Summary/Abstract: In this paper, attempts are being made to present the fashion and dressing of different social stratums in XIV-XV century and to classify the various typologies during this period. For the first time, has been taken into consideration the myth of mourning found in various parts of the traditional costume. Based on written sources, the engravings of foreing travelers, as well as the older generation of Albanian photographers, we argue that the male felt pant (tirqe) came into use in the second half of the XX century.
