A doublet is a man's snug-fitting buttoned jacket that was worn in Western Europe from Middle Ages through to the mid-17th century. Originally it was a mere stitched and quilted lining ("doubling"), worn under a hauberk or cuirass to prevent bruising and chafing. Then, like many other originally practical items in the history of men's wear, from the late 15th century onward it became elaborated enough to be seen on its own.
