"The German Landsknecht, meaning "servants of the land", were colorful mercenary soldiers with a formidable reputation who took over the Swiss forces' legacy and became an important military force of the late 15th- and throughout 16th-century Europe. The clothing the Landsknecht wore is often called "Puff and Slash" because the outer fabric or garment was slashed, torn and sewn with holes. Fabric under that was then pulled through to form puffs of that fabric, often a contrasting fabric."
