Elk Hide Shirt Fringed

This One of a Kind Fringed Elk Hide Shirt comes in classic Gold. The craftsman created this shirt as a reproduction of one featured in a painting by Karl Bodmer. He added painted pipes in Red and Black to the front and back of the shirt.  The Sleeves and the front bib sport painted Black lines. The suede side of the leather faces out.
The craftsman added fringe to the shoulders. The undersides of the sleeves remain open with fringe cut into them. Pieces of Elk Hide Leather Lacing hold the sleeves closed in four places.  A band of Elk Hide covers the raw edge of the leather at the collar. The bottom of the shirt is also cut into fringe.
Native American men from the Plains traditionally wore Leather shirts. They often added fringe and beadwork to them.
This shirt is sized Men’s Large.  The neck opening measures 10" across. The sleeves measure 23″ long with a 5" opening at the wrist. The shoulder measurement is 23″.  The back of the shirt measures 29″ from neck to bottom.  The front bib measures 8" long.
A previous owner wore this shirt, but it remains in very good condition.  The craftsman patched the holes in the leather very skillfully. You may notice some discoloration underneath the bib.
