Everything you need to complete your cool, Texas cowboy look and lifestyle can be purchased from Texas based companies.

I love shopping local and when I can't buy direct from an El Paso based company, I still try and keep things Texan.

Here are some Texas companies that can help you "cowboy up".

First of all, every Cowboy needs a 10 gallon hat, right? For that, look to Texas' very own Stetson. The hat legends may have started up north but today they're based in Garland.

Cowboy boots are also a must and there are many bootmakers bootmakers in the west Texas town of El Paso.

Next, a good pair of jeans. Texas Standard, in Austin can you help you there.

Now, on to the hardware. Mossberg shotguns are made in Eagle Pass. Their shotguns will keep those mangy rustlers away from your herd.

For your trusty 6 shooter, look to Cimarron Firearms in Fredericksburg. They not only make sidearms, they also have cool, retro designs that look straight outta the 1800's.

If you have a Texas sized sweet tooth, you're covered there too. Snickers, Skittles and Starburst are all made in Waco.

For that parched and dusty throat, we've got beer thanks to Shiner, Texas..

Need something to flavor up that bland, range food?

Throw a little Pace Picante Sauce, (made in Paris, Texas), on it.

We take our Picante sauce seriously in these parts.

If you are a combination Cowboy/fighter pilot, we got you covered there too. Just swing by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, Plant 4, in Fort Worth and get an F-35 Lightning II.

They're kind of expensive but they'll keep your airspace clear.
