Żupan

The daily mans’ garment worn across Central and Eastern Europe by everyone from wealthy noblemen down to poor soldiers and townspeople. Materials varied by your wealth. Wealthy nobles wore colorful żupans often in red and gold, made of fine brocades, high quality wools and silks. Others wore blues, greens, yellow or orange żupans made from often homespun wools and linens. Poorer folks wore earthier colors such as tans, browns, and especially gray.

Our historical seamstress and tailors will recreate for you the unique charachteristics such as cording, stiching, and buttons that make your garment truly period Polish, Hungarian, Cossack et cetera.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Hats & Caps

Let us create for you a kołpak fur cap that matches your żupan. These can be made from real or faux fur. Each of the social classes, and nations, had slight variations in their caps. Wool or felt Magierka caps, like the one on the right, were worn in warmer weather and were common among infantrymen.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Sashes

No nobleman’s outfit would be complete without a woven sash. These historic recreations are made in Poland by an artisan, friend and nobleman (shown left). He has provided these sashes to historical Polish films for years.

These sashes can be worn four different ways, showing off different color paterns.

See a video showing a sash and how to tie it.

Please contact me to see our inventory. I have a number of sashes to choose from.

Delias Cloaks & Kontusz Coats

Very wealthy noblemen wore delia cloaks often made from fine wool or brocade, and lined with silk or fur.

Kontusz coats were worn by all classes, but more commonly among the middle class and poorer nobles. They were made from homespun wools and / or linen.

Like other garments we create our cloaks and coats are inspired by period portraits of nobles and warriors.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Wall Tapestries & Faux Leopard Cloaks

Adorn your walls and display your weaponry in traditional Polish style with a copy of a period wall tapestry. These would be found in nobles’ manor houses, palaces and castles.

Leopard and other exotic animals were worn by the wealthiest knights in Central Europe during this time period. These are an esential part of your Polish or Lithuanian kit. These of course are made out of faux fur fabric today, and are held in place by historicly inspired hand made clasp sets from Poland.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Undershirts & Pants

Linen undershirts would be worn under żupan by men or under dresses by ladies. These come in plain, or with hand embroidered stitching at the collars.

Period pants come in a variety of styles, either very tight fitting riding trousers, like the hussar to the right, or they can be baggy like the Cossack ‘Sharovary’ pants. Pants come in wool or linen. Linen is far less itchy, but wool is warmer. Most pants were blue, black, green, or earthier browns, tans and grays for poorer people.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Belts & Jewlery

Saber belts are specially constructed for easy attachment, adjustability, at the waist and for the angle how your saber hangs. Saber belts can be made with precious stones on the fittings, or simple. Period colors were most commonly black and brown.

Both men and ladies wore jeweled broaches on their caps and jeweled clasp sets to fasten their cloaks.

To order, contact Eryk at eryksj@gmail.com.

Period inspired necklaces, rosaries, broaches, and other custom jewelry complete an authentic reenactment kit.
