Hose, Boots, Shirt
The costume starts with dark tan knit hose. Over this is a
pair of nearly knee-high brown leather boots, turned down to
reveal a collar of the same soft auburn leather as Edmund's
camp tunic. From the Parley image, his boots look to lace
up to the outside of the calves.
A sky-blue, longsleeved shirt is worn, with a rounded
neck and long sleeves, unfitted until they button snugly up
the forearm in six tan buttons. It appears, however, that four
of the buttons are false, running along an outer seam, and only
the two closest to the wrist are functional.
The body of the cotehardie is rather loose, and under the belt
it folds at the sides under the jerkin slit, giving the appearance
The fabric looks like a coarse plain weave: the warp is a brighter,
lighter blue, making the weave stand out more. It looks to be
wool or a wool blend - perhaps a linsey-woolsey?
The burgundy leather jerkin is worn over the cotehardie: it's
only slightly longer, split at the sides from the waist down.
It's a straight tunic, no shaping.
The neck is rounded with a short V slit, overcast in tan. Here
we can see the facing at the neck. The sleeve caps are also
The back of the jerkin is laced up, from neck to waist. The
criss-cross lacing draws the seam together exactly.
On each side at the split, the front of the tunic has three
buttons spaced evenly about an inch from the hem. We can see
the buttons well in this
image, and the corresponding button holes quite well in
this image. Though
meant to button up the split, we see it unbuttoned all throughout
The jerkin folds up a bit under his red belt with gold buckle,
attached to his matching sword sheath, his gifts
from Father Christmas, also worn with his Armor.
