Size 46-48 officer or civilian dress shirt, completely handsewn $160 shipped. If you're tired of the standard fare and want to stand out, or just appreciate the finer reproductions out there, this is absolutely for you. This is a one-of-kind horizontal pleated front shirt, constructed out of a quality medium weight checked linen from St. Augustine Textiles, with two rows of 27 pleats completely handsewn, with flat felled seams and all the bells and whistles. This shirt also features some very rare original small pin shank Novelty Rubber Company India rubber buttons (backmarked N.R.C.O P=T). Pleated shirts are among the most under-represented items in reenacting, and horizontal pleated shirts are even rarer. This shirt is constructed using two original examples, is a roomy square cut pattern with arm gussets, longer body, and high-quality material and construction. With the pleating, it took almost twice as long to construct as a standard square cut shirt, but it's worth it.
I will also consider trades for a quality Columbus depot jacket in size 46 or 48, a quality repro I&C knapsack, or English accoutrements.
