>I don't follow. I think what you are saying supports what I was trying to say which is don't assume that the flow of "fashion" >was west to east, which seems to be a common misconception. Do you not agree with that?

- LOL! Those are your warning words in any
situation...."Master so and so says ____________"!
Everytime I have asked Master so and so to comfirm
content they usually end up either laughing or leaving
on a bug hunt for the quoter with murder in their eye!
Personally, I like my long sleeves and furlined
shuba, which my friends have affectionately named my
"wookiee coat". Beats freezing. Mark Twain once said
that the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in
San Francisco. For me, the coldest May weekend I ever
spent was a coronation in Chicago!

- Vivat Sofya! You were in my thoughts recently with the extreme
weather. I hope you were safe from all.
French robe that resembles the shuba - there is also something in
Polish clothing that is supposed to be Italian in style that could
be seen as similar to the shuba. When I get home where my books are,
I'll post pictures to my folder for you to see. It pops up in the
Behem Codex as well as Polish Art (a nativity painting).
I was reading to see if I could find a Polish Italian connection
before Bona Sforza in the 1500's. What I found was the nobles who
could afford to, sent their sons to Italy for their education.
If anyone has access on the most recent NESAT conference held in
Denmark 2006, there is an article I would like on the Flemish
Broadcloth In Poland via the Hansa League. Another twisted costume
