Fashion Rules!

A Closer Look at Clothing in the Middle Ages

Stuff your poulaines, lads; hold on to your henins, lasses; and button up your brocades if you’re upper class to join Bickford, a traveling jester, as he learns the do’s and don’ts of Medieval fashion and laws, which dictated everything from the length of sleeves and colors worn to the style and number of buttons permitted on a tunic. The book’s original artwork is interspersed with historical replicas and photographs to show off the complicated fads of the Middle Ages.
