The toga might have been the symbolic garment of the Roman citizen, but no piece of clothing was quite as prolific as the tunic. This Late Roman Copt Tunic, for instance, is based on a style that was popular in the southern bounds of the Empire. Favored in the southern reaches that bordered on the torrid clime of Egypt and the desert, this tunic reflects a glimmer of classic Roman style, fused with that of a desert-dwelling people. The tunic is made entirely from cotton, giving it a light, loose-fitting, and airy form. It is primarily white, to help with heat, while also featuring rich colored decorations on the neckline, shoulders, and sleeves, to better show off the personal prestige of a Roman citizen. It also has full length sleeves, and its long length is made easier to move in thanks to short slits on either side. Designed for the desert, this Late Roman Copt Tunic still shows off a fine sort of style that makes it an important part of any Roman reenactors wardrobe, allowing them to create more distinctive and unique looks, from the outer bounds of the empires territories.

    This tunic is nearly always “out of stock” and very difficult to obtain. I ordered it on back order (which took almost two years) and it finally arrived yesterday. In short, it is absolutely stunning. A beautiful off white cotton with a natural linen feel. The blue (more like indigo) embroidery is finely crafted and well laid out. The design is Copt Egyptian popularized during the late Ptolemaic era when Egypt was a Roman province. However, this could be considered a “Trade” item with styles like this seen in the Eurasian continent (including Spain, Brittany and England). Overall, this tunic was well worth the wait.
