Mens Clothing Men were usually tall, muscular,and athletic.Clothes were important to the spanish men. The men wore shot trousers or pantaloons that come to the knee with gold or silver lace at the bottom. Around the lower part of the leg they wore white stockings or “botos” made of soft deer skin, decorated with designs etched into the leather. Over the shirt, a man wore a long vest with buttons. Over the vest was a jacket.The jacket was usually tied with a red sash at the waist. The Don wore ponchos. The poncho showed the social status and wealth of the person. Richer people wore ponchos trimmed with velvet and silk tassels. Poorer people used a poncho made from large square of cloth with a hole in the middle for the head. The Indians used blankets as ponchos. Topping off the Spanish Dons outfit was a black or dark blue hat with a stiff, bored brim.
