How People Were Defined Through Their Medieval Clothing
If you were to live in the medieval age before, you would most certainly have been identified by class according to the kind of clothes you wore. The noble families before wore their clothes according to the latest trends as well, such as the latest colors that was in style that time as well as the silk robes and the damask gowns that identifies the class they were in. Peasants on the other hand can only afford clothing made out of tunic. These clothing that were mentioned are surely going to get very uncomfortable during the summer if it were still the ones worn up until today because it’s made out of rough and itchy material plus it’s rather kind of difficult to wash and also it takes longer to dry off as well. But people during those time depended upon their wealth as to which kind of clothing they will be able to buy. While families of richer class can wear the smoothest and silkiest of silks and stay comfortable the whole day, those who are rather poor would have to settle for the uncomfortable kind of clothes.
It was thanks to the kings and their queens of that era that medieval clothes were that way. If you look back carefully, you will be able to see how distinctive people and society were used to be when it came to the money that they had, dictating which clothing suits the rich and which ones should be handed down to the poor.
The noble families even had the luxury of having clothes made only for themselves and they have the privilege to have a whole lot of them without having to worry about not affording them the next time. These families could afford the rarest materials that they could afford and they could couple it up with the most expensive jewelries in their kingdom, making it really very clear that they are indeed one of the noble families in their time. While down where the peasants live, they had to trade all the gold they can afford for clothes that barely make them comfortable, plus they have to make it for themselves as well because it’s not often that they find someone else to do that for them.
