Cotehardie is better fitting than a tunic but less tailored than the style fashionable later in the century. It is based on a number of mid 14th C. sources and features the trim cut and rows of buttons popular in the period. Wool outer fabric lined in linen.

Shirt is based on the shirt of St. Louis (King Louis IX of France), which is preserved in Notre Dame, Paris. The original dates to 1250, and is said to be the oldest extant undergarment. Our shirt copies the cut of the original, and is made of fine white linen.

Simple, boxer style braies as seen in the Four Seasons of the House of Cerruti (“Barley”), Tacuinum Sanitatis (“Rye”) and other manuscripts of the 14th century. Opaque linen with pairs of eyelets over the hips to suspend chausses.

Single leg hose or chausses can be seen in artwork from the 13th (Maciejowski Bible), 14th (Tres Riches Heures) and early 15th (Mantegna) centuries. Worn laced to our 13th or 14th century braies, a belt or pourpoint, these versatile leggings may be worn rolled down to knee or ankle in hot weather. Linen. 

BONUS- We'll include a pair of tied garters FREE with each package purchase. Garters add a bit of dash to your outfit as well as keeping the chausses smooth on the leg, as well as allowing them to be worn rolled to the knee in hot weather. 

$359.80 if purchased separately.  Save $29.85 when you purchase the package -and- receive a pair of garters FREE!
