Tailor 🧡

A page detailing the Tailor role within Medieval Discord and their Tailor command.


Tailors specialize in creating and altering clothing. The tailor's workshop is equipped with special tools such as scissors, needles, and thread, as well as various fabrics such as wool, silk, and linen. To create a garment, the tailor takes measurements of the client and creates a pattern before cutting the fabric and sewing the pieces together. Tailors are also responsible for decorating and embellishing garments with embroidery, appliques, and other details. They can become very popular depending on who they work for in the Capital. It is every tailor's dream to work for the nobility.



The tailor command is used by the Tailor in order to craft clothing from simpler ingredients. Using this command will open up a dropdown menu wherein you can choose what you want to make.

Men's clothing consists of undergarments like a beige linen shirt and a pair of braies. For the legwear, the regular man will wear hosen. Usually, a long tunic is worn over, and sometimes a cyclas as well, alongside a belt. Their heads are usually covered by a hood (a rectangular piece of hemp with a seam that goes under the chin). Depending on the temperature, some men will opt to wear shorter tunics or shorter hosen (stockings), sometimes even leggings. Women's clothing consists of a tight wool calf-length or ankle-length kirtle which had a sideless surcoat over it, finalized with hosen under it. Women wear linen chemises under their garments. The hair is usually covered with a coif or a veil. The most common colors are yellow, orange, scarlet, brown, blue, and green.


The men of Rosewood are distinguishable by their insistence on wearing stockings paired with knee-length breeches. They are most known for their preference for the hardiecote, a slim-fitting, long-sleeved, thigh-length upper garment made usually from linen, wool, or leather. Both breeches and hardiecotes have cloth, or sometimes wooden, buttons. The women of Rosewood are famed for wearing their stockings, paired with a knee-length kirtle which has sleeves that extend to the forearms but have been cut horizontally to allow the wearer to easily pull them back to the elbows, worn of course over a pair of women's braies. Women's knee-length kirtles are called jucottes in Rosewood. Of course, the jucotte is not warm enough, so most will opt for an overkirtle or a surcoat. However, some women, depending on their modesty and the weather, will opt for wearing bliauts, fancy kirtles with wider sleeves. Both Jucottes and bliauts employ modern curved seams and tight sleeves, as well as a wider neckline, defining Rosewoodian fashion as "on the edge of morality". Shifts have also started to become fashionable; tight-fitting chemises meant to offer more support to the woman's chest and outline her curves. Both the men and women of Rosewood adore wearing cloaks. Men's cloaks are called mantles, while women wear amictaus. The difference being that a mantle cloak may have a cape over just part of the body, allowing for easy access to the sheath, while an amictau is longer and has less cloth around the hood. The people of Rosewood have access to all colors, except for darker shades of red or purple. Their favorite is of course, red.


The highborn and affluent men living in Rosewood, just like the women, wear a fine linen chemise as their undergarments. Some men will also wear braies. Men wear fine linen or even silk hardiecotes with various embroidered designs, usually in gold. Their hardiecotes differ in their collar length, as they exhibit a much taller collar than the usual Rosewoodian style. Alternatively, men could also wear their jupons, a type of padded clothing meant to decorate armor. On their legs, affluent men wear ketill-trousers which were like very long braies that extended to the ankles but became tight under the knees. If wearing a ketill, men would also wear shorter stockings, that went up to the calves. Women's clothes consist of a bliaut with long sleeves and a long skirt, usually laced at the front or the back. The bliaut is usually slim, but will also require a ceinture, a decorative belt with a chatelaine to signify status. Women would wear chauce, a type of fine-wool hosen with embroidered designs. If the weather is bad, they would wear a pelice; a fur-lined surcoat. Unmarried highborn women usually don't cover their hair, but if they wanted to, they would wear netted coifs and a long silk veil that covered most of their hair. Alternatively, married women almost always covered their hair by doing it up into plaits or intricate braids that were not allowed to fall below the shoulder, as they were held in place by a cercle that rested over their foreheads. Another alternative is the trecheure; a design where the hair is braided (with silk ribbons) into two long braids that fall over the shoulders with a gold cercle meant to hold a silk veil in place. Other alternatives for hair coverings include wimples, kerchiefs, and barbettes. Women's clothes were heavily embroidered and decorated. Both men and women wear the pelerine; a long hooded cloak of fine linen or silk that was lined with warm fur on the inside, closed by one or multiple cords in the middle.


Winter clothing mostly follows the Rosewoodian style of dress, but it places an emphasis on having multiple layers of tunics, and overtunics. These would also be made of woven wool, instead of it being knitted. Everyone would wear a cloak over their clothes, but it would be a hoodless one since during winter most people would wear the chape; a woolen, fur-lined hood that covered the head and fell over the shoulders down to the chest, biceps, and mid-back. Besides this, both men and women would wear woolen caps and woolen mittens. Some would wear woolen sleeves as well. Women mostly also wear woolen or fur schals. Besides the regular linen or hemp hosen, both men and women would wear additional stockings over them, and perhaps even woolen braies as well.

Relationship with the Market and other Users:

Unlike some other roles, Tailors have to rely more on the market for their raw material needs. However, some of their needs can be met by trading with characters who are Merchants or Butchers.

Most of their profit will likely come from selling to the market since people don't need to keep replacing their clothes like they would a tool/weapon. However, tailors should look to position themselves so that characters desire to buy from them before the market as it's beneficial for both parties.
