My time period is set to a medieval/renaissance (big difference yes I know, but bare with me) type technology/society period.
--What I'm looking for is general terms for articles of clothing for this type of time frame, most importantly formal clothing (think ball or banquet-type formal). Gowns and dresses for the ladies I know already, but what about the men? I know they didn't call men's formal attire "suits," did they?
--And also if you can give me the words for specific fashions of clothing aside from "trousers" "jerkin" "vest" and "cloak," I'd be grateful, too. :P
*bows to everyone* Many thanks to all your help here and in the past!
