A list of commonly refered to and controversial clothing styles in the SCA

Some of these are misnomers, unrepresentative of the breadth of clothing of the medieval period, or are often poorly reproduced. However, they are the style names current in Lochac, and a beginner costumer will often encounter them.

  • generic early period t-tunic
  • "10 gore dress" - a 14th century style worn by Vikings in Greenland. It adds side gores and more advanced sleeve caps (early set in sleeves) on a basic T-tunic to give more shaping to a gown.
  • viking clothing - most often used to refer to early period Scandinavians, i.e. men in t-tunics and leg wraps, and women in the controversial to reconstruct "apron dresses"
  • Burgundian
  • Norman bliaut
  • Italian Renaissance - actually refers to a variety of substyles, all of which have in common
    • For women- a dress with a seam at the waist, pleated on skirts below and a corseted bodice above.
    • For men- doublets worn above tights is mostly the fashion (although longer robes also exist). See Florentine, Venetian, Flemish clothing.
  • Elizabethan dress
  • great-kilt - read carefully, there are many misconceptions about this article of clothing, which is a belted cloak worn in late medieval Scotland, not the modern pleated skirt.
