Theitian clothes are often quite showy, but usually not too coarse. They make great use of shiny fabric and metal parts, elaborate jewels are often a part of the dress. Sometimes they show even armor-like parts, but the metals are treated to become somewhat soft and pliable. Draped fabric, cloaks and gold or silver lined textiles are common. Fancy cloth is used for small inserts, never for the main dress. The "gems" are usually artificial crystals or polymer jelly, except for the court formal dresses.
