Lords, Kings & Knights

All our costume design team maybe female but when it comes to the creation of our male costumes then the men in our lives have a (loud) opinion. From the potter to our armourer and even chef, they're not shy in telling us what bits they love and more so, what they definitely wouldn't be seen wearing out in public. Gone are the days of lycra clad Robin Hood in tights, our gents range is all about leather, studs and a good dollop of armour and swords. But fear not, we still have our flashy 'peacock' range for those of you who love a nice silk velvet doublet or those who love a splash of colour. There is something for you all!
