      The standards are more fully explained on the web site but boiled
      down they are:

      ----------
      All clothing must be in period appropriate materials (wool or linen).
      It may be machine sewn but try and keep exposed machine sewn seams to
      a minimum. All participants should have leather (no suede) shoes
      styled after turnshoes

      Men must wear at least:
      * 15th century style doublet out of wool or linen
      * 15th century style hosen made out of wool (either bias cut or jersey)
      * 15th century style hat
      Women must wear a least:
      * 15th century style kirtle and dress made of linen or wool
      * Bring a strip of white linen 1/2 a yard wide by two or three
      yards long for a headwrap
      Other recommended equipment:
      * Wooden bowl
      * Wooden or pewter spoon
      * 15th century style mug or drinking vessel
      Please mark your dining equipment with your initials or some
      other identifying feature! After the feast, they will all be washed
      and it will be easier to return them to their rightful owners.
      Modern equipment:
      * Should be non-visible and kept to a minimum - For example,
      insoles in turn shoes is allowed if necessary. Using a nylon bivy or
      tent is not.
      Camping equipment:

      Wool blanket and linen sheet works best. It may be chilly in late
      September, so plan accordingly. If you feel the need to bring a
      modern sleeping bag or an air mattress, you MUST bring a wool blanket
      or linen sheet to cover it when not sleeping. There should be more
      than enough tent space for all guests.

      ----------
      If you are not a member of a group scheduled to attend Paston, we ask
      that you send us a photo (email is OK) of yourself in kit.

      Thanks!

      John
