Pockets with flaps and bartacks
Cowboy Reason: To keep goods secure while out wrangling the herd.
Our Take: Our pocket flaps are western, but not 1970s-on-stage-at-the-Opry western. Our pockets are durable and reinforced with bartacks.
Cowboy Reason: For protection from the elements, particularly the sun. Some rodeos still won't admit you without long sleeves.
Our Take: Many classic Aloha shirts also have long sleeves. And if you roll your sleeves up (easy to do with our fabric), you now have short sleeves. Two shirts in one!
A sturdy collar, placket, and cuffs
Cowboy Reason: A cowboy can be rough around the edges, but not a cowboy's shirt.
Our Take: We spent a lot of time designing collar, cuffs, and placket to be both sturdy and comfortable.
