I made this shirt using Dubarry 2349B, a men’s pattern from 1939 (DuBarry was the pattern line for F.W. Woolworths and were designed by Simplicity). I bought the pattern on Etsy and it was in excellent shape considering its age. It has a removable collar and collar stand that fits over the band (which is sewn onto the shirt). You can wear it either way. The top closes with a shirt stud.
I love the fit of this shirt — trim and narrow. A great look.
There more about my shirt on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
I’m leading a men’s shirt sew-along starting February 1 and we’re already more than 50 strong — come join us!

I used blue and white striped shirting from the Garment District here in NYC. It didn’t occur to me when I bought it but it definitely has a vintage feel to it.
