14century Russian male costume?
- Hi there,
Does anybody have schemes for sewing a Russian summer costume for 14
century re-enactment? I am looking for a court clothes that might have
been used in Poland that time?
Im also looking for adresses of Eastern armourers that
specialise in 14 century and make realiable replicas of armour and arms.
