medieval garments held at Prague Castle, including a number of
garment types I haven't seen surviving in Western Europe (that is,
types that were worn in the west, but where no examples seem to have
survived there). It's quite delightful. I keep thinking that my
wish-I-could tour around Europe collecting information on surviving
garments definitely needs to include Prague. (And, hey, I can still
remember at least a dozen words of Czech.)
