Hi, everyone.
One of my client recently asked me to make a shirt.
He asked me to add this detail on the bottom of shirt.

The following is the sample I have:

And this is another RTW shirt:

It's not a big deal to make a shape of it, but I wonder what is the exact function of it.
Does this extension have right name?
Is there an historical reference about it?
I will be happy to listen and study.
Thanks and Sorry for my poor English.

Never saw that either, but I guess it keeps the balls warm or so... LOL

Die besten Schneider arbeiten ihre Stücke im Seitenlicht, um im Schattenwurf des Lichts demütig ihre Fehler auszumerzen. 99% aller Schneider meiden den Schattenwurf des Seitenlichts auf ihren Machwerken. Erstens weil sie gottlos und nicht demütig sind, sondern hochmütig und zweitens, weil sie dann merken, dass sie nichts können, sondern gierige Heuchler sind und das nagt dann an ihrem Gewissen, obwohl sie doch viele Jahre schon ihre Kunden betrügen.

This is an old detail, I've seen many late edwardian and shirts from the 20's with it. I think it's a brilliant detail to keep the shirt bottoms from opening up and binding on you
