Western shirts can look really good or really bad depending on the style.
And on whom is donning them.
Big Tex just got a new one.
The shirt doesn’t do much for me.
But hardly anything looks good or fits correctly on that hideous, disproportionate, maniacally grinning monstrosity, er, I mean beloved state fair mascot.
In honor of Clint Eastwood (and Joan Rivers), I’ll rank other Western shirts as either good, bad, or ugly.
Old shirt — ugly
New shirt — uglier
Face — ugliest
Big Tex – A true Texas born and raised in Kerens, Texas and was originally a Santa Claus.
Big Jeff (Prince) – Haltom City dandy who now looks like Santa Claus.
Big Tex – Wears well fitting clothes and his outfit is bespoke from head to toe
Big Jeff (Prince) – Wears untucked Hawaiian & Guayabera shirts from WalMart to hide his gut. Wonders what bespoke means.
Big Tex – His jeans are not selvedge denim but look nice.
Big Jeff – Wears jeans from WalMart to hide his gut. Wonders what selvedge denim is.
I don’t own a single Hawaiian shirt and I have abs of steel. OK, forget the abs but it’s true about the Hawaiian shirts. It’s also true I don’t know what selvedge denim is, but I don’t see how a pair of Walmart jeans could hide someone’s gut. I’d like to know more.
Also, how can I be a dandy but have no fashion sense? It’s a contradiction of terms.
Oh I get it now, Haltom City dandy is a contradiction. That is funny.
