men wore outer items such as 'mintan', 'zıbın' (Kaftan), 'şalvar' (Pants), 'kuşak', 'potur' (short pants), 'entari' (kaftan);
'kalpak' (fur caps), 'sarık' (turbans) on the head;
'çarık', 'çizme'(boots), 'çedik' (socks), 'yemeni' (low shoes) on the feet.
The administrators and the wealthy wore caftans with fur lining and embroidery, where as the middle class wore 'cübbe', 'hırka' and the poor wore collarless 'cepken' or 'yelek' (vest).
Bashlyks were the most prominent accessories of social statues. While the people wore "külah's" covered with 'abani' or 'yemeni', the cream of the society wore bashlyks such as 'yusufi, örfi, katibi, kavaze', etc. During the rule of Süleyman a bashlyk called 'perişani' was popular as the Palace people valued bashlyks adorned with precious stones.
'Kavuk', however, was the most common type of bashlyk. For this reason, a related guild was formed in the 17th century. Fur was a material of prestige in that period.
The clothing of Muslims, Christians, Jewish communities, clergy, tradesmen state and military officials were strictly regulated during the reign of Süleyman the Magnificent. "
The essential Janissary costume seem to have derived mostly from the Byzantine infantry dress of the 11-13th C. left, Byzantine precursors of early Janissary Dress.
