Hi All, Firstly, Thank You everyone who has answered my question, I do appreciate it very much. The main reason I posted it was that I could at least look somewhere near whilst standing with other Vikings, and no be a laughing stock (more than usual that is). Only one clarification, with the unders...

Aelfric,
None taken, i was joking when i said i would get rid of my dresses. :lol:

WM, Sigurd, Can you point me in the direction of the illustations you are using, it would be good to see them for myself. Im not saying you are wrong, just want to have a look. Any period illustration of a male. Also I thought single leg hose were becoming increasingly popular by this time? That's ...

When the under tunics cuffs are longer, I find they bunch up and poke out under the upper tunic, I found this happened so had to he...
