Male Medieval Clothing

Between the 13th and the 15th centuries male garments went through the same evolution stages as female garments. In the 13th century clothes were loose and badly-fitted (a cotte and a surcotte). About the middle of 14th century clothes started changing their form for better-fitting to the trunk (a cottehardie, and later a doublet). In the late 14th century outer garments started to be very spacious (a houppelande, a robe). These garments were used simultaneously with other kinds of clothes (a cottehardie). In the 15th century we can find a joined hose as well as a separate hose (used for several centuries).
