Shirts were simple t-shaped garments with either a plain round neck or, in the 15thC, a simple split neck opening. They were rarely seen except on labouring class men working in hot conditions (though most often depicted in execution scenes). Made of linen so that they could be frequently laundered, the quality of the fabric depended on the wealth of the owner, as did the colour; fine, white linen was the choice of the wealthy, natural brown/grey heavier cloth was more affordable to working class men. Even the poorest man would have owned several shirts and they would have doubled as nightwear.
