English: Man's Doublet

Glazed linen embroidered with linen thread
Made in England

Linen was normally used for linings or underwear. However, the elaborate embroidery and buttons on the doublet indicate that it was formal dress. The light colour of the fabric suggests summer wear. The seams on each sleeve and at the back were left open to let the short show through. A pair of breeches in matching fabric would have been worn with this doublet, with a cape to complete the gentleman's outfit.

The linen has not been dyed but bleached and glazed instead to give a uniform colour and a firm texture on which to embroider. Back stitch, French knots and couching in fine linen thread comprise a pattern of geometric and floral motifs. Linen thread, hand plaited and sewn over a wooden core in a technique known as passementerie, forms the decorative buttons.
