Where do Loras' French sleeves come from?

Recommended Posts

Loras tells Sansa that he's always dreamed of a big wedding and that his bride would wear a beautiful gown with French sleeves. I'm just wondering where French sleeves are imported from in Westeros since there is no such thing as France.

I totally heard french sleaves when I watched this for the first time and got so annoyed that the writters could be so out of touch with the domain they are working within. It really gives me relief that they might have wrote fringed instead

Still, the fact that enough people noticed to ask the question makes me feel a little better. I wasn't trying to "catch" them on it... I just thought it was interesting. Although in retrospect, it isn't interesting at all.

So, to answer the OP's question, I assume Loras could procure fringed sleeves from any reputable tailor in King's Landing or Highgarden. In fact, via Google (behind all the "Did he really say French sleeves" pages), I learn that fringed sleeves are just sleeves that are cut ("fringed") in a simple pattern. Loras or his family probably has a servant on hand who could do that work.
