TX Land Commissioner: Perry Could ‘Pass For A West Coast Metrosexual’

According to the Texas Land Commissioner, absolutely nothing gets you out of wearing cowboy boots.

Commissioner Jerry Patterson dished out sartorial advice to Austin American-Statesman columnist Ken Herman, who had cast doubt on his ability to pull off a a boot, and in doing so, Patterson panned Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) new look.

“I lament the fact that our governor could now pass for a West Coast metrosexual and has embarrassed us all with his sartorial change of direction,” Patterson wrote to the American-Statesman.

Perry apparently stopped donning boots due to back problems, which Patterson said was a “feeble excuse.”

“Tell Rick that boots can be purchased with normal heels,” he said.

Plus, Patterson said that cowboy boots are a great place to carry a knife, small gun or “a small flask, giving rise to BYIB (bring yours in boot).”
