1001 Black Men–#60

Although they were common in the 1800s, Black cowboys are a rare sight in 2010. But they still exist, and when I see a brother dress head to foot in western gear, I always take notice…like in the New Orleans airport back in July of this year. Between the high temperatures and the even higher humidity, I couldn’t quite figure out how a western and jacket with a bolo tie cinched up to the neck could possibly be comfortable summer attire; but, then again, sometimes style just has to trump more practical concerns like the weather. I dedicate today’s drawing to all those brothers who dress for winter in the summer and for summer in the winter, simply out of their sheer commitment to looking fly.
