So, I decided to poke around, and see what I could find for inspiration. This was somewhat complicated by wanting to find something I could/would actually wear, but other than the Germans I have been playing with. Eventually, I ran across a certain portrait--one Sir Edward Hastings at the age of 29, in 1573. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I will probably do a Featured Garment post on it sooner rather than later.
