By the 19th century, playfulness and experimentation had disappeared from mens fashion. The watchword had become simple elegance. This white shirt made of 100 percent cotton is so different from Renaissance styles that wearing the two together would almost be unthinkable. The cut is inspired by the American pioneer era and the shirt would not be out of place when worn with modern evening wear. It has a narrow, slightly tailored cut and straight sleeves with narrow, buttoned cuffs. The bib that surrounds the buttons at the front like a shield and the elegant wing collar are distinctive features of this white shirt.
