I am a member of a french 14th century re-enactment group portraying a band of routiers. Lately i have noticed that several members of the group are dressing according to the descriptions of 14th century fashion ie tailored cotehardies with many buttons and tight buttoned sleeves, two coloured leggings etc Surely a band of routiers who were mainly ex soldiers living off the land would not be dressed in this way? Comments please;
