Look Good, Feel Great with Cavender’s

Cav_DontJustWearIt.LiveIt_BWsolidI am about as far from a fashion model as any person in North America. I write a hunting blog for gosh sakes. I work from home about 43 weeks of the year out of a home office. I work about 5 more weeks of the year in the field generally in camouflage clothing hunting and testing gear. Three weeks out of the year I travel to outdoor shows like SHOT, Pheasant Fest, SCI and short trips to meet with clients. This year while preparing for SHOT Show I had a crisis looking at my closet. I lost some weight and realized that I haven’t bought clothes in about 3 years. I started looking around at various websites as I hate shopping for clothes in local stores.


I like great clothes, don’t get me wrong, but shopping is just not my thing, especially for clothes. At the same time I got an email from the team at Cavender’s asking me to test out a pair of boots and a pair of jeans. I felt like I had hit the lottery after looking at their website. I ordered a pair of jeans and boots and basically an entire week’s worth of clothes from Cavender’s for the entirety of SHOT show.


Cavender’s offers western wear clothes for men, women and kids. They offer 70 stores, more coming, and a tremendous website that is easy to navigate. I am looking forward to walking into and checking out one of the stores when I head to Kansas City next week for Pheasant Fest.



Searching the website was easy for me to find brands that I gravitate to like Wrangler, Cinch, Ariat, and Carhartt. Cavender’s offers lots of exclusive clothes produced specifically for their stores from these brands with the label of Cavender’s Exclusives and all at some really great prices. I chose five pairs of pants, five polo shirts to wear during the day, five dress shirts for evenings, a belt and a pair of boots. I was set for the entirety of SHOT show. It was really great to open up my suitcase each day with a very set plan and a daily mantra of Feel Great, Look Fantastic and it played into my daily mindset each day at SHOT.


Feeling Great and Looking Fantastic has advantages in how you approach the day. I had friends say, “Kevin, you have never looked so happy and healthy.” I felt great and I am healthy, but I had a smile on throughout the day. I felt comfortable each and every day because I knew the clothes that I had on fit well, looked great and were amazingly comfortable. Do clothes make the man? I don’t know, but what I can say is that great clothes certainly made this man feel more confident, have more fun and smile throughout each day and I have Cavender’s to thank for that.
