There''s no billowy cuff here to interfere with serious parry and thrust. Notice the fitted, narrow cuff; this shirt is designed to best suit a swordsman for battle. At the height of its popularity, from 1500-1600, gentlemen frequently wore this shirt outside the pants, highlighted with a colorful sash. We drew our inspiration for this authentic pattern from the Elizabethan era. 100% cotton, available in black, white or purple, sizes medium, large, x-large and XXL. Can be belted for a fitted look.
