In this period men´s fashion is less eccentric in proportion and style. The doublet, trunk hose, and the Venetians or canions, are often match in fabric, colour and decoration. The doublet is high waisted, with a diminutive peascod belly, and all seams braided. Epaulettes follow the slope of the shoulders, lightly padded sleeves terminate in short cuffs, and a little skirt edge the waistline. The ruff is tied and set to a neckband. For the trunk hose, the heavy bombastic disappears; they are pleated and gathered to the breeches or Venetians.
