Medieval coats and jackets
The Middle Ages thrives on dark and mysterious characters. How could they better protect themselves from a stranger’s glances than with the right cape? Medieval coats and jackets are loose fitting and differ according to use. Whether magnificent jackets trimmed with fur for noblemen or the dark hooded cloaks of the servants – we have a large selection of medieval robes to wear.
The cloak for protection from the cold
Cloaks belong to every medieval scene and have their origin in everyday life of times long since past. The cloaks are, however, the most important and most desired garments of the maids and servants. They all possessed a cotton cloak
and they all wore it. It covers the entire body and retains the warmth under the material. Therefore it is suitable even in winter as a protection from the cold, and keeps the wearer covered. The simple coats and cloaks are made of cotton and fall over the shoulders. A cord at the front binds the cape firmly and provides for good stability. In addition, some models have a hood thus providing a mystical covering. The hood serves to hide you from enemies and makes the wearer almost unrecognisable. For even better protection in winter, the cloaks have sleeves and serve as thick coats. The coats have an even better stability with a clasp or a cord at the waist. Rummage through the rows of our medieval coats and select the model best suited for your purpose.
Precious items of velvet and fur
The coats of the noblemen are elaborately worked and are made of heavy velvet. With decorative stitching or fur they look particularly noble and elegant. In contrast, the captain’s coat has a long button border and top quality workmanship. Wizards' coats have long sleeves and a pointed hood. What’s the reason? The social rank of the wearer could often be deduced from the jacket or the coat. In the cold season, the coats were therefore not only a protection from the cold, but they also had to simultaneously outwardly symbolize the allegiance.
