Description:Fringe leather shirts were worn by trappers, mountain men and frontiersmen. The leather not only gave protection and warmth, but in the mountains where rain is almost a daily occurrence the fringe coat or jacket would offer maximum protection. Fringe diverts water as it breaks it up and makes it run off in droplets. This shirt laces up the front and sides. It has fringe on the front and back yokes. It is lined in the yoke and shoulder area only. Make of Genuine Boar Suede.
