Vanderkamp, Gilly and Morris, Robert.
This volume is part of a series on clothing so far covering from 950A.D. to 1660 A.D. The start date of 1200 is fairly arbitrary but falls in a middle of a period of change starting in the last quarter of the 12th century when the first underwear is seen in illustrations of common men and finishing around 1230 when a number of major changes including the wearing of coifs by men and split front tunics appear.
The images have been taken from all available sources found so far; stained glass, misericords, floor tiles and wall paintings from churches, books of hours designed for personal devotions, Psalters, bibles and bestiaries. They have been selected to show the garments of the common man, the majority of the English male population.
