It is hard to think about country music and fashion without thinking about George Strait. He is a fixture, an icon. His look was featured in People this month. Want to get the look for yourself, or for your man?
A few days ago I talked about the hot men featured in People Magazine’s article on the Men of Country Music. It got me to thinking about our men…husbands, boyfriends, brothers, friends…let’s outfit them and get them looking their best. Here are some of my favorite shirts right now…
The annual Spring Jam is tomorrow and this year it features two of the biggest names in Red Dirt music, the Randy Rogers Band and the Eli Young Band. We’ll be hanging with Panhandle Slim at their “Shirt Swap” booth. It’s a great event where you can trade in the shirt off your back for a brand new Panhandle Slim shirt. All the shirts Panhandle Slim gets will be donated to charity. In addition, we’ll be handing out coupons for 20% off Panhandle Slim shirts purchased at our online store in the month of July.
Great music, free shirts for charity, and 20% off Panhandle Slim purchases at langstons.com. You can’t beat it!

Just a note to let you know we’ll be doing some catching up this week. After doing some maintenance recently, we’re ready to get back into blogging after about a month off. Over the next few days we’ll be putting up some older posts by the Rooster that got lost in the shuffle and introducing some new blog features, including a weekly special exclusive to our blog readers. So, be sure to stay tuned for some Red Dirt updates and some great deals on new and featured items in our stores…
Oklahoma City recently joined the NBA family with the relocation and rebranding of the Seattle Superonics. Now known as The Thunder, the team plays its 41 home games in the heart of our home town.
In light of this event, American Way magazine has showcased the city in two separate articles across its last two issues. The first article, in its February 1st issue, includes “what to do and see” recommendations from several local personalities including civic leaders, business owners, and media. From French bistros to dive bars and “cowboy museums” to crew style rowing, the list of recommendations provides a great cross section of the varied cultural and lifestyle attractions available in the city.
Which brings us to Linda Cavanaugh, a long time resident and Oklahoma City media personality who serves as an anchor on KFOR-TV’s news channel 4 . When it comes to western wear, Linda proclaims “Langston’s is it.” Specifically, she is directing readers to our Stockyards City store, which is just a short drive or trolley ride from downtown where the Thunder plays their home games at the Ford Center. Located in a historically renovated building, the store serves as both a retail store and tourist attraction. With many western themed businesses in the Stockyards, run by skilled craftsman with a passion for western culture and lifestyle, Stockyards City is actually a great place for all things western.
For a more in depth look at the NBA in Oklahoma City, the latest issue of American Way magazine contrasts the NBA’s newest venue with one of its most revered, New York’s Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks. Titled City Game, Cowboy Style, the piece is an enlightening and in depth look at two very different markets that are now linked by one great game. It certainly has convinced me to make sure I catch a game at the Garden soon, if for nothing else, for the hot dog on the way in. (Speaking of, anyone think we can get those guys at Coney Island on Main Street to open a stand outside the Ford Center?…)
Just stop by one of our four metro Oklahoma City locations (Stockyards City, I-240 and Shields, Midwest City, and Yukon) and purchase any Wrangler items and you’ll receive a voucher for free tickets to the IFR. It’s one of the great rodeo events of the year and you can go for free just by purchasing that pair of jeans or western shirt by Wrangler that you wanted, but didn’t get for Christmas. Consider it a present from us to you.
Today marks what is commonly considered the busiest shipping day of the year. We know you’re probably worn out from camping all night to be the first one to grab that new 60″ 1080p Plasma screen TV so you can catch every grain of dust and drop of sweat of the next PBR event from the comfort of your couch. You’re probably a little sore from battling the masses for the next great Elmo doll that they never seem to stock enough of. Or maybe you’re just too full to move after stuffing yourself with all that turkey and, well, stuffing. It’s possible that in all that chaos you completely forgot to get those jeans you get for you in laws, those new boots your promised your spouse, or maybe you just don’t quite fit into your own jeans anymore after the start of the holiday season.
Well, don’t get up. Head on over to the online store and shop our great selection of jeans, cowboy boots, and western shirts. We even have a few western gifts this year for that person that deserves something a little more unique. And the best part is, we’ll ship it for free. No minimums, required purchases, or any other hoops to jump through. Just fill your shopping cart with as little or as much western wear goodies as you want, select Ground as your shipping method, and enter freeship08 in the coupon field at checkout, or just click the link below and it will be entered for you:
