Tudor men's garment

with doublet, trousers and cape

Period: around 1590, France

The doublet and trousers of the Tudor men‘s garment are made of lampas fabric, which was woven according to an original 16th century pattern. From the early 16th century to the first half of the 17th century, the pointed oval motif can be found in numerous variations. The large vertical repeat is typical.
The doublet was reinforced and fitted with a peplum. While gentlemen throughout Europe in the 16th century usually provided their trousers with a pubic capsule, this was completely unusual in France.
A heavily stiffened second doublet is worn over the doublet. It has slits in the front and back, as in the painting.
The Tudor garment is complemented by a short velvet cape, as was popular in Spanish fashion towards the end of the 16th century. A small ruff can optionally be worn with this suit.
The entire costume construction is based on original cuts from the late 16th century and on a painting from the French School.
