Post whatever antique or Vintage fabric

I'm a sucker for western and hunting scene fabric, so when i saw 2 yards of this fabric for $8.00
I snatched it up.

Years ago we found a tattered old shirt from a 1940's 50's Talc mine.
This is the same fabric the shirt was made out of.

There was a time in the 1940s and 50s, maybe earlier, when bedspreads for a boy's bed could be had with western themes, as well as others like aviation motifs. Don't know about now and don't know about girl's.

I collected the western themed fabric for a few years, sold most of it off, I’ll look into the fabric offerings in the 1940’s- 50’s
Catalogs.

Do you remember people wearing fabric themed shirts like- western, hunting, aviation and so on?
If i was a shirt maker, i would sooooo snatch up this fabric and make a shirt out of it, don't know if i would wear it much.

I totally remember those, my older brothers each had one in different themes. I'd totally wear a shirt of that fabric as well.

I never had any but I recall ads for cowboy-style shirts (movie cowboy, anyway). I don't remember if I ever saw any in stores, though. I lived in a small town.
 
Something I do remember rather vividly but not fondly were boy's sport shirts made of pastel colored nylon (I think they were nylon. They weren't cotton). They were transparent. The fabric was a mesh and had a very open weave, I suppose so they would be cooler. But in light pastel colors like pink and blue, they were see-through.

Couldn't find any pictures with those shirts, but here are a few in the same genre.
