Doublet 1100-1200?!?!?
Hello I was reading Wikipedia and it said in 1100-1200 in Fashion that:
Newly fashionable were short, fitted garments for the upper body, worn under the tunic: the doublet, made of two layers of linen, and an early form of quilted and padded jupe or gipon.[1]

Is this true? I had never heard of linen doublets in the 1100s!!!

Most clothing historians I know put the development of the doublet sometime around the third quarter of the Fourteenth Century; maybe a little earlier.

But, of course, Wikipedia is never wrong! :D
Sounds very suspicious. I checked the article, but couldn't look at the source mentioned. Maybe someone else has this book?
