Bremen no.19

This pair of hose were found in grave #19 in Bremen, Northern Germany, and dated to 13th century. Though the two hose were supposed to be worn together, they were asymmetric and had different lengths. Here we are showing but one of them, for simplicity. Note that while each hose was fitted pretty well to the body and covered the whole leg, including the foot, it was not worn tight.
