Roman Clothing and Roman Belts
We have a wide selection of Roman clothing. Our brightly colored Roman tunic copies the standard issue to the Roman legions from the days of the Republic to the end of the Empire. Worn under Roman armour or by itself, the simple lines of this tunic are classic and lend themselves to many combinations of clothing from later periods of history. The Roman Legionaries wore a red coarse woolen tunic to keep them warm and to provide protection and padding from the Lorica Segmentata. Romans took the color from the Spartan's red cloaks as later did the English army. Spartans wore red so that their enemies would never see them bleed. The Romans were belts to hang their swords and daggers from as well as showing a soldier's position and rank. Roman Legionaries worn roman sandals called Caligae that were made of leather with studs on the sole.
