The subject of this paper is clothing, specifically the costumes of the Great Mongol Empire. It is based on recent archaeological discoveries from the territory of the Yuan and the Juchid realms, and in particular on my personal study of the textile finds from Nartiin Xad and Buxiin Xušuu, Mongolia. The reconstruction of some of the costumes from there have made it possible to have a more complete picture of the clothes and to recognise their parallels not only among the other archaeological finds, but also as regards the figural representations of the era. The data of these costumes together with the written sources provide us a new way of understanding the clothing culture of the Mongol imperial era.
