It’s beyond an understatement to say western shirts are essential. With their signature snaps and jauntily slanted yokes, they add considerably more panache to an outfit than your run of the mill workshirts and Oxford button-downs. But given that you’re a savvy consumer, you won’t settle for any old denim western shirt, you’ll look further afield for interesting fabrics and textures.
Warehouse & Co., being the excellent brand they are, has some 100% cotton pique western shirts influenced by the very best of vintage westernwear. Snaps, slanted yokes, and heavy-duty construction help set these shirts apart, as do their tastefully muted hues of ivory and olive-grey. Entirely made in Japan, these shirts will make you feel like a cowboy who’s had his first shower in weeks in order for a trip to town. Best paired with your rattiest old pair of blue jeans and some nicely broken-in boots, I’m struggling to think of a better way to step out this summer.
