Sally Green Historical Costumes
10am. to 8pm (10.00-20.00) GMT
We are not serious all the time but we take our fun seriously.
More here later, try the 15th and 17 century buttons for now. Here are some cloaks and boots, no right minded assassin goes out on a cold night without a nice, black Sally Green Hooded Cloak round them.
Our cloaks are made with function in mind. They are thick, hard wearing, durable and above all keep you warm. That is their purpose, they are made out of thick coating quality wool, and are lined in heavy cotton for strength. They are hemmed at the bottom, no half measures, leaving unhemmed edges is sloppy workmanship. The hood is not the floppy, fall over your face fanciful "widow's" style, it sits properly on your head as it should do. The neckline is correctly shaped and as a consequence the cloak will not ride back and strangle you, it will hang about the shoulders equally.

A cheaper alternative to the Hooded Cloak, these are simple, single button fastening cloaks without hood or lining. They are the most basic protection against the weather that has been devised since time began and ideal for living history. We also supply separate full, lined hoods if you so require.
Size: Standard. Heavy wool version costs £5 more postage.

Bucket Top Boot
Please note we are discontinuing this line after the end of 2013. The famous, stylish Bucket Top Boot cuts a dashing sight on anyone. This are seriously well made riding boots, tough, hard wearing, solid. Reinforced at the heel, and hardened at the toe, which means if horse stands on your foot - you've got an outside chance of getting away undamaged. Unless you have a sadistic horse. Thick, hard leather soles, they are working boots, complete with "Butterflies" included in the price to protect against wear from stirrup irons. The real magic is in the imterlace lining inside the leg of the boot, which allows the movement of air up through the boot and reduces the heat and moisture of clammy, sweaty feet inside.
Size: Standard, UK sizes 5 to 12 in stock except Size 9, black colour only.
Prices from: £175 Goto Top
Women's Lace Collars, are wide to shoulder and trimmed in lace. We use Authentilace reproduction 17th and 18th century lace for our collars. The lace is machine made but reproduced exactly from original pricking cards for authentic design lace, with the exact look and feel. Cheaper lace collars are sometimes also available with synthetic lace trims.
Size: Standard, small number ex-stock, various styles.
Prices from: £25 upwards (Non-Authentilace from £19) Goto Top
