Notes:

These two people represent nobility from the third quarter of the sixteenth century (1550 to 1580); they have hats in red and gold; ruffs around their necks; fur-lines gowns; red sleeves. They have slightly pinkish faces. The man has white socks and cream-coloured (or slightly yellow) shoes.

I don’t know whether this is how rich people dressed in the 16th century; perhaps they were at court, or maybe they had fleas and the collar is to keep them from scratching?

This is a detail from a larger plate for 16th century fashion.
