Vintage Levi's Short horn Denim Shirt

Sold on eBay: Vintage Levi’s Short Horn Denim Shirt from the 1950s

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

Price: $565.55

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.”
