when I was in cuernavaca morelos, mexico a couple of years ago I found this leather “cowboy” outfit in the local museum.it must date from mid 19th century and was probably only used for “sunday best” and celebrations. the owner must have made a few girls swoon when swaggering around town in this, but I could easily see it being worn today. the detail in the leather work is almost haute-couture. the shirt is pretty beautiful too don’t you think?
