The term Burgundian clothing refers to clothing worn in the Burgundy region of France in the 15th century. This clothing is related to the houpelande, characterised by an outer garment which is very large and falls in many folds from the shoulders. Distinguishing features from the houpelande is the narrow body with a v-shaped opening at the front and typically tightly fited sleeves, often with a turned back cuff.
