Abstract:
Garments tend to be shorter and more fitted. Familiar layers are retained, including the longer gowns and mantles. By the fourteenth century the cote-hardie is the shortest and most fitted garment. Sleeves include a long-hanging sleeve, a funnel-shaped sleeve, a tubular sleeve, a bag sleeve, and variations of the tippet. Occasionally the sleeve is tied into the armhole and contrasts in color with the garment. The interest in edges grows intense for men too. By the end of the century every edge, including those on hats, shoes, and hems, are finished in cutwork. More individualized than in the past, hats include variations of the chaperone, coif, cap, peaked hat, and some new tall hats with brims.
