About our Undertunic 

 

From late Antiquity through the early 14th century, the basic male ensemble for all levels of society was a combination of a linen shirt or tunic worn under a second, colored tunic or dalmatic; only size, fullness of cut, sumptuousness of fabric and detail of decoration denoting any real difference in status. In the 11th century the tunic began to grower longer and fuller, a trend that continued with the ankle-length bliauts and dalmatics that were popular with men in the 12th century. We have chosen to produce a style of long, shaped but flowing undertunic popular in Europe during this period and throughout most of the Byzantine era. Made of 100% white linen, this tunic a comfortable undergarment that can also be worn by itself for informal occasions, such as lounging around camp during hot summer days.

Note: We give the general sizing guidelines on our 12th century Undertunic because it is meant to fit loosely for a flowing silhouette when worn under our Supertunic and belted to complete the look (as shown in our photos). The length given is that of the Underertunic unbelted. Please note that although the size given is quite generous once belted this style looks very good on smaller and larger folks and those in between, as can be seen on our models.
