doesn't count.)
And send us photos of you and your western-bedecked co-workers. We'll post the best ones--the more vintage, kitschy and fringe-adorned the better.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
