This shirt was the basic all-purpose undergarment of its time. Therefore, it is much larger and longer than a conventional shirt. Sleeves are extremely full and long. View A is a common working man's shirt with plain front, cuffs, and button fastenings. View B is a gentleman's shirt with front neck ruffles and wrist ruffles, to be worn with cuff links. In the 18th century the presence of wrist ruffles stated that the wearer did not work with his hands.
