Mind the Music: Los Bustardos, Disney + the Western Work Shirt


What does a horsey So-Cal social club, some killer vintage gingham and Walt Disney have in common?

Killer vintage 1950s gingham western wear work shirt- that's what caught my eye.

Said logo was used in a variety of venues, including the occasional taped recordings of jazz bands who played at the club.

Including this breezy jazz record:
