The 1870s don’t have a colorful descriptor like The Roaring 1870sor The Swinging 1870s.There’s no flash. Only importance. And guts.

First, Jacob Davis puts rivets in denim, and, because the telephone won’t be invented until 1876 (another feather in the cap of the 1870s), he telegrams his denim supplier, an amiable Bavarian named Levi, partners up with him, and patents riveted denim jeans.

Things are never the same again.

Across the pond, some dandy chaps in fancy clothes decide that shirts should be buttoned from the chin down to the waist and, by all accounts, end up making men and women work much harder, in perpetuity, when putting on shirts. Weren’t pullovers just fine? It may be too late to start a denim revolution.

This is a good start.

Pre-1870 Denim Shirt (No. 5655). Soft, lightweight, heavily washed denim. Like the pioneers, you put this on by tossing it over your head. Front button placket stops at waist. Patch pockets with flap and button closure on either side of chest. Sleeve has button and tab for rolled-up option. Striking contrast stitching throughout.Imported.
