"I am also about to start on a Landsknecht costume soon, but after reading parts of this I'm concerned.  If I use the Reconstructing History patterns (which I have) and I use the materials they suggest will it turn out crappy?  If…"

"I would be very interested to see examples of what you are describing from multiple artists and areas. Given the tendency for written records to cover most forms of socially derived clothing choices (outside of those dictated by personal preference…"

"Jamie,No problem I will look for the pictures and I am sure I will find them on wikipedia. I found my picture there as well so I think there will be no problem with it."

"Hendrik, Thanks for your response. I agree with many of your comments. I have not been able to find specific sumptuary laws regulating hat styles. However, I feel the visual evidence indicates that there is something being communicated by particular…"

"I sincerely doubt the validity of your hat-hierarchy theory. The clothing regulations I have seen from the early 16th century usually are not that specific and rather tend to regulate things like how valuable the jewellery may be or how many much…"

"Viktor, Glad I could help. To see what I believe is a good representation of the "hierarchy of men's hats", check out the donor and his sons in Durer's "Lamentation for Christ" for the Holzschuher family. I think…"

"These hats show up in lots of Durer's landsknecht images. They seem to be a large fur-felt hat decorated with a ribbon chin-strap and ostrich plumes. I found a large shaggy felted knit hat that I wet molded to the desired shape. From the visual…"
