PROVENANCE [ THE WESTERN SHIRT ]
The western shirt was first established during the beginning of the 19th century. A time commonly referred to as 'the conquest of the West'. The outposts from that era, gladly welcomed the settlers with their cosmopolitan and cultural mix, which ultimately resulted in the creation of the very first western style shirt.
This fashionable garment is said to have gained its inspiration, from combining traditional Mexican styled shirts, which were once worn by ‘the vaqueros’ (cowboys), with that of shirt designs worn by ‘Confederate’ soldiers throughout the American Civil War. The western shirt soon became a staple piece for American colonists and future groups of cowboy outlaws.
Nowadays, western shirts are often produced to be durable and robust with a denim look, perfect to see the real workwear gentleman through many adventures.
