1890s Era Mens White Wing Tip Shirt
Victorian Gentleman's White Cotton Wing Tip Shirt.
A replica 1890's mans shirt. A classic example of shirts worn in the late 1800's. A white shirt back in the day symbolized wealth and status. If you wore a fresh clean shirt every day, you must have money. As a witty observation, men about town had to wear jackets and vests (waist coats) so very little was seen of the shirt except the collar.
Notice the button on the back of the collar, this is for attaching an additional collar or Bow tie. Like everything in menswear, the third collar button originally served a utilitarian purpose: It kept your necktie from slipping.
We present an authentic replica in terms of look. The fabric is modern day fabric, 70% cotton, 20% Polyester and 10% spandex. Why is this important? Polyester has a coating that deters stains which helps a lot with a white shirt. Spandex gives you stretch.
Long sleeves with button up cuffs. Stand collar with wings. Pleated across the shoulder blade seem. Top Pocket for handkerchief. Button up front. Meant to be worn loose. Accessorize with arm cuffs, bow tie or cravat and voila, you have a classic, Victorian, New Romantic or steam punk look. Want to go all the way? Add a vest and knee high riding boots, one of our Gothic jackets, Top hat and you have the look of Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights or Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
