The replacement garment of The Greek Chiton, The Exomis was a short Tunic adopted in the 5th Century BC. They were made of two simple pieces of linen (patterned, cut and sewn). They were shorter than The Chiton and allowed for coolness and increase mobility. The Exomis was favored by Light Infantry such as The Hoplite. Hoplite Forces preferred Red (Crimson) and as their Chiton's before, a cinch belt was still used. Often the ''fighting arm'' was left exposed (bare), which aided in used of a particular weapon.
