This section is specific to Castlewood Re-enactment Guild's standards for lower class members. If you wish to make noble garb you must contact the GM's directly with your research.


You may use Linen, Wool, Cotton, or Leather. Please use solid color fabrics unless you specifically clear the design with a GM. Some woven patterns are good for Upper Household garb, but must be approved.

  • Do not use velvet, satin, brocade, prints, or embroidered material.
  • Do not use synthetics, they look bad and they will make you very hot and miserable.


Any natural shade of blue, yellow, green, brown, orange or grey is acceptable, along with most shades of pink, rust or wine. (NO fluorescent, please.) Check with a GM before using purple, or black.
