Delve into our assortment and become a man-at-arms, herald or travelling merchant. The shirt was the central item of clothing in the Middle Ages. People wore shirts under their outer clothing or adorned themselves with the noble shirt over their tunic.
The shirt as the most important garment in the Middle Ages
The medieval shirt was often a simple garment made of a tightly woven fabric to keep warm. For the upper classes, however, it was often also a festively decked-out affair to show off their nobility and origins. In the Middle Ages, the shirt was the first garment worn after birth and the last garment worn on the deathbed.
The nobleman dressed in the finest shirts made of fine Belgian linen. The day labourer had to make do with the simplest shirts made of coarse wool - but everyone wore a shirt in the Middle Ages.
