I think I've got a reference to the old coats being "turned" when they became waistcoats...have a feeling it's from Marlborough's time...will have a look.

Surely it would be "Sir Alain"....?.....In a non-condescending way,the style has a bit of period charm....like Sabatini or Conan Doyle,'tho I'm sure that's not conscious.

Not an expert,but think the main difference is doublet cut...no collar,square-cut neck,& "wrap-over" front..oh,..& no "pointy" shoes....
Osprey "Landsknecht Warrior" gives a good idea if you ignore Germanic over-decoration!

Hey Marcus,...It's the TYW...of course the bad guys are Catholic!....but seriously,Flint does say it's the Catholic RULERS who are the "Evil Empire"....in fact a lot of Grantville's population come to be Down-time Catholics...You may gather I'm a big fan.............

Also recommend his trilogy "Julian".."A most English agent",&"A New Nation"...hard to categorise but goes from the Peninsula to the Alamo...also his "The Last English king",the story of Harold told by one of his Huscarls.

Of course,if you do the enlightened 18th cent it's not a problem...except for anti-catholic riots...or viewing Quebec as the seat of the Anti-Christ in America...& those pesky Methodists...but,other than that,it's very enlightened!
