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.

We have received many requests from customers who like the comfort and fit of our joined hose but who do not need or want a cod-piece or lacing points for any variety of reasons. For those customers, we are pleased to now offer our new, “simple” cotton-knit joined hose. The cotton closely replicates the fit of our 15th century joined hose, but with simpler line. Made with of the same stretch cotton blend (5% lycra) as our regular 15th c. joined hose, our simple hose have a plain, smooth front, no attached foot. An inexpensive substitute for our 15th century joined hose or medieval chauses when worn with tunicscottes or arming clothes and period shoes since with these items you can only see the middle of the leg, making them an acceptable substitute for our regular hose when authenticity is less of a concern.

    They are my 4th pair. I wear them with linenshirts around the house when I am not at events.

    These hose are so comfortable. I with I could wear my medieval clothes every day.

    These are my favorite “hosen” for daily wear. They’re easy to wear. I don’t have to worry about tying authentic hosen to my undergarments, and I can wear comfortable socks instead of dealing with the built-in socks of authentic hosen. The only complaint I have is that these hose eventually wear out and the elastic waist band tears off at the stitch line. I just bought two more of these hose to replace the old ripped pair that I have.

    Well made quality. As soft, durable and comfortable as I would have expected medieval-style hose to be. Revival knows and takes pride in their work.
