This amazing Wrangler Blue Bell denim shirt sold on eBay several days back. It’s another fine example of the denim western shirts that have been killing the eBay market over the last several months. The color and the condition really set this piece off – it’s hardly worn! From the listing:
“Fantastic original vintage 1940’s Wrangler Blue Bell Denim western Cowboy Shirt
All original in excellent condition
This shirt is NOT a Reproduction
Denim still very dark, washed a couple times only
All Snaps are excellent

This Levi’s Short Horn denim shirt from the 1950’s is one of my absolute favorite pearl snap western shirts. It’s a classic piece from the iconic American brand Levi Strauss. eBay seller “rman57″ has a history of moving top quality vintage products – this shirt is no exception. The wear and tear and excellent fading of the denim brings lots of character to this piece. I know that Levi’s is now remaking this model of shirt (and it can be found rather easily) but I don’t believe they will capture the excellence and quality of this 1950’s piece ever again.
Here are the details:
Seller: rman57 / Overland Park, KS
Label: Levi’s Short Horn / Large
Condition: “A well worn but solid shirt with some missing and some cracked pearl (snaps), a couple of small holes, a neckline fold tear and overall fading.”
