Notice the narrowed sleeve that is fitted to best suit a swordsman for battle. There's no billowy sleeve here to interfere with serious parry and thrust. At the height of its popularity, form 1500-1600, Gentleman frequently wore this shirt outside the pants, highlighted with a colorful sash. We drew our inspiration for this authentic pattern from the Elizabethan era: even the tie on the sleeve is authentic to the period. Made from 100% cotton.
