    Paypal at Ross4thUSInfy@aol.com preferred. Questions, pictures, or "I'll take it" via PM or email Ind18th@aol.com.

    Up for sale are two fully handsewn British import/CS shirts $95 each. I have one size 40/42 and one size 44/46. These are patterned from the Seldon shirt in the collection of the Museum of the Confederacy and fully uses the pattern and info from the article in the publication "Collector and Military Historian". The material is the same stripe pattern, but in brown stripe instead of blue. The material is slightly lighter than the original, the modern material was wider than the original, so the selvedge edge is not utilized at the bottom hem, but most other details are the same. These feature the correct 3 hole button from NJ Sekela, shoulder strip reinforcements, smaller sleeve gussets, placket and button reinforcements, etc. These are quality reproductions of an uncommon CS issue item and priced to sell for the amount of work involved.

    The 40-42 shirt is available still at $95 shipped Priority. This is an excellent CS issued shirt and as all my shirts, is patterned and based on a period original, with details not often seen in the average reproduction
