English clothing from the reign of Henry VII through the coronation of Elizabeth I. Often refered to as late period. Less flamboyant than the later Elizabethan clothing or the contemporary Landsknecht style on the continent. In men's clothing, the shortening of the tunic lead the greater importance of the cod piece.

A noticable element of Tudor clothing (for both men and women) was the use of Blackwork embroidery. This type of embroidery was used on the smock, on collars and cuffs and also around the neckline of the smock.
