garb is stuffed full of yellow goodness. Saxon style, Swiss styles...
it's all good.
And then you can also go for the large sleeved Lowlands style gown:
I'm sure I've seen some late 14thC yellow garb as well, but I can't be
sure where. I know I've seen orange and blue (not on the same figure
just yet from that time.)
