From the Madcap Costume Shop in 1951: Rogue of SherwoodArchived Message

Trent Osborne was eager to take on the role of Robin Hood, perhaps to confront critics who whispered that he might not be as physically fit as he once was. Trent told gossip columnist Cora Harper it took only a few brisk ocean swims to put him in tip top condition. Only his valet, who hid the bourbon, knew how many gruelling hours Trent spent in the gymnasium.
The costume consists of the shirt and tights, connected at the waist into a bodysuit. Over this is the jerkin with attached belt. The gauntlets, boots and cap are included.
While Madcap prefers to use natural fibers, the look and function of this costume are only possible using some synthetics. The shirt is linen, and the jerkin is silk lined. The lacings are actual leather, in case leather use might be an issue for you. All other parts of the costume are synthetic, with Ultrasuede used for the cap, belt and jerkin trim. The boots are made of a soft, very stretchy suede-look fabric, and simply pull on.
Three copies of Rogue are available. The price is $125 shipped in the U.S. The doll and props are not included.
