I am new to the list and first want to say HI ,,
My persona is 13th century German and I have found it is really rather
difficult to find good representations of Period Male clothing . I am really
interested in learning how to make my own outfits but the lack of pattern
sites has made it rather hard to do.
Can anyone perhaps give me any ideas .

Extant 13th century tunics:
The St. Louis Shirt: http://heatherrosejones.com/stlouisshirt/index.html
There are also two female gowns, which you can treat as simply being longer tunics:
The Gown of St. Elizabeth/das Bußgewand der heiligen Elisabeth: http://www.personal.utulsa.edu/~marc-carlson/cloth/elizabeth.htm
The Gown of St. Claire: http://www.personal.utulsa.edu/~marc-carlson/cloth/clara.htm
These are the original line drawings that Marc Carlson seems to be working off: http://tempora-nostra.de/schnitt_historisch.shtml
Braies, Coifs, and Hose:
In terms of German artwork, you might try:
Mahzor Worms: http://jnul.huji.ac.il/dl/mss/worms/
Codex Manesse (very early 14th century): http://diglit.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/diglit/cpg848/
General 13th century artwork:
The Life of King Edward the Confessor (1230-1250): http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Ee.3.59/bytext
Maciejowskie Bible (French, ca. 1250):
Murthly Hours (France, ca. 1280s)
Hopefully that will help. The thing that always stands out for me when looking at a lot of the artwork, is that the sleeves are reasonably close-fitting up to the elbow, and then they widen out and look a bit poofy. The widening sleeves of the extant outer wear also give that look! :)
Anyway, hope some of that helps!
