- Mar 1 12:03 PMLooking at the text more closely, I would have to agree with Alexei
that it's not a great resource if you're looking for a reliable source
on pre-1600 clothing.
It's more of a general view of Cossack clothing, beginning at the very
end of our period of interest, and going on for a couple of centuries
after, which makes makes it not reliable for specifics if you want to
say that "I say this here, so it must be *period* for me".
I would say it is rather useful if you want to get a general "feel"
for the look common in the area, and know nothing about it. But you
have to keep in mind the limitations of a text like this for producing
something "accurate" to a given time period. You would be fairly
likely to get something that is an 18th century variation on garments
that existed in your desired time frame, and this text wouldn't really
tell you the difference.
But for a very generalized look at the area and its general feel,
which I think can be useful for some people, it's decent.
This is entirely my opinion, so you're welcome to disregard it
entirely if you so choose, but you've been warned that there are
reservations about this text as an accurate timely source.
