Scorpions Pearl Snap Shirt x Fancy Pony Land
From our limited-edition collaboration with Fancy Pony Land. Inspired by the far west, the far east and the far out. Featuring hand-cut leather appliqués on garments from some of our heritage denim workwear favorites.
This few-of-a-kind piece features metallic gold lambskin leather on a Levi's Classic Western Denim Shirt in a dark wash.
The ever-talented Lorna Leedy of Fancy Pony Land on our scorpion inspiration:
"If you see a scorpion in West Texas it will most likely be less than the size of a quarter. When you shine a black light at night, scorpions will glow an eerie bluish-green. Scorpions sting defensively and do not attack humans. Their stings are painful, like a bee or wasp sting, but only life-threatening if you are allergic. They only use their pincers for feeding, not pinching. Just another desert denizen with a hard exoskeleton who really only wants to protect themselves. This pair of scorpions may be seen as a face-off but I prefer to think of them as two toughs in love."

A note about sizing:
We consider these pieces to be unisex, but please note this shirt is from the Levi's men's collection. Find your perfect size:
Take care to follow these care instructions:
This denim color should be washed inside out with like colors, preferably with a mild liquid detergent.
Wash seldomly. Denim is resilient and wears best when washed infrequently. Indigo dye has natural antibacterial qualities that make washing less necessary. Spot clean when possible. When you really must give it a wash, hand wash in cold water and hang to dry. Once dry, iron inside out. Leather, as a natural material, is washable but should be handled with care. When it first dries, the leather appliqué may seem stiff or slightly shrunken. It will become supple again once ironed on the backside. If you really want to protect and take care of the appliqué you can also rub a conditioning water-proofer like Nikwax into the leather, though be careful when applying not to get oil on the garment as it can stain. Do not dry-clean.
Fancy Pony Land's process:
Fancy Pony Land is handmade by Lorna Leedy. Original drawings become stencils that are traced onto leather and cut by hand with scissors. The appliqués are adhered to garments and machine top-stitched meticulously at a slow
rate of speed.
