Old West Performers Hats

Friends of the last best west

I had a new white cowboy hat that I paid ten dollars for and new pants that cost twelve dollars and a good shirt and fancy boots. Lord I was proud of those clothes! When my sister saw me she said: ‘Take your pants out of your boots and put your coat on. You look like an outlaw.’  

I told her to go to hell. And I never did like her after that.  – Teddy Blue Abbott, Cowboy 1882

Classic Suede Leather Coats and Jackets


Last Best West Leather Coats – You won’t find these buckskin coats and jackets at your nearest mall.

Working with a factory we have designed our leather coats and jackets to be functional and true to the pioneer days when a good homemade suede or leather coat was what you wore. We hope our coats reflect some of that homespun commitment to quality at an affordable price. Our classic designs are timeless and will look good with clothes from 2023 or circa 1823. see all coats

Stylish and functional, most of the coats and jackets are made from buckskin/suede for a reason. Suede will stay soft and subtle in the cold, keeping you cozy on cool days. Most of our coats are named in remembrance of the early days of North America. For people and frontiersmen and events that helped shape Democracy in North America. And the late 18th through the 19th century are full of firsts.

Don’t follow the herd – strike out on your own wearing some clothing history from The Last Best West!

Excerpt from
The Outlaw’s Lament

Grease up yer guns Outlaw’s
And cinch them on tight. . .
There’ll be blood a runnin’,
In town before night.

There’ll be gun’s a blazin’
And singin’ with lead
Tonight you’ll be drinkin’
Your drinks with the dead.

Never touch a Cowboy’s hat
