New hiking boots for Utah trails are at Smith & Edwards

New Boots for Hiking the Bonneville Shoreline

- posted by Rose Marion

This spring, I went up to the Rainbow Gardens parking lot, and instead of taking Birdsong Trail like usual, my boyfriend and I hiked up to the Bonneville Shoreline trail!

It was breathtaking getting to see behind the water pipe that goes over 12th street as it heads up to Ogden Canyon, and we got to meet some fun dogs and watch as people made their way further up the mountains above us.


If you're looking to hike or camp in the Uintas or Northern Utah this spring & summer, make sure & check out our HUGE selection of energy bars & meals, hiking packs, hydration packs, and more backpacking & camping gear.


For me, I've never once regretted the money I spent on my pair of Merrell hiking shoes. My women's Moab mid hiking boots have helped me see Utah better than I ever imagined. I splurged for the Goretex water protection and it's served me well. I've hiked through pouring rain, as well as photographed some amazing river scenes that would have otherwise left me with wet feet!

Speaking of water - we have many styles of water hikers in-stock for guys & gals.

Steve Smith, our Shoes department manager, has brought in brand-new hiking boots from Merrell for men & women, as well as Under Armour, Teva, and our local favorite Browning.

If you haven't seen the valley from the Bonneville Shoreline yet, make this the year you make it up there! Whether your favorite views are from the North Ogden Divide, the 12th Street & Ogden Canyon area, or somewhere else like the Uintas (my goal!) along the Wasatch Front.... Let us outfit you with the shoes that will get you there.

Now, all of these boots are going to have great gripping soles and some degree of water resistance. Come in to Smith & Edwards off I-15 at exit 351 and try them on for yourself.

These are 6 men's boots and 1 ladies' pair in this feature, but there are MANY more styles from even more brands including Hi-Tec, Columbia, and more waiting for you here at Smith & Edwards!

Women's Jeans Guide from Smith & Edwards

All About Jeans: Women's Jeans Guide

- posted by EmmaLee Woodland

If you've ever been shopping for women's jeans then you understand exactly how frustrating it can be. Either they fit your waist and hips and you feel like you're going to split the leg seams with every step, or they fit your thighs and hips and gap at the back of the waistband.

There is just no winning, or so it would appear. What you need to do is identify what you like and steer clear of things that don't match up with that.

As discussed in our Men's Jeans Guide, the way your jeans fit is about more than just comfort. It's also about looking good, by finding what is most flattering for your body shape, and feeling better. Hopefully, the three aspects we discuss today, rise, leg opening, and fit, will help you in your quest for the mythical "perfect pair of jeans."

Women's Jeans: RISE

A jean's rise is determined by how far the waistband of the jeans comes up the waist. The greater the distance is between the crotch and the waistband the higher the rise.

Women's jeans rises from highest to lowest.

Jeans rise graphic via Joy of Clothes

Each brand varies from one another, but there are typically three main rises. You can approximate the rise of a jean by measuring from the crotch seam to the top of the front waistband.

Natural-Rise Ladies' Jeans

Natural rise jeans, also called high-rise or performance rise, sit right at the waist. This rise is more than 10 1/2" and help your legs look longer. These women's jeans are perfect for those competing in rodeos, or for hard-working ladies that do a lot of bending in a day. Take a look at the variety of ladies' natural rise jeans, like Wrangler 18MWZ or Cinch Jenna, we have here at Smith & Edwards:

Mid-Rise Ladies' Jeans

Mid-rise jeans sit just below the waist or about an inch below the navel. This popular rise is neither too tall nor too short, measuring between 9" and 11". Most body types look flattering in this rise!

From Wrangler's Cash and Q-Baby to Cinch Ada, Silver Aiko to Rock Revival, you'll find something you love.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Low-Rise Ladies' Jeans

Low-rise jeans sit a few inches below the navel. The rise is between 7 - 9-1/2" and are most flattering on slender figures.

Keep in mind that "muffin tops" and "love handles" are often accentuated by this fit style. Check out our Wrangler Sadie  and Cinch Bailey styles, and our selection of Rock Revival jeans.

You'll find Women's Jeans on our website, and even more styles in our Ogden, Utah store.

