Boy's shirt made of cotton. The body of the garment is made from one panel of four-selvedge warp-predominant cotton. The red ground has multiple stripes (red/green/blue/white) alternating with four narrow spaced white stripes. The red weft is banded with narrow rows of white just showing as a shadow check. The terminal weave area is quite noticeable a few inches from the bottom edge. The sleeves are of a different material, the red being more prominent. The separate collar is decorated with rows of chain stitch, edged with button hole.
