Speaking of cowboy boots...one of the first persons I met when moving to Santa Fe was Wendy, the owner of Back at the Ranch, a maker and retailer of custom cowboy boots here in town. For over 30 years she has made RTW and custom boots at her workshop in El Paso, TX staffed by a third & fourth generation of Mexican boot makers. She has about 700 pairs on-hand for sale in her old adobe retail store. Hanging on the walls are every imaginable exotic skin and in any color. She has great stories of special orders for weddings, government officials, actors, musicians and a pair for a guy who owns a ranch up in Colorado named Ralph.

Anyone know online Chimala stockists besides Mr Porter?
I believe 180 The Store is their US rep (or one of them). They carry some things in thier store. The site seems to only show womens and a smattering of unisex things. But since they rep them, perhaps they can sell other things and/or direct you

This crowd may have some good recs. Looking to add some simple jewelry and want to start with cuff or bracelet to go with easy, workwear kinda fits. Think beat up jeans, fatigues, or shorts with white tees layered with a chore coat, flannel, camp collar shirts, and some canvas sneaks, slip ons, huaraches, or loafers. Any good makers/shops you can recommend for this kinda thing? Ideally want something in a gold tone vs silver, think it looks better on my paler complexion.

RIP. Have you emailed them to see if they have any stockists? Or better yet, figure out who their supplier is, both of those companies just resell from a factory, you may be able to buy direct from the factory

Most of the jewelry I'm familiar with is silver-toned. The only gold-toned bracelet I can think of right now -- without actually buying gold -- is Giles & Brother. For me, some of the designs are a little too heavy-handed with their masculine references, such as the bent railroad spikes. But they have some more subtle pieces.


There's also James Colarusso. He has some simple gold bracelets. But since they're made from actual gold, the prices are expensive. His stuff can be found at 180, although for some reason I don't see his stuff at their online store right now. I find a lot of the brands at 180 go well together. They carry EG, Orslow, Chimala, Visvim, etc. So if you like those brands, you might also like Colarusso.

When shopping for jewelry, my first stops are usually Reliquary in San Francisco, Fallow in Australia, and Self Edge. If you're willing to do a silver-toned bracelet, I think Native American cuff bracelets work really well. I sometimes wear two stacked Native American bracelets with the outfits you're describing. One bracelet is from Self Edge (unfortunately now sold out) and another from Medicine Man Gallery. Chipeta also sells some really nice things.

My two bracelets are pictured below. There's also a leather Hermes bracelet pictured here. If you're looking for an affordable, warm-toned bracelet, that can be an option, as the design comes with either silver or gold-colored hooks.

Might not be everyone’s cup of tea,but I bought Hermes jumbo leather hook bracelet for my gf a while ago. She wasn’t wearing it much so I took it for my own and have enjoyed adding it in.

Thanks guys, this Giles cuff in brass looks pretty good. No railroad spike or bullet casing haha. Might be cool to combo with a leather wrap like those above.
