Tudor Boy - Perfect for Tudor Day. From The Tudor Collection

Tudor fashion focussed closely on the preferences of the ruling monarch of the day. Henry VIII was very proud of his wide shoulders and fashion exaggerated the male figure with robes that hung from the shoulder. Elizabeth I was very fond of the colours white, red, black and gold, and her courtiers chose to wear these colours when in her company, possibly as a sign of loyalty. The rest of society favoured more subdued colours and would have had one or two outer garments with smocks and undershirts being the only items that could be washed easily.

Wealthy Tudor Boy £26

Children continued to be dressed as replicas of their parents in Tudor times, so we have created a doublet (jacket) and hose (pants) that have a Tudor boy feel but won’t scare our modern lads off the idea of dressing up for Tudor Day! They will however, have to wear tights with the outfit to complete the look!
