Profile

This venue is closed.

In 1978, sports agent Doug Newton and Billy Martin, then manager of the Yankees, teamed up to bring "Western duds to Eastern dudes." The result is a chain of country-and-westernwear boutiques favored by such rough-and-tumble celebs as Neil Young, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Billy Bob Thornton; the latter has called the store his favorite, no doubt because they carry the signature line of Western shirts he designed for vintage-inspired label, Cadzoots. The first thing you notice upon walking into this fairly small, dark, and handsome store is the overwhelming smell of leather, and in fact, a great deal of the merchandise—excluding the turquoise and silver jewelry and denim—is made from the cow: jackets, skirts, hats, boots, and belts. The selection of cowboy boots extends to blue ostrich but Billy's mainly sells custom-made leather shit-kickers from their own eponymous label. There's also a large collection of belts, some with buckles big enough to inspire a John Wayne swagger in any urban cowboy.
