This much-anticipated package has done for Elizabethan gentlemen what our first release did for Elizabethan ladies; provide an expertly drafted, thoroughly researched suite of patterns for a broad range of styles and sizes.

When combined with our Elizabethan Accessories package, it forms the foundation of a complete set of upper-class men's costumes, perfect for Renaissance Faires, theatrical productions, or historical reenactors. With variations in style and materials, these patterns are perfectly accurate for individuals ranging down through the middle class and even some of the lower classes. (Details are given in the pattern manual.)

In addition, the package comes with extensive instructions: 175 pages of fully illustrated text, 3-hole punched for insertion in a binder.
