  • I don't know who put the timing on the early period dress, but the actual article refers mostly to pre 1000 garments. Admittedly the changes from then to 1380 are fairly minor, but probably merit their own article.
  • does corpora require "an attempt to wear pre 17th C clothing" or to "wear an attempt at pre 17th C clothing" I see the former as allowing one to get slack about how hard you try to dress up ("I couldn't be bothered so I just wore a perfect 13th C cloak over my jeans"), and the latter to try and wear a set of clothing, the historical accuracy of which is permitted to be poor as long as you tried to make it medieval. - Tiff 11:24, 9 Aug 2005 (CDT)
    • Corpora says "Anyone may attend Society events provided he or she wears an attempt at pre-17th century clothing, conforms to the provisions in Corpora, and complies with any other requirements (such as site fees or waivers) which may be imposed. At business meetings and informal classes, the requirement to wear pre-17th century dress may be waived. All participants are expected to behave as ladies or gentlemen." - Cian Gillebhrath
