crete IslandCRETE MAN WITH COAT In recent years aired by some as the groom's attire Cretan. The latter were based on erroneous assessments, on the matter of an otherwise worthy folklorist Angeliki Hatzimichalis which having at the hands of a donated the gold-trimmed costume Benaki Museum from Crete, and without doing fieldwork on the island, writing for Greek national costumes in the mid 50 'described it civil, festive Crete. A claim utterly wrong, just think that no Kritikos before 1900 there wore costume with gold Harxhi unless you were Turkish-Cretans. That wore clothing only in the early 20th century few Cretans may or will s few dozen, and they were some "princely", that some of those who supported Prince George, the period was High Commissioner of Crete (1898-1906) stating this way their political beliefs. The filoprigkipikoi inspired gold decoration on their clothes from gold-embroidered uniform of the bodyguards of the High Commissioner, the famous "kavasides". But the uniform of kavasidon was fully impaired and the design and name of the Turkish military uniform, on a vehicle that Crete was under the high sovereignty of the Sultan. Note that the word "kavasis" comes from the Turkish word "cellar" means the armed guard of the Pasha or embassy of the old imperial turkey, dressed with impressive gold-embroidered uniform. After 1913 he became the official union of Crete with Greece the traditional Cretan costume of Cretan Constabulary became the second official attire of the palace guard. So, today half the presidential guard wearing the kilt and the other half the breeches, the interior is not the presidential palace guard vrakoforoi. Today, the Cretan traditional costume the only ones to wear are still dancers in traditional bands at dances and parades
