Sam's S13 Orange Plaid

Sam's S13 Orange Plaid

This is a brownish-orange and blue plaid shirt with hints of blue. It does up with white snaps and is cut in the western style. It’s material is similar to the gingham style of Sam’s Clinging Red/Green Plaids.


In The Scorpion and the Frog (13x08), Sam wears this shirt once they decide to work with Bart, and go to meet him to hear about and ultimately take part in the heist. He wears it until they see the girl off at the bus depot.

In A Most Holy Man (13x15), Sam wears this shirt during the meeting with Margaret Astor at the restaurant.

I may or may not know this, but what exactly is a western style cut?

I'm about to use a bunch of describing words that probably are not used in the fashion world at all, but here we go...

Western-cut shirts (especially plaid shirts), have an extra seam around the shoulders, it sits about where the collar-bones are (or just under) and the top of the shoulder blades. The plaid (if it's a plaid shirt) will usually go diagonally across the shoulders, rather than horizontal/vertical. If it's a plaid shirt, then the plaid will usually also go diagonally on the pockets. Additionally, western-style shirts usually do up with snaps rather than buttons (usually, not always) and depending how much they lean into the western-ness of it all, they'll sometimes have little flourishes like pointed pocket flaps, or a very visible seam long the collar bone.

A "standard" cut shirt is something much simpler, which is usually what Dean wears - it just has one seam at the top of the shoulder (perhaps a back-shoulder panel, but you don't see those from the front), no parts of the plaid are diagonal, and the shirt usually does up with buttons, the breast pockets (if there are any) will be sewn so that the plaid lines up and the pattern is unbroken, and the pocket flaps are either straight across or there are none.
