A popular over-dress style of the very early 14th century occaisonally called the "Gates of Hell" for the way it displayed the slim waist popular in fashions of the time.

Sideless surcoats were worn for about the first 30? years of the 14th century, however they became symbolic dress and were depicted in art from that time forward as symbolic of a Queen.

A Sideless surcoat is properly worn over a cotehardie.
