Clothes of the Common People in Elizabethan and Early Stuart England: The English Abroad: Slaves, Colonists and Sailors
By Stuart Peachey
Englishmen Abroad provides a much-needed, topical look at the types of garments used at England's periphery and by some of the people who did not or could no longer call it their home. Sweeping down the Eastern coast of North America, Peachey provides insights into what settlers were advised to bring and what they actually wore, and touches on interactions and exchanges with Native American people and other European powers. This volume also offers scalable patterns of some of the relevant articles of clothing known to early 17th century mariners and colonists, which can be supplemented further by other volumes which go into more detail as to materials, accessories, and more.
