Note: Please note, with the difficulty of accurately representing colors on a variety of monitors, the color names are meant as descriptions along with the swatches. Please use both when deciding on what color to order. Also, despite how the colors may appear on your monitor the same color names in Wool, Silk and Linen are different and do not exactly coordinate.

The ubiquitous tunic extends back into antiquity and was the common over garment of lord and peasant alike for centuries. Even as the nobility began adopting more elaborate clothing in the 14th century, the simple tunic remained in use. To complement the rest of our line, we’ve chosen to base our design on a specific, late 14th century example – the tunics so beautifully depicted in the illuminated hunt book of Gaston Phebus, Count of Foix. This full, pullover tunic has long, ample sleeves with narrow cuffs and a keyhole neckline. Depending on the wearer’s height, the tunic will fall between mid-thigh and knee-length.

Simple, comfortable and affordable, the tunic is an ideal garment for wearing around camp, when you’re out and about during the day, or as an introductory way to begin sprucing up your wardrobe. Wear it with chausses, braies and one of our three styles of hood, and you’ll be surprised at how quickly it dresses up.

    I love these tunics, and they have become the mainstay of my wardrobe. I now have three, and plan to add one more.

    burgundy color was a bit different than what was shown on the website. was a bit more cool toned than expected.

    Quality garment, fits well, looks great. Hems are clean. The color “sage” is quite a bit darker than the color shown in the photo, the actual color is more of a darker olive drab.

    Product is as described. I don’t know how authentic the rich green color may be but it is beautiful. Haven’t washed it yet; if it doesn’t shrink the fit will remain excellent.
