Much cheaper than Venice but I think it smells the same.

Yes the wedding pic is nice he looks better than on his own wedding.

But that's not Sean, right?  That's the kid - Philip Winchester.

I think somebody needs to get DNA samples from Sean and Philip . . .

Thank you for posting those Mike - they're lovely.

Not terribly accurate, historically (the wedding) but what the hay!

Thanks for the pictures!  People sure did have to wear a lot of clothes in those days, and those collars look so uncomfortable.  I would have hated to dress like that.

Actually, men's clothes were pretty comfortable at that point - and keep in mind that layers aren't necessarily a bad thing in a world without heating beyond what a fire could provide.

Most everything was made from wool and linen.  Very little cotton - some silk if you were wealthy.  The shirts were full sleeved, loose, and long - and they didn't have much collar at all; what you're looking at is the stock  The vests (called waistcoats) were more fitted; often they were the fanciest part of the outfit.  The coats (called  justaucorps) had pagoda sleeves and at that point in time they were fairly straight - later in the 18th century they began to mimic female dresses, with nipped in waists and full "skirts."  Fortunately, that style didn't last too long.  The shoes they're wearing are pretty much dead on the mark - Sean's shoes are the more formal dress heel (often the heels would be painted red, pink, or green).  The tongue is perfect, though they chose to leave off the buckle or bow that would normally have graced the shoe.  Philip's boots are a little on the narrow side for the period, but it may be that he had them pulled up rather than folded over.  Hard to tell.  Heels were lower for boots and for everyday shoes.  The breeches were probably pretty comfy - the design was not dissimilar to modern trousers and during the late 17th/early 18th c. they were fairly narrow, rather than wide, balloon legged things.

Of course, all that applies if you were male - for women, getting dressed was a royal pain.

Here's a shirt from the turn of the century:


Here's some images that show the difference between the coats of the late 16th/early 17th century (top two images - this is the Crusoe period) and the mid-18th century (bottom two images).

Wow--you're very knowledgeable!  I didn't know what season they are in, but I was thinking about summertime in the south, and how miserable those layers would be.

Lighty - Thanks for such interesting information.  I'm glad that you say the wardrobe is authentic for the period. Gives me hope they won't  modernize the story too much....
