A list of commonly referred to and controversial clothing styles in the SCA

Some of these are misnomers, unrepresentative of the breadth of clothing of the medieval period, or are often poorly reproduced. However, they are the style names current in Lochac, and a beginner costumer will often encounter them. A good glossary of such terms (in their many uses) can be found at the following external link: Marc Carlson's "Some Clothing of the Middle ages; Glossary"
