<<I have heard that further North was generally a bit more conservative.>>
So have I, but this just strikes me not as an older style, but as a
variation on what I know of about the style of that time, and I don't know if it is a
historically accurate variation or a misunderstanding of the style on the
part of the maker. I looked at a few of their other garments from time periods
I am more familiar with, and the few photos I saw looked pretty good, which
is a point in their favor, but I have also seen folks who sell very accurate
clothing for one period and very inaccurate clothing for another. Revival
Clothing comes to mind; their 14th century stuff is pretty good, I believe, but
their interpretation of women's 12th century clothing is very outdated.
