Men's Homesteader Shirt

Homesteader Shirt - $33.00

This loose fitting shirt is reminiscent of the styles worn during the settling of our nation's western frontier. Gently gathered around the neck, armholes and wrists for an old fashioned look and fit. 2 button placket neck opening for a comfortable pull on style and a stand up band collar. The sleeves are quite long with the extra length held at the wrist with the button cuff. Very generously sized throughout for ease of movement so there is no tension on seams during strenuous daily work! These are made for us by a local Amish woman. They are sewn on a treadle, non electric sewing machine and then the buttonholes and buttons are added by the Katie's Mercantile staff. While the construction is sturdy and made to last the inside seams are not serged and do not look "factory made" -- because they aren't!! Available in a variety of plaids and solids. Available in sizes M, L, XL.

Traditional Men's Shirt

Traditional Men's Shirt - $30.00

This is a button front shirt with a choice of a pointed collar or a stand up collar. The collars are intentionally not stiffened so they are softer and less irritating to the neck. The shirts feature a back yoke with 2 small pleats, and have long sleeves pleated into a single button cuff. These are an "English" style shirt sewn for us by an Amish lady. We asked her to make them the same way she sews for her husband and sons, and that is exactly what she did! Therefore they are well made sturdy garments but not serged or edge finished on the inside as that is not possible with a non electric 100+ year old treadle sewing machine. Then the Katie's Mercantile staff adds the buttonholes and buttons.

Available in a variety of solids and plaids and sizes XS - XXXL.

Currently custom only.
