Linen Cotton Shirt

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 is open without a button so one can be added to fit the wearer if they so choose. 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 pewter buttons at the cuff.

80% Linen / 20% Cotton 

*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.*

    Feels Great

    This shirt feels really nice, and when working as a historical interpreter in a log house with a fireplace, it is definitely nice to have on. It fits most of me greatly, except the wrists, they are a little tight. Otherwise than that though, it is great, and I do recommend it.

    Worth the money

    This shirt is amazing and comfortable, I added a linen button instead of the bone button and added cufflinks instead of the buttons that were on there, but the shirt itself is very soft and fits perfect. As always, Samson delivers in quality and workmanship.

    Linen Cotton Shirt

    I received the shirt in a timely manner. However upon taking it out of the package, it had several stains on it. I contacted you right away and received a courtesy phone call from Casey which I never expected. He advised me to try to wash the shirt to see if they would come out. Even though the policy states they will not take back a washed shirt, Casey assured me they would replace the shirt if the stains didn’t come out. Casey told me they would send me some sort of gift card or discount on my next purchase for my trouble if the stains came out. They did after treating the stains and washing the shirt. I have yet to receive any discount. Overall I am pleased with my purchase and experience with Samson Historical. Thank you, Casey and Abby.

    Title was fine.

    The shirt was not what I thought it would be. No neck button and material is so thin you can see through it. I'm just not happy with the product.

    Samson Historical

    Hi there!  I noticed in your review, you were displeased with the linen shirt. I also noticed you were upset it didn’t have a neck closure.   There is a substantial description mentioning this on the product listing: There is no button closure at the neck. If you would like an additional neck closure, we suggest adding a button with a loop. The neck is open without a button so one can be added to fit the wearer if they so choose.   It also mentions the fabric is lightweight, again in the description:  This natural colored lightweight linen cotton blend shirt is perfect for any 18th century man as linen would have been the most common fabric.  In the future, if you have a concern, please reach out. If you didn’t, please read the description fully before purchasing.

    Great service

    I ignored a prior comment about these running large. I’m 5’11” 265 and 2xl is usually snug. Here it was enormous. Samson cheerfully sent me an xl and it is still roomy but I like it. Nice thin fabric. Could use a button near the neck, but overall I’m very pleased. Thanks Samson.

    Excellent service. They definitely want to please the customer. Thanks for that special extra touch.


    Good Shirt

    I got my shirt in a timely manner and put it through the wash and it turned out to be a very, very comfortable shirt. The size is spot on. I had ordered a 2X and it was way too large, so I returned it and got a XL. The comfort is just great!! I wore it to the last couple of weekends of my local Renn Faire with a great kilt and I was very comfortable all day. All in all, well worth the price.
