Excellent detailed descriptions and organization
on March 15, 2001 - Published on Amazon.com
This text goes into excellent detail about men's and women's clothing in the 16th century. It explains commonly used period terms for different parts of clothing, including noting at what point in time the usage of the term changes (if it does). In fact it has helped me understand some apparent contradictions in other sources. As well it discusses other useful things like hairstyles and accessories. The organization is very helpful. It divides men's and women's clothing, as well as dividing the century into distinct periods. This is an excellent source for re-enactors, costumers and historical researchers.
