Text & Drawings by Floyd D.P. Oydegaard
However you choose to wardrobe yourself, always think in terms of practicality. If you are a person who needs to move around in the dark, Lawman or Pistolero, wear black. If you work on the open range and need to blend in with your surroundings, a Cowboy or Sodbuster, wear earth colors. If you need to look wealthy and ostentatious, Gambler or Traveling Medicine Man, wear brighter colors with gold or silver piping. Most clothing is of darker shades, with variety occurring only in the wealthier class and where the influence of larger cities definitely dictates fashion.
