Men’s garb


This men‘s garb was worn in the former County of Hanau-Lichtenberg in the Holy Roman Empire – on both sides on the Rhine.

In County of Hanau, men wore a knee-length over coat lined with a white flflannel to go to church. Depending on their wealth, the over coat was either made from black cloth or blackened drill.

Single men usually wore a short, white jacket called the „Mutze“. Underneath this, they wore a scarlet chest cloth adorned with yellow silk embroidery and green ribbon embroidery.

The weasel or marten fur cap is worn both in summer and in winter.
