(It's a really fabulous collection of Spanish images arranged by century.
She also has some Portuguese and Basque, too.)
(This is really a site for women's court fashions in late period Spain.
However, if you follow this link, there is a portrait of a gentleman included
about half way down in the section for Sofonisba Anguissola.)
You could try doing a Google Image search for:
Carlos V (also try Charles V, for a few more)
Felipe el Hermoso (most will NOT be doublets, but there are a one or two)
If you have time to wait for an ILL, these two books by Carmen Bernis would
be helpful. They are in Spanish, so you'd have to know Spanish to read them,
but the pictures included are incredible. Only a few color plates are
included, but there are a good number of black & whites. The one on the Catholic
Kings (Reyes Catolicos) is actually a 2 volume set: one on men's wear and one for
_Indumentaria espan~ola en tiempos de Carlos V_
see plate 2 image 8, plate 17 image 80 (this one is online, though), plate 29
image 143, plate 30, plate 32 image 154 (my fave), and plates 34 - 41.
_Trajes y modas en la Espan~a de los Reyes Catolicos_
see plate (lamina) 1, 6, 7, 8, 10, & 11
(**NOTE: The person looking for short capes would be interested in plate 37
of this book)
Hope this helps.