Ladies' Jeans: LEG OPENING

In women's jeans, there are so many different leg openings and it can get real confusing.

You may ask quite frequently, "When is the best time to wear ______________ jeans?" This leg opening section of my women's jeans guide should help you out a lot!

Women's Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are tight around your calf and are perfect to wear with fashion and western boots, most flats, and heels. They taper from the knee down and have an ultra low profile. This makes them perfect for showing off those red high heels or your favorite western kicks.

Take a look at our Cruel Girl Abby jeans. Cruel Girl and Cinch are sister companies and you can find multiple styles sold right here in our Ogden location.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Women's Straight-Leg Jeans

Straight leg jeans have the next lowest profile and are extremely versatile. The bottom half of the pant leg goes straight down from the knee, so they are a little looser around your calf than skinny jeans. You'll love these Silver Suki styles and the original Wrangler 14MWZ cowboy cut jeans in white and blue.

Ladies' straight leg jeans tuck into boots fairly well and can be worn with most footwear. If you like the cuffed look, these jeans are perfect for getting an even cuff with no puckering.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Women's Bootcut Jeans

Bootcut jeans are narrower in the knee than at the leg opening, so you can put the pant-leg over your boots. A lot of your western, riding, or work jeans are boot cut. You can also wear this style with your favorite pair of tennis shoes. They don't cuff as well as your skinny or straight-leg jeans.

Wrangler's Mae, Cash, and Classic Fit jeans are as hardworking and fashion forward as you are. Also check out the different Ariat styles we carry.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Women's Wide Leg & Flare Leg Jeans

Wide leg and flare leg jeans have a very distinct flare. The hem of the pant-leg is wider than the knee. "Trouser cut" is one specific style of wide leg pants. We know you'll love this Cruel Girl Jayley style with a trouser cut.

Cruel Denim Jayley Wide Leg women's jeans

Women's Jeans: FIT

A jean's fit is determined by how tightly it fits through your waist, hips, and thighs. Fit styles include slim, regular, relaxed, and loose fit.

Depending on the manufacturer of the jeans you're looking at, you may see different terms or style names on the jean fit spectrum. This section will give you a base knowledge, but you'll always want to check with the manufacturer to determine the most likely fit of the jeans you want to buy.

Ladies' Slim Fit Jeans

Slim fit jeans hug your curves tightly and are narrow from the waist through the hips and thighs. Brands such as Rock Revival, Miss Me, and Grace in L.A. tend to have a slimmer fit. Take a look at these and other great brands in slim fit.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ladies' Regular Fit Jeans

Regular fit jeans hug your curves but offer a better range of movement than slim fit. They are a little looser between the waist, hips, and thighs. This common fit is flattering and comfortable.

We carry this fit in brands such as Silver, Ariat, and Wrangler styles 09MWZ, WRC10, and WRQ20.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ladies' Relaxed Fit Jeans

Relaxed fit jeans fit loosely through the waist, hip, and thigh. They are more comfortable than other fits because of the extra room and freedom of movement.

Cinch's Ada and Bailey styles are the perfect jeans for that girl who needs to move! We also have a variety of Wranglers and other brands with this same great fit.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Ladies' Loose Fit Jeans

Loose fit jeans have even more room through the hip and thigh. This fit is baggy through the waist, hip and thigh. They allow for better movement and added comfort. Many of your boyfriend-style jeans would be considered loose-fit jeans.

Tips for Caring for your New Jeans

Now that we have gone over all of the basics about a jean's fit then you can be set free, right? Unfortunately, it's not quite that easy. There are just a few final things to keep in mind when buying and caring for jeans.

First, just find what you are comfortable in. The next time you go shopping, take your favorite pair of jeans with you. This will help you find jeans similar in size, style, fit, and color to aid you in your shopping experience.

Next, learn how to care for your jeans. To ensure that jeans will fit the same way every time you wear them you need to wash them in cold water and avoid the dryer. Hot water and heated drying will cause your jeans to shrink and your jeans will be unable to recover.

One last thing to keep in mind is getting your jeans starched at the dry cleaner's every once in a while. This will keep your jeans feeling and looking like new. It also helps to prolong the life of your jeans.

