This shirt could legally drink

I wore this shirt the other day and realized it's been in my wardrobe for over 22 years.
Now that I sew, the construction of clothing is of more interest than when I was just buying off the rack.

Yep, it's routinely machine washed but with very little dryer time.
(I place cotton shirts in the dryer for a couple minutes, remove and give the shirt a hard snap shake and then hang to dry
---> resulting in almost zero wrinkles.) All original buttons still on shirt.

French seam on outside seams

Flat felled seams on inside

Finished edges on hem and button placket
No raw edges anywhere
