A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Roman clothing owed much to that of ancient Greece, but it had distinct forms of its own.
In all the ancient world, first and foremost clothes needed to be simple. As for possible materials, there was only really one. Wool, although to some extent linen was also available.
The most basic garment in Roman clothing was the tunic (tunica). It was the standard dress of Rome. For most Romans and slaves the tunic would be the entire clothing they dressed in before setting foot outdoors.
The male tunic would generally reach roughly to the knees, whereas senatorial tunics would generally be longer, some reaching to the ground. The sleeve would be short sleeved, as female tunics often had long sleeves. However, it took until the second or third century AD for long sleeves to become acceptable for men. Until then it was perceived as highly effeminate to be wearing one.
