  • 2. MENS CLOTHINGMen wore leather ankle boots/shoes or more rarely knee boots. They wore thick woollen trouser held up with a tie usually criss-cross with strips of leather or cloth. Men wore a long shirt or under tunic, this was followed by a thick over tunic made of the same material usually wool drawn in by a belt. The belt was decorated by a buckle which was a display of wealth. At the other end of the belt was a decorated belt end. On his belt a man would wear a leather pouch often decorated with runic symbols or other designs in which he kept his personal possessions. He would also carry both an eating knife and a working knife which was a basic tool and in an emergency the first weapon.They also wore a thick cloak pinned with a big brooch.They wore leather or fur hats for extra protection.
