A Brief History Of The Western Shirt

Western shirts have a long history which started in the early nineteenth century. The Western shirt was originally made from leather and other animal skins, changed in the early twentieth century to cotton.

The shirts are known, and stylized, with its yoke on the front and on the back. It is generally constructed with snap pockets, patches, and/or embroideries made from bandana fabric, and fringe.

The denim versions of the Western shirts came when these classics were transformed from practical garment to cultural icon when cowboys came to Hollywood. Mexican and American ranchers favored denim cloth for its practicality, as did soldiers in the American Civil War. But, it was rodeo cowboys, actors in Westerns, and visitors to dude ranches who created a demand for denim shirts as leisure wear. The weekend warriors, recreational cowboys, and film enthusiasts didn’t have access to the Southwestern tailors used by professionals, but they still wanted to dress like them.

Nowadays Western denim shirts are more popular and known, than ever. And, they’re the perfect garment for the double denim or better said Tuxedo suit.
