White Linen Borgia style shirt, tie neck and cuffs
This plain white Irish linen shirt is cut as a single piece, with neck and underarm gores, and gathering at the wrists and sleeve head.
The front slit opening closes with linen string ties at the collar. The cuffs are fastened in the same way.
In the 17th and 18th century this style of shirt was designed for wearing with a cravat, stock or jabot at the neck and perhaps detachable lace cuffs.
The shirt pulls on over the head.
The garment comes in two sizes, both generously proportioned:
– Medium: Cross garment measures 25″, back length 30″, front length 29″.
This would suit a slim or shorter man.
– Large to X Large : Cross garment measures 30″, back length 34″, front length 32″. Would suit a tall or broad man who usually wears a large or extra large shirt.
Other sizes are available to order – please contact us to discuss.
