Named after the iconic “sawtooth” shaped pocket-flaps, this remains a cornerstone in the history of western wear. Add to that original Scovill® 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. Special features:
  1. Sawtooth pockets
  2. Scovill® diamond snap buttons
  3. Accentuated western yokes on front and back
  4. Long sleeves with snapped barrel cuffs
  5. Long tails - so that shirts don’t pull loose while on horseback
  6. Edge stitching using fine thread and extra high Stitching Per Inch (SPI)
  7. Tencel® (organic) in a 210GSM twill weave

Sawtooth western shirt enhanced

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.

Edge stitching

To obtain a more sartorial finish Edge-stitching has been applied to;

  1. collar
  2. yokes
  3. pockets
  4. cuffs

In addition a thinner thread has been used while increasing the Stitching Per Inch (SPI) to promote the sartorial feel and finish.

On conventional western shirts double needling would usually be used instead

Double needling is used only on side-seam and armhole

Shirttails have been topstitched with rolled hem as true western classics

On TENCEL™

We chose to introduce TENCEL™ in our range of western shirts 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.

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
