18th century shirts are square cut typical to the time period. This is our specialty. We made the shirts for John Curry back in the 90’s. He still wears them today. The shirts are either pull over or cut up the middle for wrap around style. We will do as much or as little hand sewing on shirts as you want. Our average is to machine sew the inside and hand sew the outside. This way you get the hand sewn look without the cost.
We use mainly 100% linen fabric but will use linen/cotton blends or 100% cotton. Shirts are made to fit per your measurements. As with all of our clothing, material is preshrunk and is sewn with 100% cotton thread. Prices range from $85.00 for all machine sewn to $300 for an all hand sewn shirt.
