Our Story

Richard’s Town and Country Barber and Boot Shop was a unique establishment. You could get both your hair cut and have your name stamped on the back of a western belt by the same barber and walk out in a brand new pair of snake skin boots. Those were the “Urban Cowboy” days when everyone had a pair of cowboy boots even if they only were worn on the weekends. 

As fashions began to change he knew that his shop must change accordingly. Living in the hub of the East Texas oil field he saw that safety toe footwear and work clothing were in constant demand.  He decided to add a line of safety toe work boots to the shop. That decision secured his future as he began to sell work clothing and safety toe boots exclusively. He traveled all over the Ark-La-Tex with a trailer that was built just for selling boots and work clothes. 

Today I own and operate The Workingman’s Outfitter and along with my daughter and a small dedicated staff we still hold true to the ideals that my father valued. A sincere desire to offer quality goods at prices a workingman can afford.
