(2 reviews) Write a Review
Men’s Excelsior readymade shirt

This is our newest men's shirt offering, and is patterned directly from an original in the collection of the Merchant Tailor Museum.  This shirt is a classic example of a readymade shirt of the mid-19th century, and has the following features:

-  Three button slim placket

-  Gathered sleeves and cuffs with gussets

-  Longer tail than many reproduction shirts, with tail splits and gussets

-  Reinforcement yoke along the shoulder seam

-  Original white glass buttons

These shirts are currently available in heavier weight cotton and will soon be available in our custom woven stripe cotton cloth.  The cloth was not pre-shrunk, so take that into account when placing your order.  Sizing info is listed below:

Small  36-38

Medium 40-42

Large 44-46

X Large 48-50

2 X Large 52-54

    Outstanding Construction

    Obviously a considerable amount of attention and skill in the construction of this piece. Mine was a heavy Osnaburg cloth, but I think they will be making lighter cotton shirts in the future. I wear mine at home and expect it to last for years.

    "Copied from an original" says it all. Excellent hand stitching, great material!
