All our shirts are replicas of original garments with the fabric and detailing as accurate as modern manufacturing methods permit. Our earliest shirts begin around C16th and the standard square cut shape did not alter until around 1800. This cut enabled the most economic use of valuable fabric.
By the early C19th shirts began to be more closely fitted and gradually the modern shape evolved.
We are now working towards having all our C20th fabrics specially woven for us using original garments for reference. This means we will have a library of fabrics which will be permanently available.
