Fundamental Work Shirt - Forest Green

I've ordered more

Item: 004357



From the timber mill to town, our Fundamental Work Shirt in forest green combines handsome good looks with loads of utility for the laborer. Calling on the color of a cliff-side canopy, this 19th century shirt will have you pining for the good old days.

Our pull-over style shirt features a tab collar with five buttons on the tone-on-tone embroidered placket. With a decidedly vintage flavor and utilitarian function, the amply-sized gathered sleeves, pleating and pin-tucking the chest provides a full range of motion for all those manly chores. Available in several colors.

Made from 100% pima cotton; pre-washed and dried to keep shape. Machine wash cold and hang dry or professionally dry clean. Imported. Available in mens sizes S-3X

Construction is adequate, sizing is off
I work at a living history facility which means I have to do real trade work in historically appropriate clothes. This shirt was good, not superb but good. The stitching is alright, but the fabric is sheer enough to see through in bright light. It will do for light work.

I gave this shirt to my Beloved for his birthday along with pants, suspenders and some ties. He liked them very much and I did get him an XLhe is broad shouldered; I would suggest to size up for comfort. He usually wears a 17 1/2, 32 sleeve. Very handsome top. Washed in cold, air dried. Retained shape and colour very well.

Snug fit.
Shirt is a nice color. I ordered the 4x which is what I normally wear in a Scully shirt. This one fits much snugger than the Scully. If it shrinks at all will be too small. Will not order again.

Work shirt
A nice-looking shirt, somewhat short in the body length, but still just long enough. The pleating in the front which looks nice and gives the shirt a bit of style also makes the shirt smaller around the chest, that needs to be considered when ordering it. I will be wearing it to an historical event this coming Sunday and will be washing it and I hope that all things turn out well, too much shrinking would render the shirt useless. We will see.

Great Shirt
I love this shirt for my more casual outings! I was a little worried about the slight puff to the sleeves, but once it arrived, I thought it was great. I wear Historical Emporium clothing as part of my regular ensemble and this shirt is great for more rugged canvas pants and a more casual waistcoat.

Another Work Shirt
I have 2 other "Fundamental Work Shirts in other colors. All 3 are excellent and comfortable. The workmanship is excellent. This Forest Green one is a gorgeous color. I use all of my Historical Emporium clothing while Cowboy Action Shooting.

Great Shirt
This shirt fits wonderfully. It is period in fit which means it is loose. Very forgiving if you are heavy. I am a huge fan of henleys, wearing them normally so this shirt is just right for me.

Work shirt
Bought a forest green Fundamental work shirt and it is very comfortable for hot weather as the fabric is not real heavy. Fits loose and airy, just what I was looking for.

Work shirt.
If I wanted to nitpick, I would wish the fabric of this shirt to be a bit heavier. As it is, it appears to be well made and true to the mid 19th century style. I'm happy with it and will make additional orders in the near future.

A superb colour that will work well with anything! I bought it to fit a 19th century worker's outfit, which I can casually or formally wear to any event. The fabric is very comfortable. Definitely add an ascot and a vest to this, and you'll receive compliments right away!
