They were also baggy n' loose. We still make'em this way to give ye the most authentic outfit. There were other drastically different fashion styles from this time period, it was normalfer men to have their own wigs n' heeled footwear. Heelsfer example helped ye ride a horse, n' even if ye didn't have a horse it was in style partiallyfer that reason. Shirts would have as many ruffles as possible!
