The Great Western Garment company was founded in 1911 in Canada. As many other garment companies did during WWII, the factory made uniforms for the US military, and ended up making 12.500 uniforms per week. In 1961 Levi's purchased 75% of G.W.G. The slogan was "They wear longer because they're made stronger". This Cowboy King is a truly unique and rare piece of western wear.
