Here's one of a group of young vintage cowboy shirts we acquired while in North Carolina: the label on this is Brooks and Dunn Collection by Panhandle Slim. Brooks and Dunn, a country western duo who won many awards, had cowboy shirts designed to wear for their concert tours, and in turn, to retail along with their CDs.

This is a color block of white, black and blue with a large lightning bolt design on the upper shoulder of the (wearer’s) right sleeve.

Labeled a size large, this measures:

Chest: 42" plus

this has deep dropped arms eyes, typical of late 80s and early 90s shirt construction; that design line interferes with a standard underarm chest measurement

Across back yoke: 21"

Neck point to shoulder point: 8" this seamed has been dropped to the front of the shoulder line, which creates a narrow front yoke

Sleeve: measured from center back of the neck to the sleeve hem: 34.5"

Center back of the neck to hem: 28 and 3/4" long

Deeply dropped arms eyes, so the shoulder point to underarm seam is 13" (typically they're about 10")

Buttons up the front.

Peaked back yoke.

all cotton.

Narrow (1980s) collar. Small B & D logo tag with a longhorn embroidered in the seam of the left front pocket (another 80s-90s design element).

Freshly laundered, ready to wear. This does have a slight overall vintage fade to it, which we really love.

Western wear for concerts, rodeos, or just wearing down to the races or the corner bar on a Friday night.
