If you are out west and looking for western wear, this is the place. Our entire group grabbed cowboy boots. Wonderful service and great selection.

After seeing the signs for miles we were excited to go but it was pretty expensive and too glitzy for what we were looking for so went to Sheplers in Denver instead which really is cowboy heaven!

You know as you're driving to Steamboat Springs that you'll probably have to stop at this store, since you pass seemingly endless yellow signs telling you how good they are! It's a fun western-style shop with great customer service. Items are certainly not cheap, but I was excited to have my new cowgirl belt...until I got home and it said... More

Thank you so much for your review! We really appreciate hearing feedback from customers. We're sorry you're disappointed that your new belt was made in China. We work hard to provide products that are made in the USA (we believe strongly in keeping industry here), but unfortunately, finding such items is difficult. Especially if we want to keep our prices... More

Your visit to Steamboat Springs CO isn't over till you shop at FM Light & Sons for real clothes for the real West. I found authentic western labels like Stetson hats, Old Gringo boots, and lots of brands the local ranchers live & workthe in. Prices are a bit higher because of Steamboat's rather distant mountain location, but well worth... More
