Men’s Tudor Era Fashion

Another way to enhance the sleeve detail was to have huge billows of fabric that came from the shoulder to the elbow and then a straight sleeve from the elbow down would be slashed. If a man wore “puffed” sleeves like this, then the over coat would be sleeveless. (My resource for most of my info. in this post comes from my fave costume book, Historic Costumes and How to Make Them by Mary Fernald and E. Shenton.)
