Last week we added some new Men’s Lucky Jeans closeouts to the site. This week is for the ladies. Included in this line are two Lil’ Maggie jeans, a Classic Rider, a Sweet N Low, and a Lola Boot Cut jean, all for just $59.97. Check out our Women’s Lucky Jeans page to check them out.
And as a bonus, we’ve expanded our current Lucky Jeans coupon to include these jeans. So, for an additional $10 off, just enter the coupon code lucky10off during checkout. Coupon expires July 18, 2008.
We also had a rating of 3 horseshoes for Shirts, Belts and Jeans. They mention the hand-tooled leather purses, sequined belts we carry in store, as well as the Montana Silversmith belt buckles, Panhandle Slim shirts, Cruel Girl and Wrangler Jeans we carry both online and in stores.
What is Kyra Sedgwick’s favorite must have fashion item? I would assume it is her husband Kevin Bacon – but I guess according to the July issue of InStyle, I am wrong. The star of the TNT hit series The Closer told InStyle that she considers herself to be a collector when it comes to cowboy boots.
Back in the 80s when her hubbie was rockin his own pair of boots in Footloose, Kyra found a pair of red Lucchese boots that she says are still her favorite boots today. Check out the July issue of InStyle to see more of Kyra’s favorite things. ..sorry to tell you there are no pics of Kevin in the article.
I checked with our stores and found that we only have a few Men’s Lucchese boots in stock at our Stockyards (405-235-9536) location, but as always, they said they’d be willing to special order any Lucchese boots if they didn’t have what you want. If you wan to start a collection (and save a little money) there are many styles of Justin Boots and Ariat Boots online and in all of our stores. While me may all like Krya’s choice in boots, we may not all have TV star money to buy them with.
In the meantime, I dug up some more information in Lucchese Boots and wanted to share. The Lucchese Boot Company (in case you were wondering how to say it – it is Lu-K-C) was established in San Antonio, Texas in 1883 by Sam Lucchese Sr. and his brothers just 3 years after arriving in America. In the early 1960s Sam Lucchese Jr. took over the business with the goal to create a perfect fitting boot. According to Sam, “If you cut leather for your boots in the same way you would carve up a meat carcass for your dinner table, you will be in good shape.” I really have no idea what exactly he means, but I am pretty sure his Thanksgiving turkey was carved to perfection – and clearly the man was not a vegetarian. His knack for carving leather led to boots that are made primarily by hand and gained national recognition for the company. Still today they are celebrated as a one-of-a kind boot with extraordinary comfort, quality and fit.

Hi there, Langstonsblog.com readers. It’s a great pleasure to be the very first Guest Blogger in the history of the Langston’s Blog.
My name is Paul Bonds. I have been fighting bulls for eighteen years. I am 34 years old and have a fifteen-year old son named Shane. He gets to rodeo with me in the summer.
Fitness is an important part of my life. When I am not fighting, I am racing my bicycle for the Oklahoma City Velo Club. Rodeo has left me the available time to get in shape, which is extremely important for my job. I have always thought that if I take care of my body, it will take care of me.
In the winter, I fight the Super Bull Enterprise Rent-A-Car Tour PBR. This year I got to fight in the Memphis Grizzlies’ building as well as the home of the American Hockey League’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (PA) Penguins, the minor-league affiliate of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. (Editor’s note: GREAT Season, Pens!) The latter building left me with a few bumps: One of Sonny Smith’s bulls had Dan Henricks on his back. Dan rode him for 82 points, and it was my job to get the bull’s attention after the buzzer went off. I went in a little too slow and the bull picked me up and polished the bucking shoots with my back. A broken rib wasn’t too bad to get out of it, I just needed to get back my breath, and back to work I went.
I am looking forward to being a regular guest blogger for langstonsblog.com. Check back every couple of months or so for more bull fighting stories from the road.
This week at Langstonsblog.com, we’re instituting what we hope will become a regular feature – the Guest Blogger. Along with our efforts to bring you news about great new products, promotional items, and local events, we’re also trying to get some perspective on the world of western wear and its devotees.
Our first guest blogger is a great example. As a Professional Bullfighter, Paul Bonds has taken more than his share of lumps. But it’s worth it, in Paul’s words, to be able to “live a childhood dream” every day of his career.
Paul has fought in some of the biggest rodeos in the U.S., Canada, and Italy, and regularly participates in rodeos put on by the PBR, IPRA, and PRCA. He’s fought in the National High School Finals, the PCB Finals, and has fought in the International Finals Rodeo five times.
For our first guest blog, Paul was kind enough to send us his first entry, which you can read above.
Hi folks. Yes, it’s been too long since we’ve blogged, but there’s a reason. We’re currently in the process of moving the entire Langston’s internet operation to our very own building! Yes, it’s been hard, but the payoff will be enormous. We’ve still got quite a bit to do, but things are looking great. The new paint smell is almost gone, and we’ve definitely got plenty of room to grow.
With all this activity going on, we’ve still managed to get quite a few cool new items on the site. It’s not hard to tell that summer is right around the corner with all of the great t-shirts, skirts, and tank tops from Rock and Roll Cowgirl and Rock and Roll Cowboy, both from Panhandle Slim. Here’s just a few examples:
We’ve also been working hard to get a whole lot of new Justin Boots uploaded. There are some great styles for men, women, and the kids. Be sure to check them out on our Justin Boots page. Here’s a few examples:
