Gibbs of Texas holsters?

I'm curious about the lineage of this one. The design certainly has elements of Myres/El Paso to it, but it's stamped "Gibbs of Texas, Inc" and "Gilmer, Texas."

The crest certainly looks familiar:



The stitching in the rear is similar to a Threepersons, but the holster is more aggressively canted and hangs lower.



The taper towards the muzzle is more pronounced, and the thumbstrap looks closer to a Bucheimer.



Craftsmanship is excellent, on par with what I'd expect from a Myres protege. Anyone familiar with this outfit?
