Ultimate Authentic Shirt - Pat Kline Shirting

(5 reviews) Write a Review
Black/Blue/White "Bertrand" Plaid

For those who care about the details.  It's difficult to get more authentic than these shirts....these are made in the USA from Pat Kline's cotton shirting cloth by an Old Order Amish seamstress who, without electricity, makes them on a foot powered treadle machine and completes the button holes and other appropriate finishing by hand. She has made all of the clothing for her large family for years and it shows in the quality of her work.  

These shirts are made from the common "on the square" pattern of the mid-19th century and feature a sleeve gusset and fold down collar. Currently available in black/blue/white "Bertrand" plaid, that was custom woven for us by Family Heirloom Weavers, and is exclusive to South Union Mills.  

Note - We try to keep several sizes in stock.  If your size is not in stock at the time of order, a wait of 4-6 weeks may be necessary.  Please understand this before ordering, as we cannot accept mid-order cancellations because an item doesn't make it to you for a particular event.

    I bought this shirt in the light blue/white fabric with no pockets. I am an "off the rack 44 regular" and the size L was very big on me. But, after a couple of wearings and washings it is a nice comfortable loose and non-binding, even when sweaty, fit. The authentic square cut of the shirt is great. The fabric is durable and very comfortable against the skin. SUM has once again come up with another high quality item that stands out against the competition. I last wore this shirt while marching in the recent Remembrance Day Parade in Gettysburg on a very cold and blustery day in perfect comfort.

    These shirts are amazing . I feel so good , while feeling that much closer to the mid 19th century. I may have to buy another , in the future

    Love the fabric. Looks durable. Fits well. Quality is good enough that it will hold up for quite a while.

    Good shirt

    Feels like a good durable shirt. Kind of think material so maybe it’ll take some abuse.
