Western style Denim shirts?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Who makes the best western style denim shirts?

 

I am specifically looking for classic indigo colored with non contrasting stitching and white pearl snaps. But recommendations outside of that limited scope are welcome.

I like the ones from RRL (when offered) and the ones from www.rockmount.com.

I like this one a lot, except for the buttons: http://www.mrporter.com/product/181180

I'd say RRL for sure.

There's always Levi's - I find their shirts pretty decent for the price

I have a really great shirt from Wrangler. I found it at a thrift shop, it fis perfectly, has pearly buttons, a great collar. I wear it more than the J. Crew denim shirt I bought.

Levi's take on the shirt is pretty much classic: clear, blue indigo, and mother of pearl snaps.

The Levi's and RRL shirts look really nice.

 

This is really close to what I'm looking for: http://www.ralphlauren.com/contentPopup/index.jsp?productId=11750056&flashCol=Medium%20Wash&isFlash=true&largeImage

 

If it just had less of the light wash. Also not into the pocket embroidery.

 

This is also close: http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12364991&&cp=3146842.3146845.4305610.11896267

 

Too light colored though.

Longhorn or shorthorn - I can't remember which one refers to the style of pockets which are sort of reversed triangular, but Flathead, and Spellbound make nice looking ones. LVC also makes a hot one, but good luck finding it (every once and a while you'll see a vintage piece by RRL on ebay as well)

Sawtooth - LVC makes them, as does Flathead, and Jcrew (indigo denim western). The LVC I never liked (collar points too big and pocket flaps too big), the Flathead would never fit, so I bought the Jcrew and it is great - fantastic shirt (quite dense as well).

Iron heart makes some great looking ones, almost invariably thick as well, and people speak highly of them. But I never bought the one I was considering (IHSH-33), because they are expensive and I'm turned off by how long the collar points appear.

RRL - great (amazing) shirts for limited edition $220 pieces. But for the newer pieces I would not pay more than 50% off retail price.

Wrangler - the 27mw is a fantastic shirt, also spoken of very highly, but no longer available since a year or two ago I believe. Some are still floating around though.

There are a bunch others as well.

i took a punt on one by Lee that was on sale for something like 70% off from UO and was actually really impressed by it, denim is thin but the fit and color (a grayer blue in person) are excellent. minimal branding too.

I got one from Levi's about a week ago, it was very nice and only around $65.
