The doublet was a tight male shirt that was worn in Western Europe from the Middle Ages until the 17th century. Originally it was a shirt to be worn underneath a hauberk or cuirass to prevent grazes. Around the 15th century the doublet became more decorated and it was also worn separately.
Doublets like this are depicted on the tapestry of the Battle of Pavia by Bernard of Orley from the early 16th century. The doublet is made of wool and linen. Sewing machine patterns are not visible on the outside to preserve the historical look. On request it is also available hand-sewn.
