About our Men's 15th Century Shirt 

 

The Shift to joined hose not only affected braies, but also altered the shirt as well. Until this time, the shirt had been worn loose, just like the tunic, super-tunic, cotte and cotehardie it had accompanied over the centuries. Shirts had already tapered and shrunk with the introduction of fitted garments in the later 1300s, but pointing the hose and doublet directly together required an even shorter under garment that could be worn inside the hose.

We have based our shirt on several different artistic representations from the period 1410 - 1450, and have incorporated the key elements of a closer fit, small side-slits, longer sleeves that gather about the wrist and a stand up collar just the perfect height to show above the doublet collar (as shown in countless period illustrations). Made of a high quality linen that is lighter weight than our 14th c. men's shirts, our 15th c. shirt is designed specifically for our 15th century line, this shirt provides comfort and mobility, without causing any unflattering bunching or bulges beneath the doublet or hose. When worn with the doublet, the stand-up collar provides a finished, layering look that is archetypal of the period. When working about camp or on hot, sticky days, you can wear the shirt without the doublet and be both comfortable, and still have a distinctly 15th century look.
