Traditional starched tunic shirt for formal wear. This is a genuine vintage garment, designed to be worn with a separate collar and collar studs. Vintage tunic shirt, by Gieves Ltd, the military tailors.

This is a good quality white shirt, probably made in the mid-20th century or thereabouts, but now sadly past its best.

Condition:
Vintage shirt, well over half a century old, and in excellent general condition, but in need of a little repair. It has been laundered and starched since it was last worn, but that was clearly many years ago.
Several previous owners' laundry marks on inside of neck.
A two-inch repair is needed at the side of the front (starched) panel, where it has ripped away from the main fabric, as shown.
The neckband is dusty from storage. There is a slight rip in the top stud hole.
