Thomas Edgar

Painted in 1635, Thomas wears a rather splendid figured silk doublet of a very similar fabric and style to the Isham Doublet in the Museum of London that I posted about on my other blog. The breeches are made in a matching fabric and seemingly secured to the doublet with points, though from the Isham doublet I now know that the points could have been decorative and the two joined with hidden hooks (on the breeches) and eyes. He has topped the ensemble off with a linen band, well laced and tied with band-strings that end with some very fancy linen worked tassels

  1. That pattern lace seems to be quite commonplace. I wonder if the lacemakers in our group can identify it?
