History[ edit ] The World's Oldest preserved garment, discovered by Flinders Petrie , is a "highly sophisticated" linen shirt from a First Dynasty Egyptian tomb at Tarkan , c. The small fringe formed during weaving along one edge of the cloth has been placed by the designer to decorate the neck opening and side seam. In medieval artworks, the shirt is only visible uncovered on humble characters, such as shepherds , prisoners, and penitents. In the sixteenth century, men's shirts often had embroidery , and sometimes frills or lace at the neck and cuffs and through the eighteenth century long neck frills, or jabots , were fashionable.
Components[ edit ] A shirt has several components: A one-piece back, which is usually pleated, gathered, or eased into a section of fabric in the upper part of the back behind the neck and over the shoulders known as the yoke either one-piece or seamed vertically in the middle ; one-piece sleeves with plackets at the wrist, or else short-sleeved cut off above the elbow , though this is not traditional; a band of fabric around each wrist known as a cuff; the collar, a strip around the neck, which is normally a turndown collar, with the strip folded down away from the neck, leaving two points at the front, the width of which is known as the spread; and finally two front panels which overlap slightly down the middle on the placket to fasten with buttons or rarely shirt studs. There are various styles of collar, which is the primary indicator of the formality of a shirt. The very top button is number 1. This city style is more formal, though it is common in Europe, and predominant in the UK.
