Short cotte 13th century
The cotte (tunic) is a woollen garment, sometimes lined, worn over the shirt.
In the 13th century, it was knee-length for modest statuses, but the richer ones could also wear it for practical reasons (hunting, horse riding for example).
It has a loose fit and is worn with a belt.
The collar is fitted and can have several fastening systems. The most common is the amigaut (central slit) which is closed by a brooch or a lace.
The sleeves, wide from the shoulder, are adjusted on the forearm. Depending on the status, they can be closed with buttons, discreet lacing or nothing (more modest status).
Historically, it is worn bloused at the level of the belt, this one will be dissimulated in the folds of fabric.
It can be split at the front and back.
The cotte will continue to exist in the 14th and 15th century with some modifications (shape of the sleeves, width, collar), for the modest statuses.

Pourpoint of Charles de Blois
The pourpoint of Charles de Blois is a garment that is in an excellent state of preservation.
The artefact dates from 1364, and several miniatures show similar garments throughout the second half of the 14th century.
It has numerous buttons on the sleeves and on the central opening.
It comes down quite low (it will cover the braies) and has laces attached on the lining side to fasten the later separate hoses.
It has the particularity of sculpting the silhouette by making a fine waist and a bulging torso, and of having sleeves called "à grande assiettes", with armholes that go very far towards the centre of the bust.
This type of garment could be worn in both civilian and military costume.It seems that there were many variations (lacing on the bottom and buttoning on the bust), with or without buttons on the sleeves, etc.
