Czech clothing exhibit
- This came across the outlands group and I thought it would be appropriate here.
1. OT but a great extant clothing site

For anyone who hasn't run into it, the following Czechoslavakian site has great
pictures of a wide variety of seldom-seen extant garments from the early Middle Ages
through the Renaissance. Cotes, kirtles, surcoats, doublets, accessories like
jewelry, belts, pouches, shoes . . . everything. From countries all over Europe
(granted, a number come from Germany and Eastern Europe but a number come from
England, Spain, Italy and others). Pictures of things you never see. For instance,
the "batwat" which was a sort of Balaclava which I'd guess was meant to be worn
under a helm. Up close views of hairnets.
This part of the site is in English. Other parts . . . not necessarily. But a
picture is worth a thousand words.
