Shirts were an indispensable element of men’s underwear. Every day, shirts made of linen or hemp homespun fabric were worn, and on special occasions usually ones tailored from well-bleached linen or cotton fabrics, usually factory-made, were used at the end of the 19th century. Shirts in the Kraków folk costume were framed and sewn with both a small collar or without. The characteristic slit at the front was reinforced with a belt of sewn-on fabric and often decorated with embroidery. Shirts were tied at the neck with a red ribbon or fastened with clips. In a festive costume, shirts with particularly decorative hem and embroidery were traditionally worn under a long navy blue kaftan.
