    Chris, sanforization is actually a patented process of shrinking and stabilizing denim before it is cut for garments. It was first used in the late 20s. Sanforized denim doesn't "shrink-to-fit". You'll often see it on vintage denim, but there are still items that crop up today (I often see it on overalls) that are labelled as being sanforized.

    I don't think I would put the shirt in the rockabilly category - I could see Lucinda Williams wearing it, though!
