Roman-style clothing (2)

in the various countries in which this style was worn between the 9th and 12th centuries, there were many differences. The clothing of the governing and governed classes, however, differed only in fabric and decoration; there was very little difference in cut. Women's clothing was composed of an under- and outer dress; the undergarment reached to the foot and had long, narrow sleeves, while the outer garment was shorter, with sleeves reaching beyond the elbow. Married women wore headscarves or veils. Important garments for men were a tunic which reached to mid-calf and was often belted, and long trousers or stockings. Over the tunic a long coat of a heavyweight fabric was worn.
