Long coats or “dusters” were common for cowboys, who spent months on the trail and encountered extreme weather.hats varied from derbys to sombero’s but the classic cowboy hat you see in most westerns was also worn.moustache’s were very common,I doubt if long hair was really very common but both Hicock and Custer were known to be vain about their looks and their long hair…Tombstone and Lonesome Dove are two movies that probably come close to authenic old west dress.[quote=“Silvanito, post:8, topic:543”]The long coats you often see in spaghettis, they were common for real in those days?
And the hats on your pictures don’t quite look like the ones in old Hollywood movies.
And another thing, many men apparently had a moustache in those days, and also really long hair. Was that very common you think?[/quote]
