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 paintings by the Renaissance painters Piero della Francesca, Pietro Perugino and Hans Memling. This doublet is made of a combination of linen and wool, velvet or thick cotton. The doublet can be closed with small buttons.
Sewing machine patterns are not visible on the outside to preserve the historical look. On request it is also available hand-sewn.
