  1. What did Jesus wear? What was it made of? Where did the fabric come from? How was it produced?

John 19 5 Jesus then came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said, 'Here is the man.'

Clothing: The undergarment was called a “tunic”. The outer garment was called a “mantle” – it was loose fitting with fringes, bound by blue ribbon. Men wore a belt – a four-inch wide leather belt or cloth “girdle”. If one was wearing only an undergarment, then he was said to be “naked” or “stripped”. If one was wearing only an undergarment (tunic) and belt, they were said to be wearing a “loincloth”. The phrase “to gird your loins” meant that the tunic was pulled up between the legs and tucked into the belt. People also wore sandals on their feet, and a white cloth over their head, hanging to their shoulders. This cloth protected them from the sun.

Jesus had plain clothes nothing really amazing since he came from a poor family and area.
It was thought for him to wear plain linens, long robes and plain sandals since this is what all his people wore.
He also did wear a sash to hold his robe in place.

Clothes were made of linen or wool or sometimes camel hair.

He would have worn the same kind of clothes as any other working class of men. This would be a tunic (knee length) like a Roman tunic. This was usually made from two squares of cloth sewn together, however according to John 19:23, Jesus' tunic was woven in one piece, without a seam. It would probably have two stripes, running from shoulder to hem. Many tunics like this from the time have been found in caves. Over this he would have worn a mantle - a large rectangle of cloth which he would wrap round himself, and also use as a blanket at night. He would have worn sandals. These would have had a leather thong which went between the toes, and a slider to loosen them. Again, sandals from the time have been found. Round felt caps were certainly worn by some people at the time, though it is unknown if Jesus wore one. (The Arab keffiyeh, which is common today in the region, is a modern type of headdress).
