Male legware can be divided into a number of categories:
- Main garments such as breeches and tights: Volumes 15 and 16
- Overbreeches and Underwear: Volume 17
- Stockings and Garters: Volume 18
Male legware is one of the most complex subjects especially in the area of terminology. This volume and the next examines the various terms and images for common men's main legwear garments, their materials, colours and construction details and as far as possible links words and images for the many styles found.
