Red Cotton Roman Tunic


This oversized red tunic is made of cotton and extends to mid-thigh. Roman Belt with Hanging Leather Strips sold separately.


Our brightly colored Roman tunic copies the standard issue to the Roman legions from the days of the Republic to the end of the Empire (around 400 AD). Worn under armor or by itself, the simple lines of this tunic are classic and lend themselves to many combinations of clothing from later periods of history. This oversized cotton shirt extends to mid-thigh, giving it a distinctive look. Red only.

Romans took the color from the Spartan''s red cloaks as later did the English army. Spartans wore red so that their enemies would never see them bleed. Shown here with the Roman Belt with Hanging Leather Strips.

Sizes S (36"-38"), M (40"-42"), L (44"-46"), XL (48"-50") and XXL (52"- 54")

I've been wanting this tunic for a long time. A beautifully make tunic. On first inspection, I found the seams and finished edges perfect. The fabric used feels rustic and strong. The only suggestion I would make for the buyer is get a size bigger to accommodate for leg movement. I've tried making my own tunics before, and this one definitely gives me inspiration! Thanks MRL!

Well-made tunic. It fits well and looks much better in person than it does in the photograph.

A well made tunic of heavy cotton. There is no academic consensus on the colour of Roman army tunics. Some sources suggest they were white.

Decent tunic but not completely historically correct. Nonetheless a sturdy item with a keen look. A little tight for larger frames so watch the sizes. I ordered a large but have a muscular build and the tunic is a little tight. Otherwise a good buy. Thanks.
