Men’s Medieval Renaissance Cloaks & Capes

Men's Medieval Renaissance Capes and Cloaks Intro Image

During the Dark Ages, and moving into the Medieval period, men were still wearing loose rectangular shaped cloaks held together at the neckline with brooches, metal clasps, or buttons. Animal skins were often worn like capes, or capelets, over the shoulders of the cloaks with the fur showing outward. The cloaks were usually made of wool, however, cloaks made of animal skins with the fur turned inward were also worn for warmth during the frigid winters.
