The Middy has been a fashion classic for over a hundred years, although it has been a part of naval tradition since the days of sailing ships.  Its popularity peaked in the 1920s when newly-liberated women wore Middies for active sports and with skirts for more dressy occasions.

Our View A is a very simple garment worn by British seamen in tropical climes.  Traditionally made of a white cotton twill with blue binding around a square neck, the Shirt featured short sleeves and a self-patch in the back.

In the 1920s, View B was worn for school, office and sports, paired with a pleated skirt.  Comfortable and practical, it has been popular fishing and camping wear for decades.  A square Middy collar, short set-in sleeves, band cuffs, and a side buttoned hip band, detail this popular shirt.  A tab below the V-neck opening catches the contrasting scarf or tie often worn with this Middy.  Instructions for neck tie are included.
