Men's Cotehardie The very best in men's medieval garb. Appear as if you have stepped straight from the court of Richard II! We have just put in an order for a very special handwoven brocade. Olive green silk with a handsome pattern of gilt vines and foliate shapes.
Don't limit your medieval wardrobe to hard-wearing linens and wools, or synthetic upholstery brocade. If you wish for truly noble garb that surpasses all the rest, we can deliver.
Very limited production. This color brocade is made just for us, and we have only a limited quantity. So if you are interested, don't hesitate!
Waists up to 50".

Golden Age Gown 1660s Spanish Baroque Gown. Made especially with Golden Age of Piracy reenactors in mind! A dramatic combination of gold and black. Bodice of hand-woven cloth of gold. Heavy gold lace and black velvet trim down front of bodice and skirt. Skirt of black silk taffeta, paned sleeves of pinked (scallop cut) black silk. Red satin ribbon cockade accessory with a jeweled center. A gown that commands attention, and can be found nowhere else!
Men's Elizabethan Doublet Black hand-woven silk satin with a small gold design. The fabric motif uses shapes similar to those on Elizabethan stamped silks. For the most authentic appearance. The ultimate addition to your nobleman persona.
Silk Velvet Cloaks Hooded cloaks with the liquid drape of silk velvet, with something extra special: handmade clasps of large jewels and pearls. Timeless silhouette, appropriate for many eras. In three gorgeous colors- Lake Blue, Peacock (dark teal), and Scarlet Red. Lined in pearlescent ivory charmeuse.
If you're looking for a velvet cape, you'll find ours are the best! Here's why:
We use special techniques to get perfectly neat, smooth seams. If you see velvet (especially silk velvet) capes elsewhere, check for puckering and wrinkling at the seams. This is a common flaw in many velvet garments. But you will not find it in ours! We take our quality very seriously.
Tres Riches Houppelandes The most voluminous houppelandes you've ever seen. Closely based on the dress of nobles in the Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. Specially constructed for the period-correct arrangement of folds, continuing up over the chest, toward the shoulder. For men and women. In cobalt silk or hay green.
