We barely covered why this was one of a few trends that popped up everywhere during men and women fashion week.
The West was a simple of American spirit since the gold rush (and now better job prospects) drew us to California.

What could be more American? Odd the forecast was for less cowhide early this year but it looks like American spirit is still in full force. Other brands to embrace cow hide include Calvin Klien, Ashley Williams, House of Holland and Balmain. Yep, not just American brands are getting into Western wear.
So dorn the cow this fall and watch vegans cringe.
