This older style of man's shirt is composed of two deer skins and is decorated with heavy leather fringes. As Euro-American trade cloth became available through trade, cloth was often used to decorate shirts. Here, a triangle of red cloth was used around the neck.
Pony beads are sewn into the neck and parts
of the arms.
