Abstract:
Men dress in a short version of the kirtle. Under it are a linen tunic and short breeches. Hose cover the legs and are held up by ties which are fastened to the waist of the breeches. Predominantly for soldiers, the surcote is a tunic which is over the kirtle and/or mail. It is cut narrower than the kirtle and, to allow for movement, has a slit at the center front or sides. Elbow-length sleeves are tied on or cut-in-one. The cyclas is another serviceable garment. Related to the surcote, it is sleeveless and has deeply cut armholes. A bliaud for men is without a corselet. It is laced through the torso. Sometimes it has a separate full skirt which is mid-calf or longer in length. The paludamentum is the most popular overgarment. It is fastened either as before, on the right shoulder, or in the new style with a cord across the center front. Functional garments still include the palla, the paenula, and a variety of mantles. Shoes are soft and have a slightly pointed toe.
