The arming shirt was inspired by the shirts that medieval knights wore under their armor next to their skin. The cut allows for a full range of motion. The collar is convertible and can be worn open or closed at the neck with one of our historic brooches. The seams are finished flat and the stress points are reinforced to make your favorite shirt hold up to real use whether that is jousting like the knights, or lounging on the couch, like me. These shirts are versatile, and can easily go from costume piece to every day wear.&nb
