western belt buckles

Despite the cowboy's reputation as a rugged individualist, one thing is understood in the West - no self-respecting cowboy or cowgirl is considered dressed until he or she has laced a western belt through the loops of their jeans.

It is believed the vaquero, or Mexican cowboy, first introduced fine silver spurs, tack and buckles to the cowboys of the untamed American West, and perhaps to the Texas Rangers. Until 1935, Texas Rangers did not carry badges, and members of the elite law enforcement unit have never had uniforms. However, they have always been distinguished by their impeccable dress, and it has been suggested that a desire to distinguish themselves might have led to their interest in fancier belts, buckles hatbands, spurs and tack. According to Dan Agler of the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, Texas, "It was a matter of pride. They were expected to dress well and behave well," he said. "When they found a piece of equipment they liked, they would adopt it and others would copy it." It may have been their desire to wear fine Mexican silver buckles with a wider belt that led to the development of the popular ranger belt and buckle. The ranger buckle set includes the buckle, one or two keeper loops and a matching tip. An enduring, popular style, you will find a wide selection of these ranger-style belts and buckles at Max Lang Handmade Belts and Buckles.
