Gaucho Clothes is the term used to refer to the traditional clothing used nowadays by the gauchos who mainly
inhabit Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. The gauchos are the cowboys of these South American countries.
Although we find
distinctive regional features, the main elements are:
The alpargatas, which is a rope sole and canvas shoe. The bombachas
de campo, very strong pure cotton trousers and the boina hat. These elements all have a European origin and they started to
be worn by the gaucho around the middle of the 19th century.
The alpargatas in English known as espadrilles were originally
made with black canvas but are now produced with a wide range of colours and patterns; some have rubber sole as well.
bombachas de campo are made in different colours, styles and designs but the most popular colours are still the traditional:
khaki, black, white, dark blue and dark green. These trousers are immediately identifiable because of the button they have
at the ankle which is used to narrow them.
The very fashionable gaucho pants similar to the capri pants are different
because of this reason, they do not go down to the ankle and because they are worn mainly by women which is not the case of
the bombacha de campo which is unisex.
Another element used by the gauchos which is also a very fashionable item is
the poncho, used in winter to protect from the cold winters in the pampas
It can be stated that these clothing items
are today worn not only by the gauchos, because as they have become fashionable, designers in Argentina have developed and
improved the original designs so they have become very popular with the general public.
Another reason for the gaucho
clothes fashion is the association with the polo environment. Polo players and fans have always been keen users of gaucho
clothes so the association has proven a trend to follow.
For all these reasons Gauchoclothes.com is your definite website
for these products.

The Magnificent look, and I still trying to locate some of his recent creations. Thus the Antonio Beradi ( 2003 collection
) instead of something more contemporary.
Africans are painting the world in a kaleidoscope of bold, vibrant color combinations and dazzling patterns. The rich
fabrics and virtually unlimited selection of turbans and other festive headgear, bright scarves, colorful wraps, wearable
art and elegant gowns that brightened our days and lit up our evenings in Morocco, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Cote
d'Ivoire Uganda, Benin, Ghana, Zambia, South Africa, Tanzania, Guinea and other African destinations, were simply outstanding.
What's more, so were the creators. During the past decade as publishers, we've had the privilege of meeting several of the
brightest stars in Africa's fashion galaxy, and thanks to the magic of serendipity, more will surely appear in the near future.
As I've learned, in many African societies, the choice of colors and textiles has special significance to the wearer. For
example, hats often tell stories of everyday life, with its struggles, spiced by uplifting periods of joie de vivre.
