You are patching up your Godfrey Shirt once again. You have been mending it for years, adjusting the fit and fixing unraveled stitches and torn hems. It is a good thing you saved the money for this cotton shirt in the first place! It has survived the abuse of regular labor well, all things considering.

Many people are not so lucky.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's new Godfrey Shirt is a loose roguish garment made from light cotton and designed for both comfort and style. It falls just over the hip, and is fitted with a subtle collar along the v-neckline. The sleeves are designed to give a full, loose look befitting a wide range of social classes and careers from the late Middle Ages through the Renaissance. Tighten a cotton cord at the wrists to keep the fabric out of the way, made to easily fit inside a pair of gloves or gauntlets.

The style is moderate and can be used with a great variety of character styles. Match with other Epic Armoury clothes and armours to create your personalized look.

Available in Off-White and Epic Black; and sizes Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large.
