ABOVE: West Texas Slim, of the Texas Wild Bunch, says he's had his mustache for 20 to 25 years. It's the look he's going for.
You know what would go well with that cowboy hat?
There are plenty of cowboys at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. There are also plenty of people who just look like cowboys. Even those who have never been in the saddle before can pull off a genuine Wyatt Earp with a pair of boots, a bolo tie, a stiff collar shirt, a weathered trench coat and a hard look.
But perhaps the most iconic cowboy look of all can't be bought in the store. And in some cases, as we found out, takes a lifetime to achieve. Nothing says rodeo like a well grown mustache.
Check out some of the mustachioed gentlemen we found at the rodeo on Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012.
