Inventor of the "Cowboy Shirt"

in 1946 Jack A. Weil invented the snap-buttoned cowboy shirt.
Jack A, along with his son, Jack B, who was then in his seventies, ran Rockmount Ranch Wear, a manufacturer of classic western shirts, Stetsons and bolo ties. (Rockmont shirts have been worn by Clark Gable in The Misfits, by Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain and by countless other cowboys, both real and imagined in between.) - from Design Observer
