Pirates Shirts of the Golden Age

Havin' a good shirt is all part o' assemblin' the best pirate outfit! Arrr shirts be authentic to the 15th Century-18th Century. Prior to the Napoleonic Era, many shirts did not feature prominent collars, n' consistently they were long sleeved regardless o' the climate ye found yarself in.


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 normal fer men to have their own wigs n' heeled footwear. Heels fer example helped ye ride a horse, n' even if ye didn't have a horse it was in style partially fer that reason. Shirts would have as many ruffles as possible! To guarantee accuracy we have a large rack o' ruffly shirts fer yar outfit.

As far as shirts go, it be custom at Pirate Fashions to pick a Piratical Style- Rough or Fancy. We don't recommend goin' fer somethin' in between as the outfit pieces begin to clash.  The Rough look be good fer the pirate whose been lost at sea or down on his luck, while the Fancy Pirate wears their wealth n' consorts with governors. Ruffled shirts would be part o' the Fancy Pirate's Garb.

All of arrr clothing has its own washing instructions! Have a care when ye browse Arrr stock!

The Piratical Duchess with all the Right Colors

The most important thing about bein' a pirate is style! N' part o' that means bein' able to pick the right colors! We be experienced Salts when it comes to assemblin' the ideal wardrobe n' pickin' the right color combinations. An outfit like the Piratical Duchess lets us show off Arrr Range o' Fabric combos.



This be an elegant pirate outfit that lets ye dress fer a party or historical occasion, while also letting you mix n' match a variety o' colors. It was more historically accurate to have a fairly monochromatic outfit excluding black n' white, but we believe it's important to have contrast.



Fer example: a matte black combines well with a bright red. Arrr eyes be more receptive to the stark changes n' though it's not always the case- contrasting colors are visually pleasing most o' the time.

Francois l'Olonais, The Bane of Spain

Some pirates have a reputation for malevolence and savagery, but none have warranted the reputation more than the legendary scallywag known as Francois l'Olonnais, the Scourge of the Spanish! Much of Arrr Information about l'Olonnais (Pronounced Low-Low-Nay) is gathered from Alexander Exquemlin's Accounts n' can be taken with a hefty grain of salt, yet there is such detail!

For much of his life, l'Olonnais was an indentured servant when he arrived in the Caribbean sometime in the 1650's. Indentured Servants were one step above slaves in the New World, being bound to harsh working conditions by a binding contract. People in Europe could be kidnapped and sold into Indentured Servitude. The major difference would be that there was a theoretical end to the contract with a reward upon conclusion. It was banned by the United Nations alongside Slavery in 1948.

l'Olonais completed his contract by 1660 n' promptly made way to Haiti where he became a Buccaneer. A few years into his career he and his mates shipwrecked off the coast of Campeche, Mexico where they were massacred by the Spanish Army. l'Olonnais only survived by hiding among the dead. With the help of Spanish slaves he escaped to Tortuga, only to return later with a thirst for vengeance.

He and his crew promptly took settlements hostage, to which the Spanish responded with military force. l'Ollonais beheaded all but one of the men sent against him, whom he told to spread a message, "I shall never henceforward give quarter to any Spaniard whatsoever."


In 1666, he sailed to Maracaibo, Venezuela with a crew of 440 Pirates to sack the city with great success. To gather information about hidden valuables, l'Olonais flayed his victims, burned them alive, or squeezed them to death by strapping them tightly to a mast.

After several years of increasingly larger feats of piracy, l'Olonais wrecked his ship on an expedition to Honduras, only to allegedly be devoured by cannibalistic natives! http://bit.ly/2lRL7nb

Many of Arrr weapons be designed in-house n' proof tested to ensure reliability. Some of these Pirate Fashions Designs result in Firearms ye will not find anywhere else on the Seven Seas!

For most merchants if ye were to fire the weapon at all ye would void yar warranty, think about that when you're looking for yar ideal pistol or rifle! Because of the Flintlock n' Pre-Flintlock Firing Systems they are defined as Antique Weapons by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco n' Firearms.

Though they be easy to purchase, we advise ye that polite society will still regulate where ye be carrying yar weapon as it is not a toy!

The Pirate Fashions Flogger

The Pirate Fashions Flogger

To ensure discipline on-board a ship, the British Royal Navy would frequently use a Flogger to literally whip the lads into shape! Floggers utilized multiple strips o' knotted leather to flay flesh from bone as a form o' punishment. Naturally freedom lovin' pirates scorned such tools as most had been on the receivin' end of such brutality.

Also naturally, there be a certain kinky quality to a good ol' flogging with the right materials! We created Arrr own floggers made with softened strips o' leather that be perfect for yar own fantasies n' bedroom antics!
