This vintage shirt was made in the late 1910s- mid 1920s. It is made of red wool, in a pullover style, with a convertible collar and buttoned breast pockets. This style of convertible collar, designed to be worn either buttoned up, or worn spread for a look similar to the lumberjack jackets of the time, was briefly popular on workshirts in this time frame. The shirt has a bold reinforcement panel, stitched so that it doubles as a small third pocket.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled = 48″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
Length (base of collar to hem): 27-1/2″
