These shirts are exactly the same as our standard lightweight linen SH120B shirts except they are made in a heavyweight linen. We have has them made in this heavier and coarser linen for rougher characters.
These are pre-washed so can be used immediately.
Please note these garments are deliberately aged and may even have developed holes in the dyeing process. They are intended for professional costume suppliers who understand about breaking down and appreciate such flaws!
This shirt uses the standard C18th square gusset pattern and is made from a heavy linen which softens wonderfully when washed.

Dye-able linen buttons.
