This shirt is an example of the type of non-regulation garment that was worn with uniform. It is a rare survival, and illustrates the cut and style that was fashionable in the early 18th century. The shirt features a high collar, which fastens with two Dorset buttons. A stock would have been worn around the neck so that only the edges of the collar were visible. The construction of the shirt is quite full, particularly the sleeves which are pleated. This would enable the wearer to fit into the relatively tight-armed coats of the period.
