This one-of-a-kind shirt, hand made from found cotton and linen tablecloths, really has some tales to tell, as the hand embroidered back panel bears a stamp stating 'HMP 1943' meaning that it must have been sewn in prison (see pic 5).

As well as this little piece of history (which has been incorporated into the hem), the shirt features a large patch pocket with original visible mending, a hanging loop, side splits and fastens with six found orange buttons. One sleeve is hand bound in red (the other sleeve already had its own finished edge)
