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.
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.
