A rugged western work shirt ready to be your go to shirt.
This shirt starts with deadstock vintage canvas from the 1960s. It is Graniteville canvas manufactured in North Carolina. It was found in an old warehouse in Oklahoma. It is olive in color and has a course feel compared to modern canvas. But wears comfortably despite the more course and uneven textures. This is a robust fabric at 12 ounce density. Similar to a light jacket in weight. The fabric is a piece of history from a time when USA clothing industry was thriving. Due to the limited amount of fabric, this is a one time small batch run of shirts. Once they are gone they are gone.
The design is a cross between a shirt and jacket and also between a work shirt and a Western shirt.
The buttons are jacket buttons. This was done to avoid sewn button tendency to eventually fall off and be lost or repaired. And to avoid the tendency of snap buttons to pop open on slim fit Western shirts when you move around alot doing physical activities.
The outer appearance has a Western shirt top yoke and front workshirt pockets. It is sewn in the Ciano Farmer Denim shop in Denton, Texas on vintage sewing machines. Each tag is produced in the same shop. The shirt is produced the same way vintage workwear clothing was produced in mid-century 1900s.
Considering the deadstock mid-1900s fabric, the garment tagging and branding, and the reproduction vintage manufacturing process on vintage machines for every step in the process, this is a truly one of a kind garment. You will find nothing else like it on the market.

** Please note - upon order your shirt will be hand crafted in Denton, Texas. This process will take 4-6 weeks before it ships to you. **
Garment Care - recommended hand wash and hang/air drying. Avoid dryer machines. If a wash machine must be used please consider using a gentle wash cycle. Cold and warm water is recommended (avoid hot).
Shrinkage - the fabric on a prototype shirt only shrank approximately 1/8 inch in length even when hot washed and dried in a heat dryer cycle (do not wash and dry your garments this way! This was only to test fabric shrinkage worst case). So with cold and warm water used in washing shrinkage should be minimal or nil.
