Abstract:
The doublet and jerkin are the most popular garments. Frequently by itself, the doublet now is quite fitted and short. Hose are laced to the edge with metal points. In Italy hose are usually parti-colored or quartered. Sometimes they are joined through the crotch to form tights. They continue to be made of shaped fabric. The cape tunic, predominantly an Italian garment, is cut in two semicircles and joined at the top of the shoulder. The front semicircle is carefully pleated into a waistbelt, while the back falls from the shoulders like a cape. As an overgarment the cote-hardie is more fitted and shorter than ever before. Sleeve styles include the bag-pipe sleeve, the long hanging ­sleeve, and a closed sleeve with a slit for the arm. The man's houppelande (zimarra) is cut and shaped like the woman's. It is belted at the natural waist and, most important, varies in length. It is worn over the doublet.
