You can avoid tights (or at least showing more than your calves) by sticking to more sober and dignified garb, if you really want to have a persona in that period. There are plenty of pics of older folks or scholarly types who may be wearing tights, but have much longer robes over them. Or you can just avoid 1350 to 1600.
