Gunnister Man

Monmouth cap?

On the subject of coats for the late 17thc civilian my first port of call would be the Gunnister man.
Have a look at this Pinterest page.
A pattern based on this find is here

His knit cap is not a Monmouth cap but a later style that is similar. I believe it is knitted different that a Monmouth would have and it was heavily felted, or the knap was raised to make it fuzzier.
