Sumptuary Statutes Simplified

This is a simplification of the 1574 Elizabethan Sumptuary Statutes for use designing authentic garb.

Please note that the statutes are quite specific regarding acceptable versus improper usage. If something is not specifically called out and you know it to be period it's probably fine.

 Look for your rank on this list, everything mentioned in the statutes for your rank is stated here. If your character is of lower rank than appears on this list follow all rules that apply to the lowest rank. Keep in mind whether your character could have afforded all the items which they are allowed

My humble thanks to the folks at elizabethan.org from whom I got the text of the original statutes. For the original text check out elizabethan.org/sumptuary/index.html
