"Lynn ably demonstrates the central importance of clothes: their meaning; manufacture; care; and legacy. Lavishly illustrated and engagingly written, it reveals the Tudors in a whole new light."--Tracy Borman, Historians Favourites 2017, BBC History
"Along with the sumptuous photographs of fabrics, objects, and paintings, the book offers a great deal of information about the social meaning of dress as a form of 'competitive magnificence.'"--Douglas Bisson, Choice
"The book does an excellent job of ensuring that visitors to Hampton Court and the other Royal Historic Palaces gain a strong sense of how seriously clothing was taken in the past and why it deserves to be studied with care today."--Evelyn Welch, Renaissance Quarterly
Winner of the 2019 Historians of British Art Award, a single-authored book with a subject before 1600 category
