A short grosgrain ribbon ruff graces the collar and cuffs of this basic Gipsy Peddler gusseted rapier shirt. The shirt has buttonholes and metal button closures. Your choice of antique gold or antique silver.
The basic fencing shirt is made of white sports cloth and is to be worn with one of our doublets (or equivalent) to make it list legal for SCA rapier combat. It has double sewn seams and 4 layers of fabric in quilted underarm gussets (see picture).
The doublet is not included. It displays how the ruff shows above the doublet collar.
Machine Wash & Dry
Since this shirt is part of your armor layers, an 8x8" fabric sample will be sent with the shirt to add to your other armor for punch testing or drop testing.
We ship via USPS Priority Mail - Insured for safety and so that you will receive your order in 2-3 days once the package is posted, plus you can track your package on-line.
SMALL - Garment measures 42" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 38"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly. The sleeves (nape to wrist) measure 32" long which will fit most people that wear a small or medium modern size shirt. Note: If the small measurements are right for you except the hips, we can make a shirt with side slits to accommodate that issue but it will have to be on the production schedule. Convo us, if interested.
MEDIUM - Garment measures 46" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 42"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly.
LARGE - Garment measures 50" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 46"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly.
XL - Garment measures 54" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 50"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly.
2X - Garment measures 58" around but the gussets give extra room in the chest area. Your hips, waist or girth should not be more than 54"; the chest can be a few inches more and still fit properly.

History Note: During the latter part of the 16th century, the shirt collar began to show above the doublet collar. There are many paintings showing a wide variety of shirt collars, some only "peeking out," others of a medium length, while some literally "fall" over the doublet collar. At the same time, turn-back cuffs began to appear as well.

It is beautiful and just as advertised. My only (minor) nit is that I wished I had focused on what the material was before I bought it. I was hoping for natural fibers. But that is entirely my fault.

Quality material! I didn’t know the fabric was extremely durable-strong! I like every part of the shirt. Quality in make? Of the finest!
