Rewrite rule for Get variable on shirts not working

I have added the following code to my .htaccess file but it doesn't seem to be working and I get a '404 Not Found' error. localhost/shirts/ works however once I go to localhost/shirts/108...I get the error mentioned. Here is my .htaccess code

RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^shirts/$ /shirts/shirts.php RewriteRule ^shirts([0-9]+)/$ /shirts/shirt.php?id=$1

Hi Oscar,

You're forgetting a "/" after "shirts in the second Rewrite Rule.

Copy and paste this code:

RewriteEngine On 
RewriteRule ^shirts/$ /shirts/shirts.php 
RewriteRule ^shirts/([0-9]+)/$ /shirts/shirt.php?id=$1

Let me know if that works.
