16th and 17th century paintings in Rotterdam

So, I've been to Rotterdam for five days, at a really huge 18th century history congress. I also did quite a lot of sightseeing and I can tell you there were lots of really spectacular modern architcture to be seen.
However, I also went in to the Boijmans & van Beuningen museum and took som photos of 16th and 17th century art, more specifically of clothes worn in art. My camer isn't the greatest and of course you weren't allowed to use flash, but I managed to get some shots of clothing that may be interesting.

I didn't take notes of what everything was though, because by then my arthritis was being evil and I could hardly stand the pain of being upright :(

But look at that 15th century fabric. With the centre of the large pattern repeat in the middle of his back.

Pretty 17th century, can't remember by whom.

 Look at the braid on this 17th century man's outifit. Again I didn't take a note of who the painter was.
