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.
A doublet like this is depicted on the painting ?the three magii? by Benozzo Gozzoli from the 15th century. This doublet is made of a combination of linen with wool, velvet or thick cotton with damask sleeves. It can be fastened 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.
