In my ongoing tribute to Canada, here’s a site I found that makes the most painstakingly crafted Western shirts and more. If you’ve been seeking Western wear that’s created the couture way, look no further. I’m always thrilled to find another fan of slow sewing. Read below to learn about Golden West Clothing:
“I make western shirts and jackets. Most styles are organic cotton. At present, all patterns, cutting and sewing is done by me in my studio in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
I manufacture according to principles that have become known as “slow fashion”. The designs endure, materials are chosen for their quality and eco-friendly characteristics. Construction emphasizes craft over mechanization.
Some shirts recreate vintage styles. Others re-imagine classics with a modern edge. They all pay homage to the western shirt in one way or another. The piping is custom made. Chainstitch embroidery is not computerized. There’s no fusing. All seams are flat-felled by hand. You won’t find shirts like these in any store.”
