We love fashion here at Rouges and the history of fashion and clothing and what people have worn through the ages is a particular fascination. In this video, we found an example of what it was like to dress as a ploughman in the 14th century. Historical fashion usually covers the dress of the upper classes. But thanks to a local clergyman, we have a view of what a working class person would have worn in his daily toil.
In an age before pants, as we know them and when male fashion was longer and more draped, we bring you the outfit of a 14th century ploughman.
