What did those who walked the First Crusade wear? I'm not just talking about the noblemen etc. but also the poor people who allegedly went (or is that a myth?). And how did they dress according to their own fashions/standards/habits once on the road? It took them quite some time to get to Jerusalem so I'm thinking that at some point they've had to get new threads?
