Male Garb

This was an outfit based on examples in the Tudor Tailor. The doublet is silk with hook clasps and paned sleeves. The sleeves are laced to the doublet. The waistcoat, which ties at the front, is also silk, with the skirt constructed so that eachpleat inner fold is grey silk, and the outer section is black silk

This is the same doublet as seen above, but without the waistcoat covering it. It is worn with woollen hose.

This is a silk Italian Rennaisance doublet, and woollen hose. I cheated a bit with the hose, and made them from a wool jersey, rather than wool cut on the bias. The slashed sleeves of the doublet were trimmed with lucet cord, and the buttons down the front had button loops made of lucet cord (to avoid having to made a lot of button holes, as I hate sewing buttonholes!)

This is a linen shirt, based on the "Holbien" shirt pattern from the Tudor Tailor.

Tunic, hood and shirt in the style of the 11th/12th Century Norman. The hood is wool, lined with linen (the lining is to prevent a reaction to the wool). The tunic is a heavy cotton material, but really should have been wool, the shirt is linen.

Generic 11th/12th Century Norman tunic and shirt. The tunic is wool, and the shirt is linen. The neck of the tunic is decorated in a simple chain stitch embroidery
