suttaine (s.xiii1)


[FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF:  soutane; OED:  soutane n.; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
suttanie,  suttany,  suttanye  

Although English and French are believed to have borrowed the word from Italian sottana in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, these attestations suggest an earlier circulation, presumably directly from the Medieval Latin etymon su(b)tana. Absent from the DMLBS, the word is listed, as an item of clothing, in DuCange.
