HANDSOME BUT PRACTICAL IS THIS COWBOY'S GARB Like many American herdsmen, the Andalusian wears a wide-brimmed sombrero, and leather "chaps" to protect his legs while working on the range. The short jacket is often trimmed with silk braid. Across his shoulder is an alpenstock or goad stick for bullfighting on horseback.
