Replies to This Discussion  specializes in 19th styled shirts (& skirts) for hot weather.  This very modern fabric is supposed to offer superior wicking and cooling. 

I wore mine in Honduras and although I cannot say that I felt cooler I was not as miserably hot as I expected which may mean that it was doing what it was supposed to do.  This fabric does seem to keep me warmer in Alaskan winters than cotton does.  The fabric is slightly stretchy like polyester and not stiff enough for me successfully attach a starched collar.  The sleeves do slide up easily but could stand the addition of false buttons or cufflinks.  

Watch for their fairly frequent sales. 

Speaking of sales:

Wahmaker clothes on Amazon: 

Wahmaker seems to produce the sturdiest, best fitting, most flattering, buckle-back trousers available today.  I wish my mundane pants were as comfortable.  Their sizing is very consistent so once you know what you wear they are easy to order or even buy off Ebay. is still sturdy, priced even lower, but their sizing seems inconsistent so I recommend only buying off the rack where you can try them on.  Their vest can be nice and their shirts are sometimes thinner and cooler while still pressing pretty well. 

Possibly the best know "cowboy hat" maker in the world is Stetson.  Since 1865 Stetson History they are still going strong today: Stetson Official Site

El Presidente 100X Premier Cowboy Hat

Derby hats were apparently the most popular hat on the frontier, which Stetson also made.  is having a $5.00 off special.  Just apply coupon code Five Off when checking out so if you have been wanting some cooler SP clothes on the cheap this is your chance.  I have heard mixed reviews about this clothes seller.  They are very inexpensive but buttons off fly off the first time that you wear their clothes.  One practical gentleman simply re-sews the buttons immediately and is otherwise happy with the quality for the price.

If you all end up in Tombstone, AZ (which you should) there are many good western/Victorian clothing shops with surprisingly good prices but be sure to stop in "Poncho Vega's Guns & Cowboy Leathers" who also buys and sells good used period western clothes.