Our Favorite Work Gloves for 40 Years Runnin': Yellowstone Leather Products

- posted by EmmaLee Woodland

We here at Smith and Edwards have often wondered, "What makes a good, leather work glove?" The folks at Yellowstone Leather Products have been showing us what a good quality work glove looks like for the past 47 years, and we couldn't be more excited about it!

Kevin modeling our Yellowstone elkskin and deerskin gloves.

Kevin, from our hardware department, modeling our Yellowstone elkskin and deerskin gloves.

Yellowstone Leather Products is an Idaho-based business that opened in 1960. In 1969, now owner, Boyd Zollinger bought the company and went to work marketing and distributing American made work gloves. Zollinger said, "I was back east for school and was looking for a way to get back to Idaho," where he was originally from. "My family and I looked at this company that was for sale and we thought, 'we could work with that.'" That's exactly what they have been doing now for the last 47 years.

Smith & Edwards has had a long partnership with Boyd and Yellowstone, reaching back to 1969:

"We found their quality is far superior to any other glove we carry," said Jim Smith, president of Smith & Edwards, an Ogden, Utah, retailer that has stocked Yellowstone Gloves for more than 35 years. "Most people who buy Yellowstone know they are quality gloves that will last longer than two or three other pairs they could buy cheaper."
- Article from 2010 by Clark Corbin with the Idaho Falls Post Register

What makes Yellowstone Leather work gloves different?

The patented pattern of Yellowstone work gloves is really, what sets them apart from other work gloves. All of the premium leather gloves made at their warehouse in Idaho Falls feature both a seamless palm and back, making these work gloves form fitting. They fit tighter to your hand, Zollinger said, thus making it more like working with your bare hands, but with the protection necessary for even the toughest jobs.

Jean modeling our Yellowstone elkskin and deerskin gloves.

Jean, one of our managers, modeling our Yellowstone elkskin and deerskin gloves. Jean manages the gloves department as well as our famous candy section!

Talking about premium leather, these gloves are made from some of the finest, hand selected elk, deer, and goatskin in the western United States. When asked about the difference in materials, Smith and Edwards' own Jean Dimick said, "Elkskin and deerskin last longer than traditional cowhide gloves. They won't get hard and brittle if they get wet." You can enjoy soft, supple gloves no matter what.

What projects can I use my Yellowstone Leather work gloves for?

These deer and elkskin gloves can be used for any job, big or small, tough or easy. Elkskin is a heavier leather than deerskin and are best for heavy-duty jobs, such as fencing and other ranch work and construction. Deerskin gloves are more pliable and comfortable, and better for easy jobs.

We would rave about these gloves all day if we could. So come on in and find out for yourself what makes these work gloves so special. We know you'll fall in love with the Idaho-based, made in USA, leather work gloves that we have come to love and depend on too. Yellowstone Leather also distributes a high quality,  imported brand of leather work gloves called Rocky Mountain Gloves.

Dyeing Rodeo Queen Gear with Rodeo Ink

Right on HUE: Dyeing Rodeo Outfits for Queens with Rodeo Ink

- posted by Jerica Parker

I have always looked at Rodeo Queen contestants and wondered how they got all their outfits to match so perfectly. It's incredible! From their hats, to their boots, and even their horse tack, it is all the same shade.

A frequent question we get asked is, How do I dye my own rodeo queen outfits? So, we asked around to give you the answers.

A photo posted by Rodeo Ink (@rodeoink) on

If you've ever tried to dye your own rodeo outfits, you've experienced just how hard it really is. Sometimes they can turn out, and other times the whole batch is botched.

So we talked to Ron Hansen, owner of the Rodeo Ink Company. We got the chance to sit down with him and talk to him a little bit about his business Rodeo Ink and dyeing rodeo outfits.

 

 

A photo posted by Rodeo Ink (@rodeoink) on

Dyeing Rodeo Outfits Q&A

S&E: How did you get started?

Ron: Ever since my little girl started doing rodeo queen contests, I've started dyeing her outfits. Pretty soon, word got out, and I began sending out dye orders for rodeo queens all over the states. It's been 5 years now since I've started, and since Rodeo Ink opened for business.

