    Cool musterdelvys

    What's "musterdelvys" in the following sentence:

    "It was the stranger in the doublet of green musterdelvys gilded with leaping lions"


    Thank You

    Thank You
    It seems to be a created word which has no meaning outside science-fantasy writing.

    Yes, Thank You. Indeed it is from sci-fi background but do you have any idea what kind of stuff or thing is it referring to, taking into account that a doublet is rather a garment from past centuries?

    No, I'm afraid I don't know what it might be, there are probably clues in the book, or whatever it is that it is in.
