Just left Wild Bill's Western Store and literally not a person greeted me or asked if I needed assistance. I was there a good 15-20 minutes looking at boots and left in frustration. From the good reviews this does not seem typical, but I will never return.
Superbowl support – You can not find a more all american locally owned western wear store. Wild Bill the owner of this western store was recently praised by Jo Trizila , chairman for a recent Big Brothers and Big Sisters event that Dewbre helped to host. She wrote:
“The biggest hit of the ball was that every person who attended received a custom fitted hat,” Trizila said. “Bill and his team were available on site to fit and size each person on the spot.
“It was evident from the very beginning of the night that without the hats the excitement would be missing – it’s rare to meet someone who is able to adapt, go with the flow and most importantly go above and beyond the call of duty.”
Bill has been involved in many Charities such as: Helping with some of his celebrities’ and friends such as Roy Rogers and Janie Fricke to raise money for the Children’s Hospital. Leukemia – Wild Bill’s Denim & Diamonds for Leukemia. TV promos & Boot give away for the promotion of Brest Cancer awareness.

Got a hat :) – I went into Wild Bill?s western store with the intent on buying some souvenirs for my kids. I really was not expecting the amazing selection and service that I received in the heart of the West End ( a tourist area). I bought NICE t-shirts for the kids, a jacket, and when I went to the cowboy hats I was overwhelmed! This Cowboy walked up and asked me what shape I wanted? He started naming off things like a ?Clint Eastwood etc? and I had no idea, so he picked up a soft leather hat and started shaping. It was amazing, the speed and skill. In a min he had transformed this unassuming leather hat into a real styling cowboy hat perched on my head and shaped just for me!

A Visit to Wild Bill?s Western Store – I have always wanted to come to Dallas. The western heritage has captivated me since I was a boy. I have always dreamed of cowboy boots. Just the thought of them brought me joy. I could see myself wearing a fine Stetson hat, a shiny Belt buckle and a beautiful leather vest. Every time I thought of this it made me stand so tall. I could just hear myself saying to all the friendly folks, "Howdy Y'all".Yet, I knew it was just a dream. I knew that the Dallas Spirit of the old Friendly West was just, at best, A thought and experience that could not possibility still exist. Until I was invited to see Wild Bill's Western Store, A western store that has been in Dallas for a few decades or more. Where people came from across the waters and in planes To experience first hand the excitement where Western heroes made their fame. When I stepped into Wild Bill's Western Store. The people were so friendly, the merchandise a marvelous delight, I looked across the store, western merchandise and beautiful leather filled the room. I heard a Texas voice that spoke to me, "Come, let me show you what you have always wanted to see!" Where I am taking you is far more than just your dreaming. This is a time for you to experience your desires to come true, Western works of art can be created just for you. Where movie stars and celebrities are often coming to Bill's office door.
Where works of art are created with excitement detail and craftsmanship and Texas pride just as his father before. Tell them that you heard it from me. I suggest you visit Wild Bill's Western Store and give them a Texas "Howdy" from me.
Take the time. This is a MUST see! – I was so excited to come to Dallas. I was looking forward to experiencing some Cowboy Culture. Everyone that I spoke to suggested that I go to see Wild Bill?s Western Store. It was just a few blocks from the Convention Center and it was located in the old historical West End District.
I am really glad that I did. When I went to Wild Bill?s Western Store I found everything western that I needed. From Dallas and Texas souvenirs for my friends to adorable western clothing for my children. The store was so rich with the smell of leather that it was a delight just to experience the atmosphere. Bill personally showed us around the store. We looked at the many different items that he made for top corporations and special events around the world. Bill showed us the beautiful creations of custom handmade boots that he had made for many of the celebrities, movie stars and delegates that have visited his store. The boots were so beautiful that both my wife and I had to have a pair made for us. Wild Bill?s employees were very knowledgeable. You could feel that Texas friendly spirit for which they are so well known. The manager helped us with a 3-piece belt and buckle set and hand shaped our hats to fit our individual personality. This was done on their 1956 Red Eldorado Cadillac Hat Steamer. We were so excited and we were ready for that night?s western event. In fact, we asked Bill if he would join us and bring his hats and custom shape them for everyone. He agreed. To say that this was an exciting event would be an understatement. I was so glad that I took the time to visit Wild Bill?s Western Store.
Stories on Wild Bill himself! – Yup, I?ve done some pretty strange projects in my time, that?s for sure,? he says. ?I just helped set an entire town up for an Alcon [a global medical company] event. These guys get me in when they need a little insight into the Texan spirit. I fit them with custom-made hats and boots, and I tell ?em how we Texan cowboys do it.?
If anyone?s steeped in old-time Texan cowboy spirit, it?s Dewbre. Now a sprightly, tanned 59 year old, he?s been in Western-wear since the age of 12, when he first began to learn the trades of fine leather craft, engraving and hand tooling from his master-craftsman father. In archetypal cowboy-style, Dewbre Senior lived his life in adherence to a handful of pithy campfire mottos. ?One of the sayings that sticks in my mind my dad used to tell me is: ?Anything?s easy if you know how- practice just helps,?? Dewbre says. ?I didn?t really get it at the time, but I did practice a helluva lot. And I guess I practiced it until I could do it well.?
?You get used to the celebrities coming in after a few years,? Dewbre says. ?We?ve done things for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Keith Richards, he bought some replicas of the old boots my father loved to wear. Eric Clapton was in here the other day, too, buying some boots for his wife.?
But the best celebrity story involves Elton John, who stopped by the Market Street store when Dewbre wasn?t there. ?There was a young girl who was waiting on him, and she had no clue [who he was]. He was trying boots on, saying ?Let me try this one,? then ?Let me try this one,? and these boots were pilin? up as he just kept laying them out on the floor,? Dewbre recounts. ?After half an hour or so, the girl came to one of my other employees and said, ?Now why can?t this guy make his mind up?? The coworker, you know, just laughed. Eventually the girl strode up to him and said, ?Well, which one of these boots are you gonna take?? He said, ?All of them, of course!? She almost fainted right there.?
