Are there any surviving Tudor gowns or men’s clothing? For Italian Renaissance Fashion, Elenor of Toledo’s burial gown and one of her red dresses are in museums, but I have seen nothing else.

The Mary Rose museum has a few shoes that were found in the wreck, there are various pieces of clothing once worn by Elizabeth I held in private collections, the Tower of London has armour from the Tudor period, including pieces belonging to Henry VIII, Sudeley Castle has a christening gown said to have been worn by Elizabeth I and the V&A museum have a woman's jacket from the 1620s - http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/textiles/features/embroidery/objects/object.php?id=13&id2=2&action=&hits=&page=&pages=&object_type=&country=&start_year=&end_year=&object=&artist=&maker= - which is obviously Stuart, not Tudor.
