This natural colored lightweight linen-cotton blend shirt is perfect for any 18th century man as linen would have been the most common fabric. The neck features a small bone button for the closure. There are triangle gussets under the arms, indicative of the 18th century, and shoulder reinforcements to make the shirt more durable. The sleeves are held closed with small bone buttons at the cuff.
Nice shirt. Only three concerns, cuff buttons thick. Cuff are tight and I think you need to ask for neck size. I am a large but neck is 19 1/2 inches. I can not button the collar. But great shirt light, comfortable. Collar is the right height. Just need a couple of refinements to be excellent.
Excellent shirt for military and civilian impressions
This shirt not only fit well and looked great with my 1st Pennsylvania Light Infantry uniform, but it also kept me cool as I had to march in a parade on a hot day. Linen is definitely worth it to go if you live in a hot climate.
