When the occasion calls for something more formal

1970's COUNTRY WESTERN mens 2 pc jacket vest

Lately we’ve been noticing the awesomeness of the vintage western sports coat, or, blazer if you will.  Like the more formal older brother of the western shirt, it frequently features contrast color and fabric yokes, elbow patches, and all manner of embellishment.  First hand tailored by Nathan Turk, Nudie, and Rodeo Ben in the 1940s, fancy western suit jackets really took off in the 1950s as Nashville and television both had a hand in popularizing the singing cowboy look of Gene Autry and Roy Rogers.  But a western sports coat doesn’t have to coated in sequins and embroidery to look good.  Just those two-toned yokes will broaden a man’s shoulders and sharpen up his mien.  Some fine specimens exist on Etsy.

And, as I’m sure you’re well aware, the perfect complement would be a western shirt from Vintrowear.  Purchase with Pay Pal from our Etsy store, or Google Checkout from the Vintrowear site.
