good guy morality
by Warren O'Leary
Clayton Moore designed his own cowboy outfit; tightest among all the Hollywood cowboys. He was a trapeze artist prior to acting; this probably influenced his tight clothing preference. He also used Nudie Cohn, rodeo designer to the cowboy stars, to make his idea reality. Others might have thought his style of outfit unbecoming, but I think his choice of fashion was fine, then & now.
