Jorge Negrete, "El Charro cantor", was a true legend in the spanish speaking world, probably regarded as the best singer in spanish of all time...of course he is not  much known in the english speaking world. Jorge Negrete would had been an excellent opera singer, but, fortunately, he chose mexican music instead. He was an acomplished rider, by the way, having served in the Mexican army in the cavalry corps.

here you are some of his best songs...most talk about gun fights, love, hate, revenge, life in the ranch etc...

"la cancion de los vaqueros"


"El jinete"


"la feria de las FLORES"


"Juan Charrasqueado"


"Coplas" with his rival and friend Pedro Infante, the most popular artist in Mexico´s history. In this video all of Jorge´s extremly powerful and deep voice can be really appreciated.


"agua del pozo" with the spanish actress Carmen Sevilla


he showed a preference for Colt New Service revolvers in his movies.

 At that time Mexico was the richest country in LATIN AMERICA.

Thank you so much for my introduction to Jorge Negrete ...

You see, I sometimes reenact as a Californio, and I need all the background I can get

Here is a pic in my Californio Clothes ... my one mistake is that I should have a sword at my side rather than a pistol ...

My Californio Belduque by Josh Dabney


My moniker is my great grandfather's name. He served with the 2nd Florida Mounted Regiment in the Civil War. Afterward, he came home, packed his wife into a wagon, and was one of the first NorteAmericanos on the Frio River southwest of San Antonio ..... Kinda where present day Dilley is ...

you are welcome, Calofornio (Californiano in spanish)

you might get some inspiration in the ANDALUZ CAMPERO DRESS, which is the traditonal dress for elegance in the rural countryside in  Andalucia . Given that California was a spanish colony until 1821, when the mexicans gained independence,  it makes sense to think that there was still a strong spanish influenze  until it finally became part of the USA after the firts US-Mexican war.

some ellegant good designs can be seen here if you click in the dresses

the revolver in belt belongs strongly in the MEXICAN charro dress, which is based in some traditional spanish rural dresses. It is normally wore in the right side if you are right handed. In the spanish fashion after the XVII century, more than a sword, a big folding or a hunting "remate" knive was used..

using braces instead of a belt to hold the pants might add realism too.
