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.

Quality!
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!

GREAT SHIRT
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.

Wore this the day it arrived...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!

tuxedo shirt
Great shirt... after modifying it with rear collar button to accept a separate collar (as pictured on the web site, though the use of pinning the collar on it for the picture). Next time, advertise items as they REALLY are shipped! [editor's note: this item is not pictured with a separate detachable collar. The shirt ships as shown.]

Pleated Dress Shirt
Generally pleased with it. Well constructed, quality shirt. For me, collar too large for sleeve length. Would but more if you had tall thin sizes. I've adjusted the collar down to a 16 1/2, and adjusted the detachable collars I purchased so that they fit.

Beautiful shirt! For anyone who finds themselves in the same situation I found myself in... I am right between a 'Large' and a 'Medium' on their sizing charts. Tried both and ended up keeping the Medium. But in the end, the shirt and the service are wonderful.

A Good Choice
Nice looking lightweight shirt which wears well even during hot summer days in the south. Craftsmanship and material quality are wonderful. With the addition of a small 2-hole button on the collar loop this shirt adapts nicely to the add-on collars, which provides a lot of different looks from one shirt. A distinctive styleed shirt that goes with everything. This is a good choice to keep in your wardrobe.

Excellent but wide in the waist
Purchased a Medium. My usual size is 38-40. Shirt is great but still a bit large for a 38 size. too wide especially in the waist area. Don't know if size Small would be any slimmer in the waist since this is most likely a traditional 'period' style shirt (wider and voluminous). Happy with the Medium size. Great fabric and style. Comfortable. Consider it a good buy.

Pleated Shirt
I purchased this shirt at the same time as the gambler shirt. They are essentially the same shirt. One has the pleats sewn down, the other does not. One has a loop at the back neck to hold a tie, the other does not. They are both bibfront designs. Only the wearer would know the difference. I sewed buttons onto the back of the necks to use detachable collars. Since the fronts close with a stud, this works quite well. The style and cut are quite proper and ample.

This is an excellent shirt. It fits wonderfully, and arrived just when it was predicted to arrive. My only caveat to other buyers is to wash it by hand for at least the first time, as the dye runs a bit, and you wouldn't want the entire laundry load to turn pink!

Great Shirt
I like the shirt, but Scully/WahMaker need to make every shirt in a tall version. Although I am only 5'9" tall I always opt for the XL Tall. I like the extra length. Some shirts they make as an XLT but others not. XLT should be an option for every shirt. Other than that the shirt is soft, colorful, great buttons and looks great.

Great Shirt!
This is a really great shirt with the look and feel of clothing made for a purpose and made to last. It is a good looking shirt as well with the banded collar and vertical stripes (the vertical stripes knock a few pounds off your appearance). It's comfortable to wear and the Texas five point stat buttons really look terrific. Get one!

Soft and lightweight but with all the little details you'd look for in a shirt of this style. It's great for every day wear but it's still fine enough to easily dress up if need be.

Exactly What I Needed!
I needed a specific sort of shirt for a home performance, something flowing and casual BUT elegant. As I happen to also play the bass when I perform, it is often very difficult to "bridge the gap" between attire which is too, "side man" casual and too inappropriately formal and stiff. In addition, although one of your respondents commented that this shirt was too short (a comment which concerned me), I found that this was NOT the case. The shirt (I suppose it is actually a blouse) was absolutely long enough, roomy enough without being "sloppy" and, again, appropriately elegant, especially so because of the top, metallic button/link. Because I had very little time between ordering from Boston and our concert date in California, I was able to arrange pick-up at California address...and you delivered in plenty of time. For what it's worth, my intention is to order additional such shirts. But as someone who takes these things very seriously...and as someone who hjas searched very extensively for such a garment...allow me to commend you. Good job! I LOVE dealing with people who care.

Too Short
Material and workmanship seemed OK, but the shirt was too short to stay tucked in around my gut and shrank upon washing. I wore it once so far, and I might be able to wear it again, but I don't expect a third wearing.

Gardner Work Shirt - Ivory
I am very impressed with the quality of this shirt. I normally wear a large to extra-large in shirts, I bought the large and it was plenty big. I liked that it is also plenty long to tuck into my pants. The material is a lot thicker and more robust than I anticipated, yet is still very comfortable to wear. I actually got quite a few compliments on it from others in our reproduction. Only note is that the "ivory" color is closer to a very pale yellow. Maybe old ivory colored. I like it enough I am going to order the gray one as well. I like this shirt so much that I plan to wear it as a winter shirt to regular work, not just when I revert back to being a 19th century carpenter!

Not my favourite
This shirt is listed as Ivory. Photo is quite close to white. It is in fact a light yellow. Not what I would call Ivory. Is more of a work shirt material. Quite heavy. Not exactly what I wanted, but it did say work shirt. Fits well. Shipping is too expensive for returns, so another use will have to found for it as I wont choose to wear it as planned. Will continue to shop here, but the prices are enough that I would like to be happy with the product when I get it.

Great shirt
I have bought four shirts off this site. Everyone has been of high quality. This shirt once again is superb, a little heavier than a cotton shirt but soft. The design on the front is subtle and is a great splash of design. Sturdy built I wear this as an everyday. This place does not sell cheap stuff. I wear all my shirts and none have developed problems.

They may call it a work shirt, but it looks good enough for leisure wear as well. The fabric seems to be sturdy and durable enough to qualify as a work shirt. It will receive a bit of rough wear over the next few months, and I anticipate it will retain its good looks.

True to its description
I bought a M and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'3" and weigh 132 lbs. The material feels authentic! No polyesters, just a thick cotton. It does need ironing, of course. It says it's made in Peru. Very good quality. I feel comfortable in it. I am a docent to a museum for which I have to dress Victorian style. This blouse works perfectly.

I received the shirt but returned it, wasn't what I thought. The color is great but it had more of a denim feel to it. Customer service was quick to respond with acknowledging the return and refund and I thank you for that. I have ordered many times with your company and love most of what I have received and will continue to purchase from you.

Good quality product. It was too small in the chest for me, but that is a common problem I have. I am tall and busty. It fit my friend perfectly. She is shorter but also busty. She is a little smaller than I am. I gave her the blouse. The color is true to the picture and the fabric was not thin by any means. It will make a perfect fall and winter top.

Ladies Embroidered Work Shirt
Overall, I like the style and the material (cotton). Still trying to work out the best size. Even though I measured carefully and ordered according to the sizing chart, the shirt runs much smaller, esp shoulders and armholes. Consider ordering at least one size up if your height and weight are proportional. I like to layer clothing, so am now ordering two sizes up and hope the fit is ok.

Nice, but a tad small....
I participate in our town's Historical Victorian and Pioneer era presentations/celebrations. This shirt is a good representation for both eras. It seems to be well made, nice material, well stitched, however, there are few things to note. First, the size runs small. I originally ordered the shirt per the size chart, but had to return it and reorder the next size up. (I would also recommend washing it in cold water to avoid shrinkage). The other thing to be aware of is that it has a fitted waist, which you really don't get from the photos and it is not mentioned in the description.
