Early baroque male clothing

 This dress represents functional clothes for casual wear without wasted trimming.  Still such clothing follows prevailing fashion including a high waistline and pleated breeches. The outfit consists of breeches with pockets and a doublet, which are at the waistline joined by hooks and rings. It is made of woolen twill with linen lining according to a damask doublet and breeches, c. 1630 (Victoria & Albert Museum, London). The outside shape is partly inspired by a doublet and breeches, England, c. 1625 1635 (Victoria & Albert Museum, London). The separate linen band and cuffs are worn with a doublet.
