Monsieur Jean-Pierre's Mercenary Ensemble
Bonjour les amis! Misty Thicket Clothing is pleased
to offer you a full Menís 13th-18th C. French Mercenary Ensemble
to tie together our Peasant
Pants and Jerkin. Our French poet shirt is ideal for the noble, the common
man, the sell-sword, or the rogue! The yoked shoulders offer a comfortable
fitted drape while accenting the billowed gathers at the sleeves
and base! The collared and reinforced neckline is adorned with a
self tie through durable grommets, so you can tie the neck closed. The sleeves are VERY full
and end in a ruffled wrist (elastic 9").
The shirt is made from your choice of natural cotton muslin, a
cotton/polyester blend, or the more period accurate
linen. It is extremely comfortable to wear, and is the perfect addition to your Renaissance persona. They are truly
at home with our jerkin and pants!
Whether you are farming, fighting, or feasting, these peasant pants are smart and durable and will stand up to every abuse you can dish out. You can wear them over your footwear for common comfort, lace them over your legs, or 'blouse' them into your boots for a 'bout of fighting or a day of riding.
The waist is an adjustable drawstring for a comfortable fit within your specified waist size. All seams have been serged and the hems finished to provide you with years of wear and tear.
The fabric is easy to care for and can simply be machine-washed when needed. See our swatch card below for available colours.
The finishing touch is our short jerkin. Made of a durable Cotton Twill, the material is supple but remains stout enough for the most active French adventurer. The Jerkin is lined and all seams are hidden and nicely finished. Several grommets down the centre offer additional durability (as opposed to button holes which become worn after time) with leather lacing adorning the front. The Jerkin falls to the waist (not the hips) and will fit almost anyone. Taken together we are sure you agree, the effect is both charming and functional! As always we welcome custom orders on this ensemble so feel free to e-mail us with your personal touches!
