The Scots

Holding Their Yovng Kinge’s Nose to Ye Grinstone (sic). Pamphlet/broadsheet from 1651. It’s a familiar image, but there are some interesting details if you zoom in.

Jockie’s hat and coat cuffs for instance. Bonnet or wide brim?

His shoes and hose. Looks like they are sewn rather than knitted from the back seam and side gussets. He has unconfined breeches too.

The buttons on the back of his coat. Round and shanked.

And last but not least, Charles’s soft boots, boothose and breeches. Spot the ribbon decoration on the lower edge.
