Take a gander at photos of Steve McQueen and he looks most comfortable away from the hubbub and hustle of Hollywood, roaming the mountains and desert in an old Land Rover, hunting and fishing and generally not giving a damn. On his back, a beautiful denim shirt with a touch of western flair, weathered to perfection and worn like a second skin.
It's an image that's always stayed in our minds, and apparently the same goes for the guys at Taylor Stitch who've just recreated the sweet piece. The SF-based impresarios of iconic clothing are now offering the Western Shirt in washed indigo in homage to the King of Cool.
As always with the Taylor Stitch crew, it's all in the details: slanted front pockets, pointed front yokes, and handsome antique brass pearl snaps. They've even one-upped McQueen by making their version out of 6.5-oz. 100% cotton selvage denim from Japan's famed Yoshiwa Mills.
Made in California, the Western Shirt is tailored for a McQueen-like fit and cut in the perfect mid-length to be worn tucked or untucked. Whether you're escaping the film set or just aiming to be the most comfortable man in the room, this is one wardrobe staple you'll want to stock up on.
