Replica medieval clothes

Clothes were often handed down within families as was so until very recently, but readymade clothes cold also be purchased from traders as well as bespoke items ordered from tailors by the more wealthy. The cheapest clothes were of fairly rough and undyed wool, so usually creams, greys and browns. Richer people tended to wear longer garments with long sleeves to show how much fabric they could afford – and to keep warm of course! Very few medieval clothes, other than those worn by clergy or royalty survive, but many pictures survive.
