This is a wonderful book on tudor clothing. It includes not only the noble, but styles from just about every walk of life (including sailors!) It has hundreds of wonderful pictures, but I was disappointed that only a very few were in color and of the entire outfit. This book is very technical, more for someone who really likes the research aspect of historical fashion.

I love this book. This is one of the best ever published on Tudor fashion. It spans over 120 years of some of the richest times in fashion history in its 832 fantastic pages. The color plates are a joy to behold (the one of Elizabeth of York is my fave) and this is a remarkable book for all.
