Imagine you are a traveler arriving in a small market town--this doesn't have to be specifically Europe; any town that fits the parameters will do--in a time period roughly ranging between the late medieval period and early modern. Basically, when there is a fair bit of movement on roads, enough that travelers are a known commodity.
This is a world where the widespread machine manufacture of cloth is still uncommon. Obviously, the notion of ready-to-wear is not on the table.
Where would a traveler be able obtain clothing, a full rig, if you will and nothing wildly expensive or fashionable but rather serviceable, especially if said traveler does not have days to wait around for something to be made to order (although said traveler might be able to wait a day if something could be sewn up quickly enough).
I could research this, but I'm feeling lazy.
Thanks in advance.
But Enough About Me!
How do you like my dress?
