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'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.

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.
