Cut with a slightly raised waist, long fitted peplum, and full chest, the peplum is laced closed, drawing it close to the body and yielding the “lightbulb” shape typical to the period. The chest closes with pairs of points. The body is balanced by sleeves cut generously through the elbow, yet tapers elegantly to fit the lower arm, where the wrist closes with 3 small buttons. May be worn with split or full hose which attach to the doublet with points. Although early versions of this style may be found in Le Livre du Chausse (1407) and Fiore del Libere (1410), this style best respresents the years 1415-1440, with many excellent examples found in Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal, Paris, Ms. 5070 (Bocaccio's Decameron), as well as Jeanne D’Arc, ses costumes, Son Armure (Ernest Leroux,1929).