S&E: What are some common mistakes people will make when dyeing on their own?

Ron: Well, dyeing is kind of a tricky thing. Many times, people don't take into account all the different materials and dyes you have to use to get the same shade on everything. People can very easily can ruin a pair of jeans when dyeing. I hear a lot of “Help me fix this!” and a lot of times, stripping the dye out again is nearly impossible.

So I help people start over. Some good jeans to start with when dyeing are white Wranglers, style 13 or 14, and blank white boots. That way the dye goes on in its pure color, and you’re not overlapping and getting strange colors in the end.

S&E: What does a rodeo queen need dyed?

Ron: Just about everything! That includes shirt, jeans, boots, etc. Even reins, saddle pads, and custom tack. I can dye all those all the same color to match the outfit. Also, I have a contact with someone who does custom jewelry, airbrushing, and more.

S&E: What other events do you do dyeing for?

Ron: I do stuff for high school rodeo queen contestants, horse shows, Western pleasure, Texas stock shows, and even youth competitions - not just high schoolers. Also, I have worked with State Queens and Miss Rodeo America contestants.

Ron Hansen with Rodeo InkS&E: What's rodeo queening's effect on families?

Ron: Rodeo Queening is a great program for families. I have been involved in rodeo for more than 30 years and I was a rodeo clown & bull fighter for about 13 years. My whole family has been involved in rodeo for 10 years now and we have learned a lot, and not only about rodeo.

Being involved in rodeo queen pageants teaches kids about responsibility and self-worth, which is something that can help these kids out a lot when growing up.

Now We Know!

Thank you Ron! He gave us some awesome tips and ideas and we hope that those were able to help you as well. He’s got a knack for dyeing and says that he can match any color you send him. He recently added a new gal to help him out during the peak season, where they send out about 10-12 pairs in a week to orders from all across the United States and Canada.

If you would like to get into contact with Ron, or would like to look at some of his work, here you can check out his Rodeo Ink Instagram or his Rodeo Ink Facebook page.

This flannel tee and turquoise jewelry help you stay stylish in cool weather!

Flannel shirts are a big fall and winter must-have. You can’t go wrong with a mix of color, pattern, and texture – especially with a flannel shirt that can oftentimes be a standalone piece.

If the early fall days are still too warm for an extra layer, take a page out of the 90's playbook and tie your shirt around your waist for an intentionally laid-back, yet comfortable ensemble!

Colton Egger - Cutest Cowboy in Texas

The Littlest Cowboy in Texas and his Wild Rag

- posted by Jerica Parker

Whether you're working out on the ranch, or goin' out on the town, a young cowboy or a timeless one, some things just never change. Just how Wranglers have been around for what seems like forever and they have never lost their style.

As for the Egger family, passing on these timeless traditions to their kids, as well as adding some of their own, is a must.

We recently had this cute little family buy some of the 100% silk Wild Rags we sell here in our store. Afterwards, they sent us some beautiful photos they had taken of their young son, Colton, by Sallie Scott with Country Grace Photography.

Colton's set up camp and he's ready to play!

The photos turned out so cute! This little cowboy is a natural. And he's got on a Wild Rag! If that doesn't convince you they're good looking, I don't know what will.

The Eggers aren't the only family loving these scarves. Marty Thompson, our Western Tack manager here at Smith and Edwards, and his family also love them. His cute kids know a couple different ways tie a Wild Rag to be the slickest lookin' cowboy around. Click here to see Marty's son Wells show you How to Tie Wild Rags.

Besides being good looking, Wild Rags are really very practical. They can keep you warm in the cold, and wick away the moisture in the heat. Use them to filter out dust in their air and breathe through it, or to filter out dirty water to drink. And those are just some of their many uses!

They come in many different designs and colors, you can choose whichever fits you best. Here at Smith and Edwards, we happen to have a wide selection of Wild Rags to choose from. Click here to see Wild Rags.

So enjoy your own! Just like the Egger family, you can send us photos of how you use your Wild Rags! Just send us an email at info@smithandedwards.com. And just like Colton, you can be toughest and most handsome cowboy out there.
