Wool Flannel Federal Issue Shirt

Based on an original residing in a private collection in southern Ohio, this shirt represents just one of the three different styles of shirts issued to soldiers throughout the Civil War.  Wool flannel shirts were manufactured by contractors from the start to the end of the war but quartermaster records show that an incredibly high number of issue shirts purchased by government arsenals and depots were made of gray cloth.  In Cincinnati alone, gray flannel shirts acocunted for over 80% of all issue shirts purcahsed for distribution.

Our reproduction shirt is made from a nicely finished light mixed gray 100% wool flannel.  Each shirt is machine-sewn with natural cotton thread and features a faced slash pocket, stepped fall-down collar, faced cuffs, shoulder reinforcement straps, stamped white metal or Japanned stippled metal buttons, hand-sewn buttonholes, and our maker stamp on the lower body of the shirt.  As per the original, our shirts will be produced in an issue size that fits up to a size 42″ chest and also offered in the “large” shirt size which will fit up to a 48 chest.
