Western Costume Company

Traveler and trader L.L. Burns founded Western Costume Co. after a run-in with a cowboy actor, William S. Hart. Burns observed the terribly inaccurate Indian costumes worn by actors in the early Western films, and when passing by Hart’s set, he made the filmmakers aware of his protest. Burns was hired on the spot to outfit the cast—he had accumulated a vast inventory of Native American goods—and the costume shop was born.
