Hi, my name is Clay West. I started Urban Cowboy Apparel in the later part of 2015. My vision for starting this company was to bring you, the consumer, not just a brand, but a way of life. Urban Cowboy strives everyday to inspire customers to live the "Cowboy Dream." Urban Cowboy Apparel is not just another online company. We strive to bring quality leather work and straight forward, honest service to our consumers.
Let's start from the beginning. I grew up in Arvada, Colorado where I was the 7th generation to live on the original homestead. As far back as I can remember, my family has been in the livestock business. My grandfather, father, and uncle owned a rodeo business, Bar W Slash. I grew up surrounded by the true cowboy spirit of loyalty, honesty, and hard work. Today, my grandfather is retired and I am working toward sharing that cowboy spirit through Urban Cowboy. Growing up, I always knew I would follow my western roots, but I didn't know it would be combined with my mother's entrepreneurial instinct. She owns and operates a very successful online store.
Fast forward to 2020 and I married my wife, Skylar West. We decided to live out our brand and take a leap into life. We moved away from everything we knew to start our lives in Georgetown, Texas. Today, our company is run solely by us, a true mom and pop shop. With all of the life changes, we have also decided to create a new outlook to our brand. We renamed the business UC Leather Company. We are keeping with the same values, but we wanted to see this business grow and mature with us.
Thank you for being apart of our growth. It is incredible to take this journey with all of you behind us. It is because of the great consumers, like you, that we can live out our dream and design more products along the way.
Remember: keep your chin tucked, enjoy the ride, and live life to the fullest!
