    Bolero western jacket in wool

    The Bolero jacket tracks its origin back to twelfth-century Spain where cattle herders wore low-crowned hats, bolero jackets, sashes, tight-fitting trousers, and spurred boots. The dress of gauchos and vaqueros may have originated in Spain but new articles of dress were added because of the various environments in which cattle herders performed their work. The Vaqueros of Mexico is considered the most direct ancestor of the American cowboy and in the cultural and technological merge between native tribes, Spanish and Northern European settlers in the North American South West, a new form of dress developed into what is defined present day western wear. The traditional Bolero jacket is short or waist-length due to its horseback heritage and adorned with embroiders and embellishments. The 50 and 60s versions were usually done in Rayon twill, however we opted for 350gsm 100% wool fabric in our “winter” edition. Other features are:
    • Action/bi-swing back to improve mobility
    • Adjustment tabs on the back
    • Pre-shaped tailored sleeves
    • Original Scovill® Gripper® duo studs
    • Broad waistband
    • Piping along front yoke
    • Tailored fit

    Cowichan hand knitted cardigan w. bronc motifs on front and back in navy

    Inspired by the Cowichan-style sweater characterized by the heavy knit, shawl collar and distinctive design, which usually includes geometric shapes or wildlife such as whales, eagles, deer, etc. If you’re not familiar with the term Cowichan, you’re almost certainly familiar with the style. These sweaters have been worn by everyone from Steve McQueen to The Dude in The Big Lebowski. More than just chunky knits with expressive designs, however, they’ve also got some deep history. True Cowichans are made by Coast Salish knitters in British Columbia, Canada. As the story goes, the sweater style comes out of a cultural exchange in the 1850s, between natives in the Cowichan Valley and European settlers. Our take has a more 70s emphasis and incorporates two smaller bronc motifs on the front and one large bronc on the back, to add a more western lean to it. Instead of the zipped front commonly used for this sweater style we opted for real leather braided buttons.
    • Shawl collar
    • Real leather braided buttons
    • Hand knitted
    • Heavy gauge hand knitted
    • Ribbed cuffs and hem
    • Welt hand pockets
    • Shawl collar
    • 50% wool 50% anti-pilling acrylic

The RRR Sawtooth Western Shirt

The range of shirts have all been done with the scope to enhance all quintessential design elements of the western shirt such as the signature pointed yokes on the front and on the back, longer tails, duel chest pockets with pointed flaps, pearl-snap closures down the front placket, and at the pearl-snapped cuffs.

All such design elements were conceived for a utilitarian purpose. A lonesome rider out on the range wouldn’t have to worry about carrying needle and thread to replace a button; the flaps on his pockets kept his tobacco tin from bouncing out while he rode; the yokes, with their double fold, made his shirt durable; the tighter fit prevented his shirt from getting caught on saddle horns and barbed wire; and the extra-long tails stayed tucked into jeans.

"done with the scope to enhance all quintessential design elements of the western shirt"
"Western shirt pockets are like the grill on a car: they define the western shirt as much as any other element, or more"

Named after the iconic “sawtooth” shaped pocket-flaps, this remains a cornerstone in the history of western wear. Add to that diamond snap buttons and you have something truly unique.  In our reinterpretation of this classic garment we have enhanced the pocket shape by making it more pointy and given the sawtooth flaps a sharper silhouette. The yokes, considered a key element in western design, has likewise been enhanced rendering them more impactful and unique.

On TENCEL™

We chose to introduce TENCEL™ in our range of western shirts for two main reasons:

Firstly, TENCEL™ shares many of the same characteristics as Rayon which were one of the most common fabrics used for the original vintage western shirts of the 40s and 50s. Both fabrics are characterized by a flattering drape and fluidity which gives it its uniqueness vis-à-vis other fabrics.

Tencel logo

Secondly TENCEL™ is one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics on the market. It is made from cellulose in wood pulp, which is harvested from tree-farmed eucalyptus trees. Cellulose is the natural polymer that makes up the living cells of all vegetation. The tree farms have been established on land unsuitable for food crops or grazing—no old growth forests, genetic manipulation, irrigation, or pesticides are used.

The fiber is produced via an advanced ‘closed loop’ solvent spinning process, with minimal impact on the environment and economical use of energy and water. The solvent used in the process is toxic but 99% is recovered and continually recycled. The process received the European Award for the Environment from the EU.

Key properties:

  • Comfortable: Similar to rayon in feel, Tencel is soft, breathable, lightweight and comfortable.
  • Lasting: Shrink-resistant, durable and easy to care for, Tencel is an exceptionally strong fiber, both wet and dry.
  • Color Rich: Tencel was created with color in mind, because of the fibers’ high absorbency. The fabrics can be dyed to high quality standards.
  • Easy to Maintain: Tencel garments are easy to pack, resist wrinkling and dry quickly. Most are machine washable, although different garment constructions may have specific cleaning requirements.
  • Natural: Tencel is made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fiber is economical in its use of energy and natural resources, and is fully biodegradable
