Such garments were worn by heralds, who spearheaded the Knights to the tournament show grounds. It consists of a lower and an upper tunic tabard and a beret. A herald had to be seen well on the show grounds. That is why we have chosen a bold color combination of red and blue. The appearance of our Herald is emphasized by silver trims on the shoulders and the skirt inserts of the Tabard. This garment can be made in various colours. Please look at the sample card Duvetyn and Velvet and possibly write the desired colour(s) in the note of your order.
A herald, or, more correctly, a herald of arms, is an officer of arms, ranking between pursuivant and king of arms. The title is often applied erroneously to all officers of arms. Like other officers of arms, a herald would often wear a surcoat, called a tabard, decorated with the coat of arms of his master. It was possibly due to their role in managing the tournaments of the Late Middle Ages that heralds came to be associated with the regulation of the knights' coats of arms. This science of heraldry became increasingly important and further regulated over the years, and in several countries around the world it is still overseen by heralds. Thus the primary job of a herald today is to be an expert in coats of arms. In the United Kingdom heralds are still called upon at times to read proclamations publicly; for which they still wear tabards emblazoned with the royal coat of arms.
