Shirts & Men's Haberdashery

Today I just received a new book in the mail by the name of Shirts & Men's Haberdashery 1840s to 1920s by R.L. Shep & Gail Cariou. This book has a wealth of information on historical mens shirts and lots of great illustrations, patterns and old advertisements. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of this book.

Below are some photos of the book.

  1. How exciting - I'm curious if the various styles of cuffs and collars was up to the patrons preference - or were there social norms that indicated a status based on these differences?
