The shirt has a collar, cuffs and sometimes has pockets. In some cases, the classic closure with buttonholes and buttons can be replaced by a closure with mother-of-pearl snap buttons. It can be made with long or short sleeves, and the fabrics used to make it are various, such as cotton or linen , and vary according to the season.
Today there are various types of shirts with different types of collars, such as the Mandarin collar, Italian, French and button-down. The cuffs, on the other hand, can be classic or musketeer; the latter are nothing more than double cuffs, which are closed with cufflinks.
The name "Shirt" derives from the Greek "Kamos" and in ancient Rome of the 3rd century it was worn as an underwear item.
The shirt is an "evergreen" and has always been a symbol of elegance.
