Full Breeches of Ernst Casimir I

description

Summary

Once owned by the Frisian stadholder Ernst Casimir, these breeches are full, in keeping with early 17thcentury fashion. The braids at the side seams – coils of silver thread – were popular and recall the then popular ‘Poolse’ (Polish) jackets. The iron hooks on the waistband attached the breeches to a doublet. The fly closed with buttons and buttonholes – this seems normal now, but at the time it was a rarity.
