The Best Cowboy Town In The World
The Luskey Legacy
The original Luskey's opened in 1919 as a dry goods store until the Luskey brothers noticed that the cowboys visiting the stockyards were looking for boots, hats, and durable ranch wear. Nearly 100 years later, Luskey's joins with Cavender's to provide an even wider selection to visitors to the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.
Cavender's was founded in 1965, in the small east Texas town of Pittsburg. James and Pat Cavender were entrepreneurs who dabbled in several ventures before opening a clothing business. James had a sharp wit, boundless energy, and he found the perfect combination for his skills, personality and experiences serving customers a quality product at a fair price. As a country boy in a small Texas town, it was only natural to carry cowboy boots and we started with just 3 styles of Tony Lama boots. They sold well, and so James bought more. It was just the beginning for this family company that would go on to sell millions of pairs of boots and become the fastest growing Western wear chain in America.
The Cavender's family still acknowledges their roots in quality products and outstanding customer service. This is why you'll seen family photos along with grainy black and whites of their grandparent's original ranches in Albany, Texas and Idabel, Oklahoma. Deep roots that formed the foundation of Cavender's dedication share their love of the western lifestyle with others. Cavender's continuously seeks the best in design, style and authentic western craftsmanship for our customers. So, you know what they mean when they say that "boots are in our roots."
Because of this Cavender's has been named the nation's top retailer for many prestigious companies such as Lucchese, Justin, Tony Lama, Laredo, Nocona, Rocky Mountain and Wrangler. In 2019, the Cavender Family was inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.
Today, Cavender's has established itself as the premier Western clothing store for the American South and Southwest and still remains a family business run by James and Pat's sons, Joe, Mike and Clay, who oversee the growth, development and day-to-day operations.
At Cavender's you can expect to find just what you're looking for from friendly folks offering a helping hand. We Don't Just Wear It, We Live It!" So be sure to visit us the next time you're at the Stockyards and enjoy second-to-none hospitality and selection deep in the heart of the best cowboy town in the world!
