When we buy clothes we are looking not just at function but at how much they represent ourselves. If you have an extrovert character you will more likely wear something that attracts attention, compared to the quiet achiever who dresses in more sober tones.
Someone who is more careful with their money will look at the inherent value of whatever they buy. For example, it makes more sense to spend a little more on something that is made with quality and will last much longer than buying the cheapest on offer only to watch it fall apart in a few months. Making sensible choices and clothing yourself in quality gives you a better sense of yourself.
Then you have to look at matching well. Finding the right shirt to go with the trousers that suit the boots and the belt all takes time. So where to begin? When you find something you love, like a beautiful belt, you’ll probably already have those things that match it as it appeals to your sense of yourself; if you don’t then it’s time to go shopping and find those things that speak of who you are.
This has been one of my favourite weekends of the year, as we have just passed the Winter Solstice and the days now start to get longer so we can begin to look forward to Spring. It’s a good time to take stock and get ready for the warmer days ahead.
Having been in the shoe business, supplying retailers around Australia and New Zealand for more than 20 years, we knew change was afoot in terms of the growth of online shopping and the affect it would have on traditional retailers but we never envisaged the incredibly dramatic transformation that is now taking place.
We launched The Western Boot Barn just one month ago and the reaction has been amazing. Literally thousands of you have been visiting the site and buying boots, confirming the pent up demand for good quality western and biker boots being made available here in Australia at the best possible prices.
The Western Boot Barn Facebook page was launched with the idea of showing that we don’t only sell boots but have other interests just like you. This has also won many fans, confirming our belief that there are many of you looking to share good stories and great music.
Now the challenge is to continue evolving and improving.
We have just introduced a fantastic new feature on the website called Find Your Boots. All you need to do, is enter your size and click ‘Find By Size’ to display all the styles we currently have available to fit you. How simple is that?
We will soon be shipping in more stock to fill the gaps in inventory and introduce more new styles. So you will have even more to choose from.
The Western Boot Barn website is there for you, so your suggestions are highly valued and always welcome. If there are some styles of boots you would like to see in the collection or if you see a way the site can be improved or if you have a story or photo you want to share, then please get in touch with us through the Contact section or on the Facebook page. Either way, we look forward to hearing from you.
