The Romans controlled the type, color and number of garments worn and the sorts of embroidery with which they could be trimmed. The distinctive Roman mantle, the toga, remained throughout the history of the empire the state dress, the garment of the Emperor and of high officials of the state. Footwear too was differentiated according to classes. Men wore sandals, those of the patricians red with a moon-shaped ornament on the back. Senators wore brown shoes with four black leather straps wound around the leg to the mid-calf and tied in two knots.>>> GENERAL / GLADIATOR STYLE, ROYAL LUXERY
