    Description

    Breeches (or more correctly Braies) are an ubiquitous piece of underwear in the medieval period. They almost always are made of robust white linen, which is easy to clean. They were worn by all classes of society, and mostly in combination with an undertunic and the additional outer clothing. If you are working very hard (or the summer is very hot) they may turn out to be your only piece of clothing.

    These breeches are made from fine, unbleached linen and are closed with a fingerloop braided wool cord. Additionaly there are slits at the waistband to attach hose at the belt. The cut is rather narrow so there is no bulk from extra fabric, but they still give enough room to move.

    The visible seams are hand stitched with a white linen thread. The invisible seams are machine sewn.
    On request all seams can be done by hand or machine.

    Please always choose your unchanged clothing size (e.g. for corsets your normal waist circumference, not the reduced circumference).

    For Italian sizes add +6 and for French sizes add +2 to the EU sizes.
