Reserved for Nobility and Royalty, these pieces could either be worn "over the head" or "open front". The primary differences were in length and material. Scotland was a cold environment. As such, warmth was desired. Their Tunics were made of layered Ermine, Pounded Wool and even Calfskin. The insides of the garment were often layered in Muslim (for comfort). Often tied at the Upper from (lower neck), colors were also set. Dark Blues, Browns and Greens (Any dark color other than Red or Purple). They were worn mostly as an outer garment.
