Would you rather wear tattered rags or regalia made of silk? In the Middle Ages you had no choice. If you were the child of a peasant, you would wear anything you could get. If you were royalty, however, it would be silk robes and damask gowns. Clothing in the middle ages was rough and scratchy, but in some cases was smooth and finely sewn, (depending on how wealthy you were).
THE BARBARIC PERIOD- A PYRAMIDAL SOCIETY
The few roads that still existed were in a bad state, bridges were scarce, and brigands were common. For this reason during the Dark Ages, which lasted until about 1000 A.D., populations were tightly bound to the land surrounding the feudal lord's castle. People moved about only when there were festivals in other cities. These were the only occasions on which people could buy or look at different goods and have a chance to sell their own food or objects and fabrics made for sale. Fear controlled people’s lives and induced them to ask for protection from powerful warriors who had constructed well-defended castles, or from monasteries, which did not have soldiers but did have thick walls to hide behind. Life was hard, and , people thought little of clothing. Clothes were often made at home and were often rough and shapeless. Trousers, tunics and shawls were used to keep away the cold. The shawls were made of wool or fur and put over the shoulder. Most Europeans were dressed like today’s Benedictine monks, except for men’s trousers. Shoes were leather wrapped around the foot. Colors were plain; they were shades of gray, brown, dark blue and red. Conical hats were commonly worn.
This was a pyramidal society because the classes of people were in a shape of a pyramid.. with the kings and queens at the top of the pyramid (and were few in number) down to the peasants (who were many in number). In the middle were feudal lords, clerics, and others, such as vassals.
In the Middle Ages, for the wealthy, most clothes were created by tailors. Some fabrics tailors used were : Burnet, perse, lincoln scarlet, kersey, russet, chalons, damask, and sandal. (Most of the population, however, made their clothing themselves).
Often, kings and queens would wear crowns and brightly colored silks. Obviously, their clothing was very expensive and only they had enough money to afford such beautiful things. Shoemakers and their spouses often wore borealis hats. The clothes they wore with that were woolen coats with fur-trimmed sleeves. Inside the coat was a woolen doublet. Holy orders, such as friars, wore cloaks with hoods and habits. On their clothes was a rope belt with wooden beads for counting prayers. Felt hats with stirrups and brown jackets were the daily wear of manor lords. Peasants' daily wear was simple: straw hats that they made themselves, linen shirts that they made themselves, leather flasks, hoses (pants), and pewter badges or good luck charms.Enquiry Now
Medieval Clothing For Men And Women
Medieval Era is known for a lot of changes it brought not only in literature, music, food or philosophy but also in clothing. Every era, following the medieval era took, tips from medieval clothing to enhance the style and charm of clothing.
The different trends and fashions in medieval era began when the soldiers came back from the crusades and used to bring back expensive clothing materials. These materials were bought by the aristocratic class and then they used to call in tailors from other countries to sew their clothes but later their own seamstresses learned to stitch clothing in different cuts and styles. Dull and colorless clothes were replaces by vibrant, cheerful colors and dresses. The medieval aristocrats were the pioneers of the medieval fashion trends because before that the medieval clothing used to be tedious and dreary. After the introduction of different new materials like silk and satin, the women began to wear tight fitted bodice but the skirts were frilly and loose. The skirts and gloves were usually made of silk and the rest of the clothing, that is the sleeves and bodice used to be heavily embroidered. The medieval wealthy women used to be encumbered with jewels. Diamonds were also introduced in that era, whereas men began to dress up cordially. They started to wear leather or sheep skin jackets which were very expensive. Leather boots also came into fashion. The undergarments of women were mostly made of silk while that of men were made of linen. The middle class was struggling at that time to make a secure a position for themselves in the society but many members of this class had emerged as successful business men, so they could afford the luxury of elegant and well designed clothing. The women of the medieval middle class used to wear velvet and satin. They couldn’t beat the women of aristocratic class in terms of jewelry but they wore their share. Certain laws were also passed at that time which made it crystal clear that the aristocrats and the middle class does not dress up so lavishly that the lower class gets offended. These laws were able to assert some balance in the society. The royal members and middle class toned down a little but still the profligate sense of luxury in clothing and style couldn’t bring in that balance in the society which was required.
On the contrary, the lower class or the peasants continued to dress up in the long loosely fitted dresses. They were only able to wear something lively when they were given the used clothing of the elite class. The religious people, such as the priests and monks also dressed up moderately. They only had two or three robes for special occasions.Enquiry Now
