Boys to Men, Rodeo Style, Las Vegas

When do we get to see the cowboys in their absolute finest? A "dressed up" cowyboy is somewhat on par with a fully dressed service man. I think.
Still, fantastic photos as always.


Blogger Lance Miller said ... (1:18 PM) : 

Cool photos Scott!

I high recommend going to an AQHA or NCHA event in Fort Worth or Oklahoma City - there is an uncanny combination of professional cowboys and American high fashion. You have to see it to believe it - probably a few names and faces you would recognize too.

These photos highlight why i'm so enthralled by this blog. Your ability to capture not just to clothes, but the personality of the person. Boys to Men indeed!


Blogger Carlos Alberto Silva said ... (1:36 PM) : 

I agree, really nice photos Scott! Just for curiosity, did you go to any photography course or you just have a natural touch?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:37 PM) : 

Wow...awesome that they start so young!



Blogger Carlos Alberto Silva said ... (1:37 PM) : 

PS: the boy looks so angry! Lol

Mutton busting... reason #1 not to let dad take the kids to a rodeo alone. When I was 8, 17 years ago, my dad threw me into the rodeo ring on a sheep. ::::shudders:::: At least they are wearing helmets nowadays.
I love the rodeo pictures!

The poor sheep! Great photos though.

so DSQUARED...they have been building their fashion empire off reworkings of this and other rugged blue collar oriented working men's uniforms...albeit the Canadian version... fabulousness is every and anywhere...if you care and are interested to look...what Scott demonstrates so well above the other street photographers out there...gauchos of Argentina!

The leather 'patches' and the fringe detail on the chaps is really great. I think I'll use the idea of it to embellish a pair of jeans this winter.

Heartwarming, the little boy holding the sheep.


Anonymous Dounia said ... (1:46 PM) : 

Really like the 1st one, he seems so serious yet so cute ;)


Blogger Lauren said ... (1:50 PM) : 

love the mutton busting! so fun to watch.


Blogger Barbora said ... (1:51 PM) : 

Scott, those pictures are amazing! Oh man, it feels like I am right there! What camera do you use?


Anonymous Holly said ... (1:53 PM) : 

These photos are brilliant good call Scott for your take on the "out west"...Hope there is more to come!


Blogger Heather said ... (1:54 PM) : 

The little ones are absolutely adorable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:09 PM) : 

Oh my god please please please argentinian gauchos? That would be beyond amazing - the belts and shoes they wear are just about the most incredible clothing moment ever! So inspiring!


Anonymous Cody said ... (2:21 PM) : 

Ahhh... Muttin Bustin. America's most entertaining/absurd sport.


Blogger jolie jamie said ... (2:38 PM) : 

I love these photos!! They are so clear and crisp! Great post Sart!


Blogger JP said ... (2:48 PM) : 

I love the pic of the little boy. He looks ready to tame that sheep again


Blogger sofiasophie said ... (3:18 PM) : 

their look!


Anonymous kagitsune said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Just watch... come spring, *everyone's* going to want refined cowboy style. You have a gift, Sart... to take something that many American's would consider trite, and through your camera lens, reveal the elegance and class. Maybe next time I visit my home town I'll have to catch rodeo for myself... :3


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (3:37 PM) : 

GREAT photos. Love the action shots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:39 PM) : 

little guy looks so cute ^^!


Blogger SunshineTax said ... (3:44 PM) : 

So fabulous to see you photograph life so far outside Fashion Week or a major metro. I love it!


Blogger Into the Fashion said ... (3:44 PM) : 

Rock Hudson in an old universal pictures movie: 'Bravo, as they say in texas....'


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:17 PM) : 

This is how they learn it - on sheep!? My daughter is so jealous (and going to raid the fields now...). Great pictures. Sabine x


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:40 PM) : 

i LOVE these! the look of determination on the little boy's face is fantastic. there is so much style- just wait til you see the cowgirls in a western pleasure class! the glitter puts taylor swift to shame!


Blogger dnqcnn said ... (4:42 PM) : 

Were you at the same rodeo as Garance? Looks great, been wearing my cowboyboots a lot myself, lately :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:46 PM) : 

Poor sheep? Oh, please!

Mutton bustin' is my favorite event at rodeos. Most of those kids practice and prepare for weeks. A few do get thrown into the arena, but not many any more.

Great picture of the bull rider. I'm loving this series.


Blogger amalie said ... (4:50 PM) : 

noway, i love that first picture.


Blogger Eden Kennedy Onassis said ... (4:55 PM) : 

Western wear has some of the craziest detailing you'll find anywhere. I'm always impressed by this blog, not just the photography, but your willingness to grow as a person through your vocation.


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (6:09 PM) : 

There's no denying when a photographer is good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:19 PM) : 

it's great to see images from the west for a change. it's a breath of fresh air!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 PM) : 

refreshing change here. love the black running stitches on the shirt. love the kids.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:12 AM) : 

Be sure to hit the Calgary Stampede in July. The whole city celebrates by wearing cowboy hats. I mean the WHOLE city dresses for the occasion. It's like a fever.
So glad to see you catching it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:31 AM) : 

I am a great admirer of your photos but these made me so sad. Using scared animals for "fun". I don´t like it!


Blogger Rose. said ... (10:29 AM) : 

The first boy seems to be ready for the conquest and the second one has such an amazing look: so brave and so determined !
I love those photos, they tell so many things !
Thank you for sharing !


Blogger Gidget Bananas said ... (11:43 AM) : 

Great action photos!!!


Anonymous Kathryn said ... (12:14 PM) : 

I love that you're showing different facets of fashion. It's amazing how you've captured to intensity of the moment in these photos. I really enjoy your work!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:35 PM) : 

Oh, Sartorialist. I saw only two comments that mentioned feeling sorry for the animals used/abused in these (undeniably awesome) shots. I know there were a lot more disapproving comments that for some reason were not allowed to be posted, my comment included. Suck it up, man, and just address them. Nobody expects everyone to agree on everything but simply avoiding a few mild words of criticism speaks volumes.....


Blogger A.M. said ... (3:17 PM) : 

very cool pictures, nice to see you taking photos away from the 'street' but still with your eye for the details. here are some great cowboy pictures you may enjoy:


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:20 PM) : 

Mutton busting? I thought it was called "riding woolies?"

Get on the sheep!
