A doublet is a man's snug-fitting jacket
that is shaped and fitted to the man's body which was worn in Western Europe in from the late Middle Ages through
to the mid-17th century. The doublet was hip length or waist length and worn over the shirt. Single fabric doublets
can be very basic or richly decorated by embroidery, cutwork, and other embellishments. Ours "standardly"
comes fully lined, with collar, shoulder wings, and a short 4-part skirting. As always, these can be customized
for your particular needs. Detachable sleeves are optional.
Single fabric doublets start
at $100. Many types of embroidery, slashing, and embellishment are seen in historic portraits on doublets
made of a singe fabric. Obviously, adding these decorative elements to your doublet would affect the cost.
Detachable sleeves are available and start at $50/pair.
