California Cowboy Apparel

When we discover that a clothing brand is heavily influenced by the maverick lifestyle of Hunter S Thompson here at Coolector HQ, you better believe that said brand has rapidly elevated itself to the top table of our favourite clothing stores. Well, that’s exactly what we have on our hands with California Cowboy and their magnificent line up of shirting, tees and accessories which don’t just look great but have various integrated design features that set them apart from the competition.

California Cowboy aim to create apparel which is a catalyst for conversation and they do this by delivering bold, innovative clothing which will get people talking about it because of how it has been designed and some of the more unusual elements about it. If you’re the sort that likes to strike up conversation with strangers and make new friends at the drop of a hat, the awesome line up of men’s apparel from California Cowboy is what you should have in your closet.

They’ve got a great array of pieces to choose from at California Cowboy but some are, quite frankly, too good to be ignored and we’ve picked out our favourite pieces from this first class American brand below:

California Cowboy High Water Shirt – $135

The cornerstone piece of California Cowboy’s apparel line up, the High Water Shirt ($135) is a piece after our own heart here at The Coolector (not purely because it has a pocket specifically for carrying craft beer). This is California Cowboy’s signature updated version of the classic Hawaiian shirt. It boasts a super-soft terry lining which can be used for mopping the brow during hot days at the beach and an array of special pockets for your phone, bottle opener, and frosty beverage.

Available in an impressive array of different styles, you’re sure to find one that fits in perfectly with your own style persuasions and, take it from us, you’ve never had a shirt quite as functional and unique as the High Water in your closet before. Each one is hand stitched in Santa Ana California, and California Cowboy have painstakingly designed the High Water with a pleasing, slim fit and streamlined features, whilst also arming it to the teeth with style and solutions to problems most men today create. Original hand painted prints are used for the designs on these shirts and they are literal pieces of art, transposed onto the incredibly soft, cotton-lyocell fabric.

These brilliant High Water Shirts from California Cowboy are sure to become one of your go to pieces of apparel all year round and if, like us, you’ve got more than a slight penchant for craft beer, you’re going to be overworking the integrated beer pocket as well. The terry cloth lining is 25% more absorbent than regular cotton so it is the ideal ally to have with you for those day trips to the beach and, quite possibly, our new favourite piece of apparel here at Coolector HQ. ($135)

California Cowboy High Sierra Shirt – $148

Designed for the apres-ski set who love a spot of fun in the bars after hitting the slopes, the awesome looking High Sierra Shirts from California Cowboy ($148) expertly commingle warmth with style and do so with some aplomb. Each shirt boasts brilliantly soft flannel and thermal lining to keep the elements in their place and this core feature is joined by special pockets for your phone, bottle opener and frosty beverage.

If, like us at The Coolector, your closet is pretty much filled with checked shirts, you’re going to be in your element with the High Sierra from California Cowboy. With a great selection to choose from and at a great price when you consider the materials used and unparalleled functionality, it’s not difficult to see why this is one of the American brand’s most popular pieces. These American made shirts are quality through and through and make use of Japanese Flannel and Portuguese brushed twill which are both fabrics ideally suited to hitting the apres ski bars on the mountain because they are great insulators.

With some super cool, integrated features in these shirts such as a reinforced bottle pocket, a sunglasses loop, a water resistant, hunting inspired dry pocket which allows for safe tech storage to encourage extreme apres ski booze ups and all shirts include beer koozie and bottle opener within a specially designed pocket. If you love to hit the slopes and, more importantly, the bars, the High Sierra Shirt from California Cowboy is definitely one for you.
