wild west frontier cowboys

Love these swarthy frontiersmen/ cowboys and their relaxed layered look and also their on-trend fur coats.  

Tried to find some modern versions but despite the fact that I have seen them everywhere, images have eluded me when I really need them.

1885 Eastern American

And look at this, from 1885 America to this smart little fashion item by geestreepte.  Although the stripes  go the other way.
( All drawings taken from What-People-Wore-Illustrations.  Great illustrations with historical refences.  The French and Italians of course are the most stylish.)
