This vintage Wrangler Blue Bell Denim Snap Shirt is the coolest pearl snap western I’ve seen in a long, long time. The shirt possesses just the right amount of wear. You can see in the photos the fading across the chest and the back. The unique slant pockets are great. The Outlaw Motorcycle Club stitching across the back sets this shirt completely apart. The thread work appears to be in great shape with no snagging at all. It’s amazing that a vintage Wrangler Blue Bell shirt like this one has survived as long as it has. I’ve reached out to the seller to see if I can procure any details on the history of this piece.
