Common farmers and shepherds wore almost the same clothing from the 12th through 16th centuries. This can be seen in manuscript illuminations, books of hours (Christian devotional book popular in the Middle Ages), and the sketchbooks of famous painters like Holbein and Dürer. The evidence suggests that peasants wore the same style of functional, easy-wearing clothing for the better part of three centuries.
