About Your Mountain Man's Work Shirt Pattern
The Drop Sleeve Shirt was popular during the height of the Fur Trade era, approximately 1800 to 1850, when the trend was towards more fitted clothing, and features shoulders with a fitted yoke instead of the earlier, more square-cut garments.
Worn as a work shirt by fur trappers, traders, settlers, and explorers, this European styled shirt was common to both rich and poor. The Blousy fit and large sleeves allow complete freedom for frontier life. If made from a fine white linen, it would be considered a dress shirt and worn on special occasions.
