Hollywood adopted the Western shirt in the mid-1900s that it became a cultural icon. Films like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), High Noon (1952), and The Good, Bad, and the Ugly (1966) created a newfound craze for Western-inspired garments. It was at this point that designers began taking creative liberties of their own to differentiate their styles from traditional shirts. Snap button closure was forgone at the neck, instead replaced with a traditional button for much better breathability and functionality. Details and embroidery became either more or less animated — depending on the designer — and fabrics used went beyond just traditional denim and wool. The shirt became particularly popular in post-World War II era Japan, where Americana and Western-inspired workwear continues to be one of the primary subjects of local designers.
