06/22/2011

Panhandle Slim, the Fort Worth, Texas based western wear manufacturer, is excited to announce the signing of World Champion Barrel Racer Lindsay Sears to promote the brand in the Rodeo and Western Lifestyle community.

Known for her chic clothing style, Lindsay Sears reads Vogue and Glamour magazines, wears low-rise jeans and waits eagerly for "Fashion Week" in New York and London every year. "I have finally found a brand of clothing that has a great fit and at the same time a cutting edge look," said Lindsay Sears. "Nothing fits me like my Rock and Roll Cowgirl Jeans . . . except maybe Martha."

"I am very excited to be a part of the Panhandle Slim team and look forward to working with everyone at Panhandle Slim."

Lindsay, who hails from Nanton, Alberta, Canada, travels the rodeo trail in both the United States and Canada each year. She has dominated the barrel racing on her great mare, Martha — the 2008 AQHA/WPRA horse of the year, winning every major rodeo including the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV to become a World Champion Barrel Racer.

Becoming a part of the Panhandle Rock and Roll ProRodeo Team, Lindsay joins rodeo great Tuff Hedeman, Professional Bull Rider Pistol Robinson, World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider Jesse Kruse, 14 time NFR Steer Wrestling qualifier Todd Suhn, PRCA Cowboys JJ Elshere and Joe Gunderson, and fellow WPRA barrel racers Britany Fleck, Jordon Peterson Briggs, and Carlee Pierce.

Panhandle Slim is a division of Westmoor Mfg. Co., founded in 1946 in Minneapolis, MN by brothers Ernest and Martin Hochster. In 1975, the headquarters moved to Ft. Worth, TX where it has remained since. The family owned company, now in its third generation, continues to be a major force in the western apparel industry. Today, Westmoor Mfg Co. owns and distributes six major premium clothing brands: Panhandle Slim, Rough Stock, 90 Proof, Powder River, Rock and Roll Cowgirl, and Rock and Roll Cowboy.
