Package, 14th/15th century, Underwear

Complete underwear package contains all the undergarments necessary for a correct impression 1375-1430. Great basic outfit for soldiers and labourers, and a fantastic foundation for higher status portrayals. Shirt, braies and pourpoint are made of high quality linen.  Split hose are made of wool or washable wool blends, depending on colour, and are partially lined in linen.  All garments are expertly cut and professionally sewn for a polished look and long life.  All garments are based on extant garments and/or period artwork and have no visible machine stitching.

Tie neck shirt is a simple, loose fitting shirt with tubular sleeves and underarm gusset that has become a reenactor standard in the USA and Europe. Collar band extends into ties in front. Based on the paintings "Giuliano da San Gallo" by Piero di Cosimo in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and "Nativity" by Piero di Dominico in the National Gallery in Sienna. Linen.

Slit neck shirt is similar in cut to the tie neck shirt, being simply cut with tubular sleeves and an underarm gusset and  'boat' neckline. The cut is based on the Rogart shirt which was found in a grave near Springhill, Knockan, Parish of Rogart, Sutherland (Scotland) and has been tentatively dated to the 14th C. Linen. Package includes -one- shirt, please make your selection  from the drop down menu below.

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 no 'see through'.

The pourpoint is a a body skimming vest shape which closes in the front with points. As indicated in the Ordinances of Louis XI, it has no sleeves and collar. The pourpoint is made of 2 layers of linen, buff on the outside lined with our signature oatmeal, and has eyelets worked in the hem to support  the split hose.  Linen lined in linen.

Split hose are a transitional style seen from the late 14th C. through the end of the 15th C. The hose are made of separate legs cut from bias cut woven wool which are open from front to back through the crotch. There is no codpiece, so the shirt and/or braies can be seen in the gap. Legs have a seam running the entire rear length, are lined with linen to mid-thigh, and have a full foot. Thread eyelets located on the upper edge point the hose to a doublet or pourpoint.  This style affords much more coverage over the hip and buttocks than chausses, and will not stay up without the pourpoint or a doublet. Wool or washable wool blend lined with linen.

This set is perfect under a cotehardie, doublet of Charles of Blois, or G63. 

Also appropriate under a jack as specified in the Ordinances of Louis XI
