1970s Rockmount Blue Western Shirt

 

 

 

 

In our neck of the woods, you can still ride your horse down main street and hitch him up outside the local market while you pop inside for a Coke; and the rodeo coming to town is a big event.  So we find it amusing that it took a controversial Hollywood cowboy movie to spur the revival of western dress and specifically heighten the craze for Rockmount Ranch Wear, because around here, western clothes have never lost their appeal.  In a soft cobalt blue cotton blend, this is just the shirt to compliment those big ol' baby blues (or browns or greens).  Pearl snaps run up the front and at the front chest pockets, with a trio of snaps at the sleeve cuff with another on the sleeve vent. Stylized back yoke dips like an arrow between the shoulder blades, and a shirt tail hem. Soft, slightly faded and looking like you've owned it for a 'coon's age, the chest measures 46", shoulder 18", sleeve 24", length 32". Excellent condition. $65
