A short woolen doublet with an unusual cut, characteristic for the Irish Gaelic outfit from the turn of the 16th and 17th centuries.

It has a large V-shaped neckline. The doublet is finished with a frill and fastened at the front with two tin buttons. The sleeves are open and also buttoned at the wrists. The stitches, segment connections and sleeves have a decorative finish in the form of linen, braided strings.



The Irish wool doublet has a linen lining. To check the available wool colors, see here.

In the basic version, the decorative strings are gray. In order to change their colors, please contact us before placing an order.

Together with the Irish shirt, forms a harmonious duet. To complete the outfit, it is worth choosing pants and a belt.
