Male commoners wear baggy breeches tied at the ankle and belted with a
bright sash. The few who wear coats wear a style tightly fitted to the
chest and arms and flaring out from the waist, and made of dark cloth.
Men wear wide, conical straw hats, or cloth hats (berets). Female commoners
wear layered, decorative aprons over dresses with high necks and
ankle-length skirts. Their wide-brimmed straw hats are often dyed to
match their aprons. Both genders go in bare feet or wear tall wooden
clogs over their shoes to traverse the muddy streets. The gulf between
classes is wide. The nobility cares little for commoners, taxes them out-
rageously, even abuses them. The legal system barely touches the nobility,
but is harsh to commoners.
