Men and women wore linen shirts or „camises“ as undergarments. We are not sure about the women, but men wore linen underpants. These were wide, quite baggy things just above or just over the knee. Over this, men wore loose “beenlingen” or „hozen“. These were loose, quite tight trouser legs with a foot. As upper garment, they wore an „onderrock“ and a „rock“. The first is a simple tunic with long sleeves. The „rock“ is no more then a wider „onderrock“ made of thicker cloth, usually wool. The „rock“ usually had a different colour than the „onderrock“. Women wore socks until the knee which were fastened with a garter of rope, leather or a strand of textile. Over this, they wore a linen or thin woollen “onderrock” and a thicker woollen “rock”. Both of them reached the feet, had long sleeves, a round neck hole and a wide skirt. Over their “rock”, women wore a “suckenie”, a kind of sleeveless tunic which was open until the hips.
Both men and women wore a belt around their waste. Usually it was made out of leather, in some cases with nice patterns of punch work or cutting work. Married women and nuns wore a headscarf. Men wore a hat or a “caperken”, a white linen cap fastened under the chin by a strap.
In rain or cold weather, medieval people wore a hood with a shoulder mantel in one piece. Most medieval people wore leather shoes or boots.
