The American West is a microcosm that encapsulates the raw elements of the country. The landscape is vast and varied; forested mountain ranges give way to desert plains, rolling hills and farmland stretching to the Pacific Ocean. Centuries ago, it attracted hard-working people — ranchers, miners, cowboys and loggers — whose livelihoods were connected directly to the land. The strong-willed spirit of its early denizens is still apparent in cities such as Missoula, Sacramento and San Antonio, where individual-thinking and entrepreneurship is valued over complacent conformity.
Created out of necessity, clothing unique to this region is rooted in functionality and durability: boots for riding horses and ranch work, hats to protect from sun and storm, shirts that wouldn’t snag buttons in the brush, warm coats for frigid winters. Over the years, these products have endured, not only as utilitarian garments, but also as rugged symbols of a place and its spirit.
Bolstering the reach of these garments, Mr. Porter’s new Kingsman collection — which celebrates the upcoming film Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle — assembles a range of essential western garments ideal for autumn in any region. Featuring heritage brands like Stetson and Lucchese, among others, it’s a dose of classic Americana straight from the source.
