A new outfit for German princes and their entourages became fashionable with the adoption of Renaissance courtly behavior after the Thirty Years' War. This article considers the role of dress in the identity-building process of young German noblemen as they learned about new and fashionable dress codes while on Grand Tour through Europe. Wearing foreign clothes became a strategy of distinction by which noble cavaliers gained access to European court societies and made themselves discernible from regional noble elites. At the same time, traveling incognito allowed a German nobleman to observe European court societies without either participating or risking the political consequences of direct involvement.
