The basic man's upper body garment was the tunic, cyrtel, kirtle... or whatever other name you wish to give it.

A tunic may be an over-garment or under-garment, can be "skirted" to allow for easier movement, or have slits at the side, or be split front and rear to facilitate riding. This varies depending on period, status and culture, as does tunic length, as well as materials and decoration. All are based on a similar basic tunic construction.

Eastern vikings may instead, or in addition, wear a Birka coat or kaftan.
