Figure 1: Open-Chest, Short-Sleeve Wrap-Tunic — was a mainstay of Borean attire throughout their floruit. Thin versions of this garment made of linen or silk were often worn as the sole article of clothing in climes and times that weather permitted, while fur or leather versions might be worn in slightly cooler conditions, or over the top of other clothes in still cooler circumstances. Even in very cold climates, it would not have been uncommon to see some version of this garment being worn as one of the many layers of a person’s clothing.
Figure 2: Fancy-Schmancy Rich-People Robe — worn by hoity-toity “high-status“ individuals such as wealthy traders and politicians and made from the finest materials. Although far less ostentatious versions of this garb would be worn by persons of humble backgrounds in official settings.
Figure 3: Trinarian Monastic Cowl — worn by Trinarian Priests and Priestesses for a variety of different purposes. This is the vestment most associated with the Priesthood. Traditionally worn as the sole item of clothing, particularly in the monastaries of Holinesse where the Priests and Priestesses are largely sequestered from the public and in a favorable climate. It would be removed at the start of rituals, which would be performed “skyclad” (nude). When mingling with the general public, the monastic cowl could be supplemented by being worn over the Trinarian monastic scapular, so that if the Priest or Priestess wished to remove the cowl, he or she could do so without having to completely denude (this would not be an issue in the monastaries of Holinesse, where nudity was tolerated or even mildly encouraged).
Figure 4: Trinarian Monastic Scapular — worn by Trinarian Priests and Priestesses for interacting with the public. Typically worn under the Trinarian Monastic Cowl, such that the cowl could be removed in public situations without completely denuding the former-wearer.
