Beginning with the layer closest to the body and ending with the outermost garment, describe the layers of garments that men and women would have worn in the 10th and 11th centuries. MEN:
We start with underclothing consisting of undershirts and drawers. Undershirts, sometimes referred to as chemises, were short-sleeved linen garments. Underdrawers, called braies, were loose-fitting linen breeches fastened at the waist with a belt. Men often wore an outer and under tunic. Usually both were the same length although sometimes the under tunic was slightly longer and therefore visible at the lower edge of the garment. When short in length, outer tunics were almost always made with close-fitting sleeves. Sometimes sleeves extended over the hand with the excess fabric pushed up into folds above the wrist.
Long outer tunics were made either with fitted sleeves, or (more often) cut wide and full, allowing the sleeve of the under tunic to show. Tunic necklines were round or square. These garments were usually belted at the waist. The fabrics most frequently used were linen and wool. The poor wore wool almost exclusively. Silk was imported by the very well-to do. Social class distinctions were evident in length of the tunic and its decoration. Outer tunics of the wealthy were decorated with bands of silk embroidery at neck, sleeves, and hem.
The nobility and the clergy wore long flowing robes for ceremonial occasions. For hunting and warfare men of all classes wore more practical short tunics. Men in important political or religious positions wore mantles draped like Greek himations for ceremonial events over the other garments. Also, leg bandages or hose were worn to cover the legs and closely fitted shoes generally ending at the ankle or they wore decorated boots.
early middle ages
How did the production of silk contribute to the spread of Byzantine style influences to Western Europe?
The Byzantines began to be the only ones exclusively producing silk fabrics to eh Western world. The emperor even exploited his monopoly by charging enormous prices for the fabrics; therefore, only the wealthiest Europeans could afford the fabric. Brocades woven in Byzantium were especially desirable. Since they were the only ones selling it, the designs were exclusively Byzantine styles and they spread all over to those who could afford it. early middle ages
