Your best place to start is at your kingdom's website:
Contact your local group, check out some local activities and see if
you like it.
Our Society spans many periods and cultures prior to 1600. Deciding on
which one(s) interest you will help you determine what sort of
historical dress you want to wear, what sort of material goods (eating
utensils, camp gear, etc.) are appropriate for your chosen spot on the
timeline and so forth. Many local groups can arrange for loaner
clothing to help you acclimate at your first events too.
However, since you asked, and since they're GOOD, you might want to
check out Historic Enterprises. They're not cheap, but their quality
is outstanding - I still have a couple of pieces I bought from them
years ago and they've worn extremely well.
