    A small little question:

    What would a trader or travling merchant wear in medieval times?

    what period of medieval times, where in the world, and what is he doing ?

    In short i'd expect a jerkin, hose, boots and a woolen or fur cloak , - if hes travelling in an area where banditry is possible i'd also suggest some mail and a weapon or two.

    for questions like this google is often your friend
