The cotte (tunic) is worn over the shirt. It is loose fitting and has sleeves that are adjusted on the forearm by small buttons.
For a nobleman or rich bourgeois, it is long (ankles) and ample, made of a bright coloured wool lined with silk.
Historically, it is worn bloused at the waist. It is often seen slit in the front and back in the centre. The collar is fitted and slit.
