Western Costume Welcomes the Dykeman-Young Collection!

There is a lot happening here at western Costume Company. We are currently in the process of integrating the remarkable Dykeman-Young Collection into our own! As you may recall, we announced our acquisition of the collection in October. If you missed it, you can check it out on our blog here or at

The Dykeman-Young Collection is an incredibly well maintained, nearly immaculate group of an estimated 50,000 period pieces that we will be moving into our shop within the next few months. Known for it's outstanding selection of evening wear, the collection also includes a fantastic array of work wear from the 20th century, not to mention thousands of other garments ranging from the turn of the century, up to the 1980's.

Thanks to Brian Moss, Dan Lester, and many other incredible staffers, we have done quite a bit of rearranging to fit this massive and marvelous collection into our stock. Once everything has been moved in, we will have an area designated specifically for the Dykeman-Young collection, all organized by our fantastic staff. We are so delighted to have this extraordinary resource combined with our own stock all under one roof. We hope you can come by soon to see the progress we are making!!

We will be sure to continue posting images and keep you all updated on our progress as we move more items into the shop!
