In the later 14th and 15th century, hose rise further up the leg until they joined in the middle, at best guess around 1420. Often footed or stirruped, early joined hose barely reached above the widest part of your bottom; only at the end of the century had they risen to normal waist level. Braies became smaller as they had less area to cover.
