I wish I could have met him + his wives.

I dont know why the english make su much fuss of Henry VIII, he was a second rate King, nothing compared with Charles V, the Emperor, King of Spain and lord of the new world.

If only they had the much more simpler clothes of today back then, they could have saved lots of time which could have been used to do a lot of things given their shorter longevity.

He wouldn't have enough time to take those off when he needs to shit.

I've always been intrigued about Henry's clothes final destiny. I've read here and there that sadly none of his original clothes survived the time, yet I wonder whether this is totally true, I find it hard to believe though, given the so extensive wardrobe he enjoyed in life. I've never come across any king's clothes exhibit, I would really love to.

They could re sew (costume of course for display) from like the paintings we know of him

Jason Railson None of his clothes survive because there was a fire in the royal wardrobe.

In case anyone doesn't know, those diamonds, with no exceptions, came from the Golconda area in India, which were the world's first diamonds found. Subtle victory noted for The Female Fashion Monopoly---no view of Henry showing him as the Holbein portrait did. Pants are for riding a horse, not for being a man.

Hmm never knew he was the best dress king of his time.

Rachel, if you google the term "mini ice age" or type it in over at wikipedia, you'll be able to find more on the subject.
Wow. V. interesting. Thanks!

Henry VIII: the original gangsta. Bling? Fuck off, he's got a diamond that's bigger than your head.

@anasnaknota Actually it wasn't as warm as you'd think. We were going through a mini-ice age at the time. The temperatures were 15 to 20 degrees cooler than what we consider normal today. AND... that's why they wore linen undergarments (long shirts/possibly bloomers). Any body sweat and body oil seeped into the linen rather than the clothes, therefore preserving the outer garments.

I'd Recon Old Henry would keep himself Bloody Warm at lest...with all that clobber on!
Jakegothicsnake (7 years ago)
Thank God, clothes became easier to wear so one could go to the toilet without dressing problems from then on.

@jazusa03 Well he had to have someone help him get redressed if he needed to poop, the pants lace up to the vest so its does untie and would take time to undo. The codpiece the part that looks like a large you know what was able to unlaced quickly to go pee. This was the time before zippers and buttons for that matter.

@Darthbelal I make the Tudor ladies gown and yes its a chore to go to the bathroom, let alone get into a bathroom stall with a wide skirt on. Though you don't get chilly, which is good because I am always cold. Guess I have the perfect body temperature for it all.

he would probably sweat a lot during summer wearing all that...
anasnaknota (7 years ago)
@jazusa03 that's why during his later years...he suffered from chronic constipation..it could be that having 2 choose from going to the loo and not taking those clothes off, he took the second option.

@jazusa03 Thats the problem; they thought it was good too keep it in...

@jazusa03 They invited high colonics for this purpose :D

I'd hate to have to go to the privy wearing all of that........

This was a really good video. So many (including myself) pay attention to what the queens wore, but the king's wardrobe is equally fascinating! Thnx
