#812      Issue Pattern Shirt (Cotton Muslin-Off White)
Prior to 1852, evidently the army bought shirts on the open market or contracted for them to no specific pattern. The 1852 shirt is a four button pullover with one button on each cuff. The front placket is approx. 16" long and comes to a point at the bottom. The sleeves are off shoulder with gussets in the underarms. This shirt has a full body and a fold down collar with pointed corners. The tail of the shirt is split on each side with rounded edges. The original specifications and general pre war usage was a gray wool shirt. During the war, a natural muslin (off white) shirt of the same pattern was very much in evidence, and civilian production provided colored shirts of similar cut. This is the standard four-button pullover shirt. Real bone buttons are attached.

Army Pattern Underwear


Drawers

The soldier of the 1850's and 1860's was issued undergarments of heavy cotton canton flannel. One gets the impression that the undershirt was mainly used, except during the coldest weather, as a regular shirt or worn around camp. Evidently the drawers seem to have seen universal widespread service, worn long as issued during the cold weather and being cut off below the knee in warm weather. Flannel material exactly the same as that in underwear in our collection is available to us today. We offer a light weight version for summer wear.
Under Drawers are available in even waist sizes 30 through size 44

#590LW      Lightweight Under Drawers      $42.00
Made of cotton osnaburg. The under drawers have a two button waistband closure and the fly is left open with a slight overlap. A cord through eyelet holes on the back of the waistband allow for waist adjustment. Inseam reaches just below the knee. The leg hangs straight. There is no draw string in the leg.

 

#591HW      Heavy Weight Under Drawers       $45.95
Made of cotton canton flannel. The under drawers have a two button waistband closure and the fly is left open with a slight overlap.
