An embroidered linen doublet seen at close distance. Embroidery is simple, but very thick, real horror vacui at the work here. Linen doublets seem to be relatively common summer wear for the upper crust, but they felt that extensive decoration was needed to make it good enough for wearing. It's interesting to note that here there's no mix-up in materials, embroidery, buttons and ties are all linen.
