Cowboy Cuff Savvy
Cowboys have worn leather cuffs for generations to protect their wrists, forearms, and shirtsleeves from injury or damage caused by ropes, branding irons, brush, wire fencing, and other hazards inherent to their lifestyle. They are worn today for the same reasons, or as a part of "cowboy dress" when participating in re-enactments or cowboy shooting events.
Cowboy cuffs are typically made of leather and come in different heights or lengths according to their intended use, or simply the wearer's personal preference. They can be plain, or fancy with decorative lacing, buckles and/or snaps, tooling, and so on.
