Readers, the Western shirt is done, pearl snaps and all!
To see me model it, just click here.
I am happy to report that this shirt does not feel costumey in the least. And the best part of all is that it's even more beautiful after washing. I love the slightly rumply texture of laundered cotton chambray.
I think if done in a low-key way, a Western-style cowboy shirt is a nice addition to a non-horseback-riding man's wardrobe.
For me, it's a definite -- and somewhat surprising -- YEA. I'm guessing (hoping?) you agree.
Have a great day, everybody!
