Mayor Puddle stands confidently in his Tudor-style doublet. This is an earlier style than most of those displayed on this site, but perfectly acceptable for our show. The distinctive features of this style are the hanging sleeves and long, pleated peplum. The slashes of color you see on the body are trmed and bound cuts in the fabric of the doublet, through which the color of the shirt is visible. Also of note are the two rows of buttons connected by leather strips that close the doublet.
No breeches are worn with this style, only tights, making it an exception to the rule.
The outfit is crowned (literally) with a flat cap.
