Civil War Shirts

C&C Sutlery offers many styles and colors of Civil War shirts.

The homespun shirt pattern passed down through generations was known as the "Square Cut Pattern". This shirt was made from a series of rectangles and squares. The only fitting was at the neck, and wristband into which the sleeves were gathered. The shirt body was a large rectangle extending to the thigh. The shoulder was reinforced. It had rectangular sleeves with gussets and the seam was off the shoulder. The cuffs were long about 3" and extended to the knuckle area. This was so the cuff could be seen while wearing a jacket then folded back on itself while working. The cuff buttons and button holes were placed close to the sleeve / cuff hem and on the edge of the cuff. The placket was not much longer than mid chest and more than 4 or 5 buttons would be unusual. Generally the collar was a fold down collar which could be worn with a cravat. Read more about Civil War Era Shirts.

Shirts of the 18th and 19th century were regarded as underwear and were not designed to be exposed to the general public. While working men may be in their shirtsleeves; as soon as they ventured out into public they at least put on a vest.
