Crowsnest "Cree" Buchanan's Pirate Sea Jerkin!
We hope you enjoy this sample of our work (Item no longerfor sale).|
Often the most overlooked aspect of renaissance and tudor history is life at sea. For those rare men with the fortitude to endure the rigors of piracy, nothing offered greater prospects of wealth or freedom. Brash, deadly, outrageous, and contemptibly clever, Misty Thicket Clothing is very pleased to indulge your imagination with our striking pirate sea jerkin.
Pirates were never known for their advanced taste in clothing; most fashion was dictated by chance of plunder more than aesthetics. Moreover, the sea air was notoriously corrosive to natural fibers, so that even the toughest leathers and linens were eventually given up to ruin. As a result, your average buccaneer often went barefoot on deck (for good footing), wore loose, button-up pants that came to just below the knee, and as many layers of linen or stout cotton as they could get against the cold. Our pirate sea jerkin is based on the seventeenth century in an Atlantic region legendary for its piracy: the Carribean.
To start with, the sea jerkin (often worn under a heavy wool pea coat) was wrought of good strong twill-weight cotton and buttoned up for warmth. We offer the long jerkin in your choice of colors (see below to order), and the garment will be made to fit your precise measurments.
