A man's fitted shirt printed with the Union Jack pattern. The front fastening have six small plastic buttons. It has a deep collar with dark blue pointed ends. The sleeves have 9.5cm deep cuffs fastened with three small white plastic buttons and three corresponding buttonholes.
A white satin label is attached to back of the collar with a printed Union Jack flag and a male figure pointing. The lettering at label top reads 'CARNABY ST/PICCADILLY' and at bottom 'I was Lord Kitchener's Valet'. The label is very faded and worn. I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet which was owned by Ian Fisk, made a speciality of second hand regimental uniforms. The scarlet guardsmen's tunics, which hung on rails on the pavement outside the shop, and Union Jack shirts offered a theatrical and subversive alternative to mainstream fashionable dress.
