Cowboy clothes at work?

I’ve been playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and have fallen in love with cowboy style.

Not the cowboy style you’re probably thinking of. No to tassles. No to spurs or chaps or even the hat, because though it does look cool, and makes sense for extreme sun in the West, I can’t pull it off in London.

Yes instead to smart-looking jeans or dark khakis. A plain white or gray button-up collar or Henley shirt. A cotton/twill/wool/denim waistcoat with some brocade. A long jacket or duster.

It looks awesome. I’ve been into waistcoats for a while, but not found one that I like. Now I’m hunting more. Here’s some of the guys I’m talking about:

That’s the main guy on the left. I also like Dutch’s look on the right. Minus gun belt, hat, and maybe pocket watch chain, it’s totally wearable in a modern office – at least in my office.

So, I’ve got some shopping to do!
