That was an interesting story, and interesting man.

I like how flamboyance can earn its place among Western-types. Dudes, so to speak.

Actually, if you must be pulled over on a Texas back road, he'd be among your best choices of law enforcement officer.

This reminds me of one of my favorite Texas expressions, "all hat and no cowboy", meaning that the intended subject is all flash and no substance.

This website puts it nicely: [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]
I have received some suggested corrections on the expression ``All Hat, No Cowboy.'' Some people say it's supposed to be ``All Hat, No Cattle.'' Others say it's supposed to be ``All Hat, No Ranch'' or ``All Hat, No Herd.'' It's a real cutting-edge issue. I think any version serves the purpose.
Both expressions capture the same meaning though you are right that 'cattle' is more popular.
