“Shirt Front” and Stock A false shirt front, or what we would now call a “dickey,” was a cost-effective strategy to extend the use of a shirt. Stocks were rectangles of fine linen, arranged in small pleats and sewn into linen tabs which fastened around the neck with a metal stock buckle. In the 1800s, the stock was replaced in fashionable dress with the cravat. Some older men retained their stocks long after they went out of style.
