About our Men's Medieval Surcoat

A classic medieval men's over-layer throughout the 12th, 13th and 14th centuries the surcoat was worn both on and off the field for centuries. While generalities can be made about this evolving garment, throughout the centuries, beginning as longer, more voluminous style and gradually becoming shorter and more fitted, it can be said to be a ubiquitous men's garment for hundreds of years.

We have chosen to make a longer, sleeveless version with large armholes and full skirts, and is meant to be belted to fit. As the perfect 'canvas' for your heraldry on the field, a covering for your armour or as lightweight layer to dress-up your basic tunic, our Men's Medieval Surcoat can serve many purposes. It has 'riding slits' in front and back for more ease of movement on and off the field both neck and armholes are finished with self-bias edging.
