Brand It

Welcome to our second (the first being MY STABLE LIFE’s Shane Doan autographed jersey) online contest! We’re going to kick this off in high fashion. Cowboy fashion, that is. After all, what says Western more than a pair of western jeans? Heck, even Robert Redford got grief for not wearing an authentic cowboy brand in The Horse Whisperer. Just because we’re pleased as punch that you’ve tuned into our new website, we’re going to give away three iconic Cruel Girl brand western style jeans, in your style, in your size. All you have to do is let us know – in the Comment section below – what your favorite western brand or logo is – it could be tack, clothing, ranch brands, whatever has a connection to the western lifestyle.

We’ll randomly choose three winners and the lucky recipients will be wearing a pair of these jeans lickety-split.

I guarantee you will look this good wearing them. (trailer, horse and long hair not included)

Contest closes Apr. 26

    I have three pairs of cruel girl jeans but my absolute favs were 20X Tulsa jeans which they no longer produce also a bit of a fan of H brand boots – find they fit me just fine.

    I like any kind of jean that fits right. (kinda hard to find for a small body). But i look at the Crul Gril low rise, slim fit and boot cut jeans.

    Two of my favourite brands are Alberta Beef and Certified Angus Beef. In my mind there’s nothing that speaks more “western lifestyle” than cattle, ranches, good steak and beer! Yee Haw….

    As far as western fashion goes, there’s nothing more iconic in my mind that that old Wrangler “W”. It’s been good seeing it evolve and grow with the times…but not too much.

    I have such a wide variety of favorite brands but I am going to go with Q Baby from Wrangler as I have 3 pair of them.

    I’ve been hooked on Wrangler for 30 years, but with the addition of the new names like Cruel Girl, I think I’ve found a new favourite! I’ve worn out a bunch of Cruel Girls already, and love them! I think sometimes they are made just for me :)

    My favorite brand is Pandhandle Slim. They made tough and flashy clothes. They’re tough enough for the western life and flashy for the show! Just good moment come to my mind!

    I love my Ariat boots (good support and NO need to break them in) and the Q Baby jeans. I’m also partial to Alberta Beef (especially now that BBQ season is here).

    As a full-time instructor/trainer, there are certain brands I count on for quality, durability and comfort. That would be Weaver, Wrangler and my Alberta Boot cowboy boots.

    I love My Ariat boots & Intimissi Lingerie :)

    I have to pick a favorite?!!! That’s not fair. Shirts – love the 20X with X-tra long sleeves – I’m part orangutan! Jeans, I’ve got a couple pairs of Cruel Girl, but also love my Wrangler Q Babies – stretch is a beautiful thing!

    Always gone with fit, regardless of brand, but have now acquired 3 pairs of Q Baby jeans by Wrangler. Need to try the Cruel Girl brand I guess. Also have several pairs of Ariat boots, always a good fit and good quality.

    All I wear is Cruel jeans, they are durable and comfortable. You also can’t beat ariat and lucchese boot , they are so comfortable and can be worn all day.

    I have found the Wrangler jeans very comfortable and I love how they come in a long length for us tall girls. I am very fond of Ariat and Roper as I have sweatshirts, vests, boots, etc., and find they wear very well. I just purchased the new weaver air cinch and my horse seems very comfortable. Anything to do with the western lifestyle makes me happy. There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh hay and my horse!

    I love my Lucchese boots! and paired with a pair of my Tuff jeans, Wrangler or Cruel Girl “Stacey”s, I’m in heaven!

    Cruel Girl jeans fit the best and wear the longest!! Their new “Arena fit” jeans and shirts are great to rope in or rodeo. Cruel Girl has found a way to match function, fit and style. I wear jeans almost everyday to work and I ride every night, so I have A LOT of jeans and most of the are Cruel Girl!!

    My favorits jeans would have to be the carhartt women traditional fit boot cut they fit amazingly! In boots it would have to be the Juystin Gypsys!

    If I had to choose one brand it would have to be Ariat they are the best boots around no need to break them in just pull them on a get in the saddle…. For jeans it would have to be my Cruel girl “Mattie” jeans. A great fit both in the show pen and in the barn……

    My absolute favorite riding boots are Ariat’s Fat Baby’s. They are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned, and when I first bought them, I didn’t have to break them in. It was like I’d been wearing them for years. I will never buy any other brand.

    I absolutely love Professional’s Choice for tack. I use their saddle pads and splint and bell boots. They are awesome quality and look awesome. When it comes to jeans though, I love Cruel Girl!

    I think the Wrangler brand is one of the iconic western brands of all times. The original 13MWZ can’t be beat. I have an original vintage pair that are Bright Pink.

    Roper’s definately say “western” to me. How can anyone live without a pair? You can ride in them, work in them, dance in them, and even sleep in them they are so comfortable!!

    I have a pair of Cruel girl jeans and I’m a heavy girl and long legged these are the only ones that fit me and they are very comfortable to go out on the town or go ride all day.

    I would love to own a Vic Bennett Saddle!!

  27. Sabrina Kirdie Avatar

    I would have to say my favorite brand (at this very moment) would have to be the Babcock Ranch brand….because it adorns our new stallions right hip!

    My all time favorite brand is the famous King Ranch running W. As for jeans a low rise and stretch are a necessity Cruel Girls & Wranglers are my favorites.

    My favorite is weaver tack and the wrangler jeans hard to find my size because i am small in the waist, and I also love my Alberta cowboys especially.

    John Deere and Johnny Cash — tradition of the real West of course!

    Q-Baby by wrangler, snug fit with the right leg length for us tall girls. With full time riding season just around the corner, jeans are on everyone’s mind.

    I love Cruel Girl Jeans…they are the most comfortable riding jean EVER! My fav style has been discontinued…and I had to throw them out just the other day..as they were worn completely out! It was Cruel!!! I am a huge fan of the low rise slim fit boot cut. While there are so many great names in tack out there..I think my favourite connection to the Western lifestyle is my APHA mare..Quincy Quick N Fancy. We have been together for 5 years now..and she is the best money I have ever spent on myself!! I love her!!

  40. Kathy Avatar

    Any brand that has stretch jeans for us who have not aged as well as others but still have the love of riding and working outdoors. I love my Circle Y saddle but on the look out for a good reining saddle. Love my Ariat boots and my Justin boots.

  41. Carolyn Avatar

    I love my Sean Ryon saddle and my Professional Choice Sports Medicine boots. I love wearing Ariat boots and of course, Cruel Girl jeans and blouses.

  42. Sandy Lang Avatar

    I have always counted on and love Wrangler jeans, since I was a child. I own a few designs of wrangler jeans which I enjoy wearing. I’ve never tried Cruel jeans before. Maybe if I win a pair I will realize what others are talking about!

    My favs are my Cruel Girl low rise relaxed fit, they look like mens jeans and fit like women’s, next are my new Wrangler Houston low rise slim fits with the fancy new back pockets and last but not least I wouldn’t go anywhere without my Boulet’s, best Canadian made boots ever.
