The doublet was a tight shirt for men 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.
This doublet is made of wool and has a linen lining. It is based on the doublets that are depicted by the Renaissance painters, for example Piero della Francesco, Pietro Perugino and Hans Memling (International Gothic). Sewing machine patterns are not visible on the outside to preserve the historical look. On request it is also available handmade.
