Medieval Tabard / Surcoat Eckhart, blue/natural-coloured

This calf-length tunic is made from sturdy cotton fabric. It is straight cut and has side slits from the waist down. It also features a somewhat shorter slit on the centre front and back.

The surcoat or tabard (also surcote, German: Waffenrock or Waffenkleid) came up in the 12th century and was worn by knights over their plate or chain mail armour. It was primarily designed to protect its wearer from direct sunlight on the battlefield, and the various colour combinations were a decisive means of distinguishing brothers-in-arms from enemies in the fray.
Numerous illustrations bear testimony to the prevalence of such knightly tunics in the Middle Ages, for example paintings from the Morgan Bible (also known as the Maciejowski Bible or Crusader Bible), a medieval picture bible from the 13th century, and miniatures from the Codex Manesse, an illuminated manuscript of songs from the early 14th century.

A characteristic feature of the surcoat is its simple, straight cut. For an authentic look, we recommend you to combine the tunic with a leather belt.
