Size Chart

Note: Our 14th century shirt is not meant to fit closely in the chest. The chest measurements given are that of the shirt itself so you should choose a size that is somewhat bigger than your actual chest measurement. Typically, we recommend the shirt be 2-4″ bigger than your chest measurement for a comfortable fit.

Throughout the Middle Ages clothes were worn in layers, with a light linen tunic forming the foundation over which additional linen or wool garments were worn. The exact nature of these earliest garments is unknown, but by the 13th century, they had evolved into a simple, relatively short, white linen shirt. The shirt went through subtle, but important changes in the century that followed, as it evolved to conform to the new, closer-fitting outer garments of mens fashion. Worn with chausses and braies, this ubiquitous shirt forms the foundational dress of medieval man, from duke to cotter.

When worn under the tunic and/or supertunic of the period, this shirt would have all but disappeared from view, except perhaps at the collar. Fortunately, the shirt of this time well represented in surviving artwork. This version of our shirt is lighter weight, a bit shorter and more closely tailored than our medieval Men’s Shirt and has a simple round neckline finished with self-bias edge. It’s made of 100% mid-weight 5.5 oz linen and is ideal for use as an under-layer for civilian and arming clothes. For a more generously cut, heavy weight version of the 14th Century Shirt, see our Medieval Men’s Shirt.
