Re: Fw: [SCA-Garb] Captains historic costume info
- There's just a couple of pictures of Elizabethan sailors out there-
kind funky looking, big billowing breeches, with a sort of cassock
(undoubtedly over a warm doublet) and a furry hat that looks like one
of those Russian fur hats. The book on the Armada in the Osprey
series has a woodcut of a sailor.
I've seen these folks-
Their male impressions look good. I imagine that their costume guide
would be a good start for a SCA nautical themed household. BTW, I
believe that they get their hats from Swedish naval surplus- these
come with a brim which they cut off. Voila, 16th century sailor hat.
