Medieval Men's Braies

Linen underpants with gusset

You asked for it, and we were listening. Finally, medieval men's underwear by ArmStreet is available, so get in quick to have the most fashionable underwear of all of your friends!
When it comes to men’s underwear in the middle ages, one generally thinks of a tunic, hosen, and some kind of short breeches called braies. Spacious and effortless, these braies can be called small only when comparing them with the bigger braies; still, they seem to be quite voluminous for those who are used to modern underwear.

Not a single pair of original medieval braies has survived the rigors of history, but the illustrations show them somewhat baggy, with a lowered crotch and the legs gathered at the knees. We’ve made ours close to the Moscevaja Balka pattern shown below, while the Morgan Bible shows similar designs, so presumably, the cut didn’t change significantly during the Middle Ages.
The only difference from the original pattern is the belt - we found that inserting it through the pre-punched holes is tedious. We've fixed this by substituting it with a drawstring at the waistband which makes for effective and comfortable suspension and gathers a considerable amount of fabric around the waist. In all other respects, the pattern was reproduced exactly to a T, so the braies consist of five parts: two trouser legs, two central inserts, and the gusset which connects them.

The material is fine flax linen, white and natural, common for the medieval underwear. Broad around the hips and in upper leg, they allow excellent freedom of movement. Note, the braies leg is loose and wide, much wider than the actual thigh circumference, and has a sewn-in drawstring tie at bottom leg for an easy fit.

    Can these be custom-made for a woman's measurements?

    ArmStreet Team:

    These pants are unisex. They come in fixed sizes only and cannot be made in custom size, unfortunately.

    Great fit another pants to my collection i can wear them with my Viking sandals or boots

  • Rachel 12 of May 2020:

    I really like the length of these braies as they are less likely to ride up and out the top of separate hose. They also fit well worn on the natural waist. I wish there was a smaller size to fit women or slim men-- the small was ok on me but definitely had a bit too much excess fabric.

  • Philip  12 of May 2020:

    Great, lend an authentic feel to any kit.

  • Odin 13 of October 2019:

    These braies are very comfortable to wear, especially as it gets warmer. I would highly recommend them.

  • Richard 29 of July 2019:

    Underpants size run to the large size I ordered without thinking. 32 in waist in us is a size medium. Yours are very large. I should of looked at the size chart. I would of ordered a small. Size chart should be emphasized more. Quality is perfect. Tunic is perfect. Thanks
