Latest Windsors Updates Get it Now

several articles of the Duke of Windsor clothing were listed for auction. The site contained very nice photos of his belongings. Very interesting to look at and admire.

A question of mine is, after noticing that many of the front bands of his dress shirt's did not continue all the way down to the bottom, was it standard practice of the time to construct the fronts in a "tunic design". Or was this the Duke's preference? Today, obviously, we see the standard of the front being cut in a "coat design". That's the terms that Parsons uses in his book 'Shirts And Cotton Garments' with regard to the front. Also, was there a added benefit to this "tunic design"?
