By Ashley M. Biggers

Buckling Down

James Cavender had a Texas-sized vision for a men’s Western wear store and, over 50 years, the family has grown it to dozens of stores across the region. The Cavender’s men’s Western belt is perfect for those who may not have earned a high score in bronc-riding, but still want to look like a rodeo champ$25, cavenders.com

Color Me Cozy

Rancher’s daughter Kim Moncure curates clothes for the Western woman with edge in her online shop, Cowgirl Kim. This of-the-moment Cowgirl Justice Desert Tones Cisco wrap is quintessential Southwest, from the hues to the design. The cozy style is perfect for around the campfire or a date night. $78, cowgirlkim.com

On a Roll

Clint Harp, star craftsman from HGTV’s megahit Fixer Upper, left his corporate job to build furniture. A few years later, Harp and his Harp Design Co. team are filming Against the Grain, a new DIY Network series creating custom backyard pergolas and decks. Perhaps these yard dice — handmade in Waco, Texas — will get a roll in one of the spaces. $77.50, harpdesignco.com

Top It Off

Amie and Jolie Sikes fancy themselves purveyors of the world’s finest junk. They have flipped flea-market finds into a Junk Gypsy Co. dynasty headquartered at their Round Top store. This Gypsy hat adds a boho vibe to any outfit — whether you’re spending the day at a music festival or taking a Hill Country road trip$92, gypsyville.com

Boots in Bloom

With Italian craftsmanship and Texas-bred toughness, Lucchese is a heavyweight in the well-stocked boot industry. The company continues to churn out traditional designs that reflect its nearly 140-year Western heritage as well as modern designs, like the Catalina — a must-have bootie with an asymmetrical top and likable floral cowhide. $275, lucchese.com

Cow of a Different Color

After decades of painting images for NASA and illustrating for advertisements, artist John Lowery bought 50 acres in Burton, Texas, where hilly pastures called to be painted. He shows his creations, like Milky Morning, in Round Top at his Humble Donkey Studio. They turn the spotlight on the unassuming donkey and dairy cow, not just the longhorn$3,750, humbledonkeystudio.com
