Poet (or pirate) shirts are those terribly romantic and debonair shirts that you see the hero (and sometimes the heroine) dashing about in. They are appropriate for many periods and occasions, and also happen to be exceptionally comfortable.

Shirts may have a plain or yoke front, and they may have no collar, a plain band collar, pointed collar, or a ruff. Trim can also be added. The fancy shirts shown above are pleated and the collar and cuffs are trimmed. These are not basic gathered shirts!


Peasant shirts are similar to poet/pirate shirts but are much plainer. Peasant shirts don't have collars and typically don't have lace or other embellishments.
