A long, linen shirt (or tunic), referring to the Irish, Gaelic style at the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries. It is characterized by quite a long length (without drape it reaches the ankles) and wide, puffed sleeves, reminiscent of those in outer garments from the end of the 15th century (e.g. houppelande).

The collar of the shirt is hemmed with a linen trim and finished in the front in the shape of the letter "V". It looks best draped with a leather belt.



Together with the Irish doublet, belt and joined-hose, it creates the perfect Gaelic-style outfit.

Long shirt in sources

The source for our Irish costume can be found in the so-called Códice de trajes (Code of Costumes), a manual of traditional historical costumes, dated to the 1500 and 1599.
In the pictures of Lucas de Heere's book (the so-called costume book) you can find various historical costumes, including those typical for Gaelic warriors. This work dates back to the 1770s.
