Ely & Walker delivered dry goods to customers in a covered wagon in 1878. A lot has changed since then, with the exception of quality western wear. Limited quantities and frequently changing patterns make waiting on a purchase a difficult decision.
Introduced to ELY 1878 in Nashville, it was easy to embrace the western wear, coming from the country myself. The shirts are more fitted than most plaids I’ve worn, without hugging the sides or being tight. It’s a great fit. Not from a heavy cloth, it’s a light-weight summer alternative and a layer in the fall. The pearl snap buttons are a great touch and stand out nicely against the patterned back drop. The drop point front pockets are the second thing you’ll probably notice. I think this style has had an uprising as of late, unless it’s always been popular and I've had my head down.
Overall, it’s a perfect shirt and makes you look good when you wear it. Primarily available at brick & mortars – you’ll find their shirts at around $80. Pick one up and head outdoors.
