Irish Shirt

Leine Shirts

Leines are a Medieval Irish garment. While no period examples are in existance today, historical texts and paintings give reference to the Leine and lend various descriptions. The usual length was around the knee, belted or worn under a jacket, or ionar. Our Leine features a double yoke with a keyhole neckline. The sleeves and body are pleated onto the yoke. The sleeves are long and can be left open or sewn closed to the wrist (bag sleeves). There seems to be no historical reference for the modern version with ties to adjust sleeves.

  • Leines are also traditional kilt shirts of the Celtic people. They are the perfect upper-body compliment to the Kilt.

    The leine is quite voluminous, containing several yards of fabric.

    Made of 100% unbleached muslin or poly-cotton in your choice of color.

    This Celtic costume can be worn as a Renaissance costume, Medieval Costume, SCA or LARP Garb or for your Celtic wedding.

    We offer one XX-large size that can be worn by almost everyone. (It measures over 110 inches around!)
