Why Not Go The Whole Nine? Indulging in your love for Tudor costumes can be super fun and extremely addictive. For a lot of Tudor enthusiasts the fun comes from mixing and matching items to create a complete Tudor costume look. While it can be fun to mix and match, it can also be very difficult to find all the right pieces you need in order to complete a look. By getting your hands on a complete set, you can save yourself the time and effort of having to piece an outfit together. Especially if you are trying to do so by a deadline.

Privateer Tall, dark, and handsome. The privateer is a swashbuckler that knows how to get his hands dirty and woo the ladies at the same time. Made of cotton muslin and featuring elastic cuffs the Buccaneer shirt really sets this outfit off. Black cotton trews with a drawstring waste always work best for the Buccaneer look. Best case scenario the trew will have side-slit pockets and tie cuffs. A ring belt and braces in black leather will bring the aesthetic full circle. If your set comes with a Tudor flat cap then that’s a definite bonus!
