Interesting fact about a Kosovorotka shirt

Kosovorotka shirt

A folk shirt with an skewed collar (Kosovorotka) has been first time sewed in XI ages. The reason for the appearance can’t be explained by fashionable tendencies: in those times everything was determined by convenience and a practicality. D. S. Likhachev suggested that the skewed collar didn’t give an underwear cross (a very personal thing which mustn’t be shown anybody) to fall into during work.

There is a fashionable element of the wardrobe a skewed collar shirt today. Surprisingly, women and girls want to buy a Kosovorotka even more often than men: they are attracted by the beauty of the embroiderry, the actual cut, the comfort of the attire.
