Where do I find 40's & 50's style sports shirts? Similar to the one's pictured?







The one's pictures are from daddyos.com but Im not particularly a fan of the contrast pic stitching or the fact that these are made from Rayon. I would prefer they made of cotton or linen.

Can anyone suggest any brands or makers that offer shirts of that style in natural fabrics?

Instead of a repro, why not go for the real thing? Plenty of the old 40s/50s sports shirts crop up on ebay, and a quick Google search will reveal scads of web sites that traffic in vintage. Hell, a patient thrifter can build a collection numbering in the hundreds.

Rayon was more of a status fabric back in the day, so a fair number of vintage sport shirts are made of some sort of rayon. Still, cotton and (to a lesser extent) linen are out there, as are nylon, silk and acetate.

start with the local Salvos/Goodwill/St Vincent de Paul before bothering with the internet.
