I attended a few days of 'medieval week' in Visby, Gotland, Sweden. In the market, I met a couple dressed in Renaissance German attire, and interviewed them. Medieval week in Visby covers a wide date range from the early medieval to the Renaissance, and there were quite a few re-enactors there in Landsnecht kit. They even had their own parade, although I wasn't there when that happened.
We talked about how the clothes were a vulgar display of wealth, about storing wine in codpieces, and the surprising durability of slashed (woollen) cloth.
Meanwhile, everyone in Hollywood historical movies continues to wear brown.
N.B. It has been pointed out to me that in this video I use a pronunciation of the word 'Landsknechts' that falls below the standard expected of me. This is an Anglicised version of the word, and for that I feel no shame, but the central S should apparently be spoken with a clean S sound as in 'soup spoon', and not a soft SH sound as in 'sugar'. My apologies to any viewers who are stricken by the sheer awfulness of it all.
