Laborers Shirt


Item: 002075



From operating an old-time printing press to plain old ranch work, our Laborer Shirt was worn in the pursuit of many livelihoods during the 1800s. Pair with Frontier Canvas Pants for the look of a genuine hard-working man.

Constructed with dropped shoulders, a gathered back yoke and full sleeves, our pull-over style men's shirt allows for a wide range of movement. A patch pocket on the chest is the ideal spot to stash a train ticket or spare change.

Imported. Fashioned from 100% peruvian cotton. Professionally dry clean or machine wash cold and line dry. Available in sizes S through 2X (no tall sizes available).

Pockets in a Shirt?
The shirts came right away and the overall quality is very good. My only issue is with the pockets on the right chest. Your picture does not show pockets and a pocket does not belong on an 18th Century shirt. I would try to remove the pockets, but I feel sure the needle holes would show. I am a demonstrating 18th Century blacksmith, and I really like my shirts to look correct as to period.

Now this is a great quality shirt with a lot of unique qualities! The fabric is very thick and heavy. A thick off white/beige linen look. Looks great tucked in or left out. If you leave the shirt out, it is a bit long but I'm sure a tailor at any dry cleaners can take the hem up a couple of inches if desired. Really great look if you like this style. Shirt looks like it can last a lifetime and goes will with jeans and boots. Good purchase, well worth the price!

Excellent Shirt
For the purposes of daily wear, this is one of the best shirts to buy from the emporium. It works well with any work vest, and I have only received compliments whenever I've work it. The shirt is comfortable and easy to wash. This definitely belongs in a worker's wardrobe. I bought two!

awesome shirt!
This is the best quality, best looking period shirt I've seen. I love to dress up in costume at every chance I get and when I do, I want the cloths I wear to be spot on and this shirt is a 10! I love shopping here!

I ordered the Laborers Shirt because of its unique design and casual look, and was glad I did. The down-to-earth unbleached muslin nevertheless has good body to it and a soft homespun feel. The cut, with its open neck and added fullness in the lower sleeve would give an artisan or craftsman an ease of movement required to complete his tasks, but I like it just as well to sit around and relax in.

Even better than I expected!
Wore this the day it's comfortable, stylish, and fits well. I haven't washed it yet, obviously, but the page says line-dry, so I assume it will wash just fine...either way, a fine purchase!
