I thought it would be SO fun to do an English and Western fashion blog for high-end and budget friendly brands!
To begin, your head! The most budget friendly helmet in my opinion is the Troxel Sport. It normally retails for around $20-$30 which is a really good deal for an effective helmet! For a higher end brand, I personally love Samshields! Both of these helmets can be used for English or Western. If you are showing Western, you usually wear a hat. One budget friendly hat is the Bullhide 4x Premium Wool Felt Kingsman Cowboy hat from Schnieders. This hat retails for about $50. For a higher end hat, I love hats from Rods!
For English shirts, I always look through Dover Saddlery's website and go to "Polos and Casual" and change the price to "low-high" this will but all of the low cost shirts first! For higher end I love Aztec Diamond Equestrian on Instagram. When looking for cheaper Western shirts, I always look through amazon! When I look for shirts to spend some money on I just google "custom western show shirts" or go to showmeagain.com.
My favorite higher-end breeches are Tailored Sportsman and for budget-friendly any Dover brand stays relatively cheap! My all time favorite jeans are Kimes Ranch and Miss-Me's... I will not wear anything else! Although, they are both on the pricey side I totally recommend them. For working jeans and jeans I know will get dirty I just stick to good ole Levi's!
One of my favorite overall apparel place is Noble Outfitters! They always have clean and simple looks (my favorite)!
