Welcome to the official web site of Western Costume!

From the birth of Hollywood to the new millennium, Western Costume has dressed virtually every major star film has known. We’ve costumed many of the greatest films ever made. Western Costume is part of the history of cinema.

WebsiteWe have a right to show our pride. You see, at 97 years old we are one of the original motion picture companies in Hollywood. We were around during the silent era, the first Academy Awards, and the introduction of color. We’ve been here every step of the way, and it has been speculated that no one has contributed more to the movies than Western Costume.

And we’re still at it. Why? Because, we love the movies! Of course, we love television and the theater, too. We probably supply the costumes for your favorite network shows, and most popular world-premier movies and mini-series. As for theater, well of course Western Costume is used by the biggest Broadway and touring productions, but did you know we are the choice for many community theatre, college and high school productions? Of course we are, because we are among the best there is, and we make sure our services are affordable to every budget.
