Medieval Cotton Pants – Aesthetically Correct
One of the hallmarks of these Medival Cotton Pants is how seamlessly they blend into a variety of roleplaying and reenactment applications. The loose, pleated legs from waist to knee which quickly taper to a fitted calf section are archetypal enough to work for a range of medieval, Renaissance, and LARP character and profession concepts. Their secondary colours and details make them a possibility for Landsknecht, jesters, pikemen, or Renaissance footmen. The leg wraps securing everything in place below the knee are also a carefully reproduced, historically accurate detail.
Who Wore These Medieval Cotton Pants?
It’s believed Vikings used this kind of solution to hold their trousers in place to prevent tripping and tangling while sailing, working or engaged in battle. Anglo Saxons, Normans, and a variety of other European and global civilisations have employed the same style of leg wraps. It makes particular sense in cold climates. Making tight-fitting hose style pants became possible in the later Medieval Period but this style of pant was a feature of life for a long period of the middle ages due to its versatility, comfort, and ability to be adapted to fit another person as a hand-me-down.
Medieval Cotton Pants – Functionally Superior
As important as it is to have equipment that helps us get truly immersed in our hobby, dealing with some of the rough cloth and limited tailoring options of the Medieval and Renaissance Periods is not ideal. To this end, these Medieval Cotton pants have been made to offer 21st-century comfort blended seamlessly into a truly period-appropriate design. An elasticated waist means they’re comfortable all day, but they also feature belt loops to allow you attach any belt that works with your look. A generous fit from the waist to below the knee and superior twill cotton allow for maximum movement. A taper with to lower leg avoids tangling or tripping. The leg wraps further secure this part of the leg in place. Pockets are also a feature sometimes unavailable in the past but much appreciated today. These Medieval Cotton Pants are available for men, women, and children in a variety of colours and sizes and make a great starting point for a lot of great looks and character ideas.
