Straps as medieval lacing

Medieval lacing with aglets is a necessary part in many garments, both medieval clothing for women and medieval clothing for men. These medieval straps are helpful in mounting hose to suspender belt or pants to doublet. On the other hand, medieval dresses like our dress of type 2 or type 4, need laces with aglets to tie them in front and on sides. Many gambesons are tied in front with a lacing.

An aglet (aiglet) is a word coming from old French language and it means a needle (aguille, aiguille). It came to the old French language straight from the Latin word acus — a needle.

This small medieval accessory can be found in iconography. You can see an example on the Melun Diptych by Jean Fouquet,
