Found sparingly on ancient stone reliefs, the ''Kandys'' was thought to be a form of ''long coat'', possinly made of either cloth (Persian) and later leather (Greek). A long sleeved garment, the sleeves were mostly cut vertically and are thought not to have served as a traditional sleeve, allowing for arm movement. Dating to the 9th Century BC (oldest), they are found used by first Greek Men (4th century BC). For some unknown reason, Greek Women adopted the style more, with Kandys being most associated with that sex. It is further determined, The Kandys was most used during Winter, over other more traditional clothing.
