Having just come back from Wyatt Earp Days in Tombstone Arizona, I am confounded by a few myths that popped up repeatedly regarding Ringo’s costume. I am going to tackle two of them here. I won’t say much as pictures speak louder than words.
Myth #1: Ringo wore black pants… FALSE!
Contrary to popular belief neither Ringo’s pants or jacket were black. They were a pinstriped GREY and were made from the same material. Please see the images below for proof of this.
Myth #2: The Dragon on Ringo bib shirt has its head at the top of the bib and is highly detailed… FALSE!
Contrary to the belief of the few who even realize Ringo has a red dragon on his shirt, the dragon is one color, without great detail (mostly due to the single color of embroidery) and has the head at the bottom of the bib. The head at the top myth is most likely due to the discontinued Dragon Bib shirt, previously made by Wah-Maker, as seen below. Also, of note, Ringo’s bib shirt is light grey, not black. Again, please see the images below for proof. Please note, the prototype dragon in the third image is only a work in progress. It is meant to show the general position and posture of the dragon but the details aren’t accurate yet try this out.
