White Cotton Shirt

This simple white cotton shirt has pewter button closures at the wrists. The triangle gussets under the arms are indicative of the typical 1700s. These are made for an 18th-century fit. We suggest ordering off of your T-shirt size. If you have questions on sizing, please contact us for help.

There is no button closure at the neck. If you would like an additional neck closure, we suggest adding a button with a loop.

*We are transitioning to bone closures at the neck and wrists. If you would prefer the new bone button closures, please contact us. We will do our best to accommodate while we transition our stock.*

    Excellent shirt. Can't beat the quality and the price. A little tight in the wrist but I plan on buying more in the future.

    White Cotton Shirt

    I needed a shirt very quickly to go with my other clothes and a waistcoat I had ordered from Samson Historical. I didn't leave them much time to get one shipped but in the end, it got to me in time and I made it to my rendezvous fully dressed and authentic looking. The quality of the shirt was great, especially considering it was only $40.00. After using it for my event, I think I'll probably be upgrading to the linen shirt next time, the cotton was great but I think the linen might be a bit more correct for my impression. Anyways, the quick and excellent service and a great price on a great shirt earned this purchase five stars. Thanks again.

    Needs a closure at the neck

    This shirt is very well made of quality fabric and overall is period correct. However, there is no button or buttonhole to close the neck. This is by design. As a result, it has a tendency to pull away from the neck and down the wearers back. This distorts the neckline, and pulls the collar out of shape. While the bunched cloth at the wearers back is hidden by coat or weskit, it is uncomfortable, and tugging to relieve the discomfort makes the situation worse. The condition persists whether wearing a neck-stock, cravat, or closely tied kerchief, and requires a constant adjustment to keep neck-wear in proper place. It is less of an issue with a loose kerchief or no neckwear. The size which I purchased fits my body amply, but the collar does not close quite enough for a traditional button and hole; but I think could be resolved with a button and loop closure. I bought two, both do the same. I first purchased the "Linen Cotton Shirt" states that it has no button at the neck (my fault). After encountering that issue, I bought the "White Cotton Shirt" because the description does not make that statement, leading to a false conclusion that it did have a button (I should have looked at the picture more carefully - my bad). Only product I've ever bought from Samson that led to dissatisfaction, I will remain a customer as their purchase and delivery process is completely hassle free and among the fastest in the suttler business.

    Good Shirt

    Overall I like the quality and the feel of the shirt. My issues are the cuffs could be a bit bigger and the button holes were a bit of a squeeze the first few times I wore it. I would have also liked a button on the collar, but no biggie. Looks great with my waistcoat.

    a tad bigger than sized

    The shirts are very large for the described size. I take a 48L coat or 50R. These 2XL shirts are big enough for me and a close friend to share. Button holes are too small for the buttons. Nice looking. Soon to be worn, albeit bloused.


    great quality

    This shirt is perfect and can be very easily altered to button or string tie great fit and perfect accuracy.. furthermore they can be dyed very nice and nearly impossible to pick that out, they in my use have taken great to Red, and Navy Blue, easily dyed and looks great with regular rite dye.. thanks for a great shirt!
