1920s Shirts

Shirts came in a variety of shapes and styles by this point in history. The most common type of shirt appears to be a “pullover” design with three or four buttons reaching down to the mid chest; though full placket shirts were starting to come into fashion. Shirts with or without collars are the standard for the working man. However, high detachable shirt collars were starting to get out of style by the early 1920s, and most shirts had attached collars, with the neckline lowering through the decade. Collars were generally medium-sized in length and either set close to the tie or flared slightly away from the tie. Cottons, linens, and wools would have been the most common material with blends also being in use. c.
