Warner Bros. western shirt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401060611786

I bought this as part of a lot of clothes used by Warner Brothers in western movies.  It’s a bit of a mystery, and doesn’t bear any of the Western Costume tags or Warner Brothers labels that the others did. The shirt has a pullover cut, large collar and gathered sleeves.  It has unusually wide shoulders.
Pit to pit: 28″
Shoulder to shoulder: 28″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22″
Length (base of collar to hem): 32″

Joe McCoy western shirt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401060658293

This shirt was made in Japan by the Real McCoys under their Joe McCoy label.  I’ve owned this one since 2008, and it was a few years old at that point, so long since out of production, and I have yet to see another of this model come up in that time.  It’s made from denim, based on a 1950s western shirt, with a label based on a ’50s longhorn Levis label. It has a lace up front, with dot pearl snaps, asymmetrical western pockets and a repro union label.
