Where to Buy Snap Button Western Shirts

There are many unique places to find a western snap button shirt. Here is a list of stores where you can find these shirts.

 

​Are you searching for a western pearl snap shirt? There are numerous places to find snap buttons shirts. Where does one start? You can purchase a Western shirt from many online retailers (that offer several well-known brands), eBay stores that sell vintage western shirts, local western and tack shops and upscale clothing boutiques. Don’t assume western shirts are only worn by cowboys, professional rodeo riders or members of a country music band; many people wear snap buttons shirts for various daily endeavors whether at work or play.

In my search for snap button shirts I was surprised at the variety of places carrying snap shirts – not just western shirt styles but a variety of shirt styles using snap buttons. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have found most of my shirts at various thrift stores. I have only bought a couple of snap shirts from a “normal” store – and it was a discount store. Part of the excitement for me is finding a well-known brand name shirt at a local Goodwill or community thrift store. I don’t get the pleasure of having the variety of colors or styles found in retail or online stores but I do get the reward of only paying a few dollars for a decent shirt.

There are so many unique places to find a guy’s snap button shirt, (many of the same stores sell snap shirts for women)  I thought I would start a list of places both available online and at a physical stores where you can purchase a shirt. Many large online retailers carry several brand name western shirts and provide you hundreds of styles, colors, patterns and sizes to choose from. Other retailers offer only a couple of styles and there are even some shops that make a one-of-kind shirt for you.

Here is a list of places to buy snap button shirts. I have arranged them by these five categories:

  1. Western Clothing Stores
  2. Outdoor Recreation Retailers
  3. Unique One-of-a-Kind Stores
  4. Large Online Stores
  5. Lifestyle Stores

I will keep adding to this list as I find new places. If you have a suggested store reach out to me via my contact page.
