Bandit Brand is as unique as creator and owner, Jen McMillan. Jen started Bandit Brand in the early 2000s and stands by the shirts being ethically made and produced in the USA. Each shirt is dyed, cut, and printed by hand and most of the shirt designs are hand drawn, making them original and perfectly vintage. In the fall of 2022, Jen opened The Country & Western Store in beautiful downtown Sheridan. Now, along with Bandit Brand, Jen carries many other carefully curated rock/western brands at the store to bring the right amount of Western chic to the downtown.

When speaking with Melody Yuhre, Head of Graphic Design & Branding, she had awesome things to say about store owner, Jen. When Melody was asked what sets the store apart from other places in Sheridan, she said, “Jen is a unique individual! She started screen printing her own shirts and a lot of work and thought goes into her designs and styles. Jen even distresses the t-shirts by hand to create a unique look for each individual piece.” Bandit Brand shirts have a vintage rock-n-roll look. To complement Bandit Brand, Jen also carries Midnight Rider brand shirts as well at The Country & Western Store, which are country western and rock vintage style tees. The shirt Melody is wearing in the photo is Midnight Rider!

Something else Melody wanted to mention about The Country & Western Store is that they also carry Western accessories like leather-scented candles, western goods, and vintage items like shirts and Pendleton! They have vintage Pendleton and vintage cowboy boots as well, Melody’s favorite thing at the store is the boots because as she put it, “they’re all in great condition and at a great price for the quality!” She said she has a hard time working in the store and not buying something, I love everything we have!”

As a little tidbit to look forward to from Melody, “The upper level of the store is currently being developed into a collaboration space, details to come!”
