Its one of our beloved Kentwellies wearing VERY VERY VERY short trunkhose. The picture I see is of a chap with a cod-piece; what's indecent about that? :shock: If he didn't have one and his own piece were clearly limned against his hose, that would be a different matter! :twisted: The importan ques...

Well, I propose to stick to the Elizabethan period, at least initially, so I suppose I can have knitted or woven hose, judging by the references provided earlier. Everyone's talking about knee-length hose, but the art suggests thigh- and even waist-length should be possible (e.g. Nicholas Hilliard's...

i thought everyone knew about the yellow hose! Have you done much school work before? I don't want to give you lots of advice only find out you've been doign this for years and it's useless to you I'd only heard of it in Shakespeare and the context seemed to suggest the colour was a whimsical sugge...

Hi Paul Welcome to the Tudor era. I notice that you say that your costume is "theatrical" standard. This will probably not meet the standards set for Kentwell nor the even higher standards of the "Tudor Group"!! :( No, I didn't think it would. I may have to get a new one made. Then again, I may jus...

It's possible I might try to join a group. I certainly want to try learning some Tudor dances, but my main aim is to add to my schools' repertoire, 'cos it's my livelihood.

So are you wooing then?
No, that was Lidimy. Does yellow hose signify wooing in the sense of courtship? I just wanted them to go with my doublet and trunk-hose, which are in shades of yellow, gold and brown.

The kind that are like tights or stockings, not round-hose or trunk-hose.
And a nice shade of yellow, I think.

. if you are dead set on buying clothing rather than making it, i dont really know how to help you too much, I've already bought a suit £385 for doublet, round-hose, thigh-boots and hat - seemed too good an opportunity to miss. but if you make it yourself (a lot more fun, and probably less expensiv...

I'm very new to Tudoring. I have one suit of clothes and am researching the period furiously. Fortunately, I learned a fair bit about it from my Theatre Studies. I know Annie, slightly, and I understand she has things other than clothes for sale. Is that right? I do four other periods already. Paul[...

Hi,

I've just taken up Tudoring, with my focus on the Elizabethan Age. Got some kit, where's it best to get more?
