I agree that the collar discs through both the shirt and service coat would be difficult to manage. I guess they thought it looked cool!

 

The shirts in Post No. 74 are not the 1904 Flannel Shirt, they are in fact the 1908 Flannel Shirt. Sorry for the error!

This thread is an amazing resource! I just corresponded with Brian regarding a pre-WWI shirt that I picked up this summer and he was quick to help identify it. Here are the photos--I'll let him reply with his most helpful assessment.

 

This is a private purchase shirt with a tag from Pettibone Bros. Mfg. of Cincinnati. There are four buttons on the front and pockets do not have flaps. There are no elbow reinforcements. It is pretty heavily mothed with a large low section torn, though for display this is material is tucked into trousers.

 

Thank you again Brian!

Hi Johannes,

 

Thanks for posting your shirt.

 

It appears to closely resemble the 1908 pattern flannel shirt. As you indicated, the presence of the manufacturer's label, and the fact that it has two cuff buttons on each sleeve, instead of one indicate that it's likely a commercial copy of the above mentioned shirt. It was probably worn by an officer or an enlisted man with deep pockets.

 

You're lucky to have that example, as in my experience, the 1908 Flannel Shirts are very hard to come by.

I have this tan cotton shirt with one single flap less pocket. Could this be the 1904 shirt pictured in the author’s image in this thread ? The buttons are glass.

Hello folks,

 

Is that a US uniform in the photo? Or is that British?

 

Thank you and best regards from Germany
