Well... [In reply to] Can't Post

Metallic dyes work very well on wool fabric. (Silk, too, if you can get it.) Dwarves mine metals. And, at least in the films, raise large sheep (and where else would all that "Meat ripe off the bone" come from if not mountain goats?) So I'd suppose colorful woolen fabrics would be common clothing.

One might assume the Eastern Dwarves (Stiffbeards, Ironfists, Blacklocks and Stonefoots) might trade in silks with their Western brethren, if they have any friendly contact at all.

Small enough to hug, big enough to ride:

Aragorn and Legolas went now with Éomer in the van.

"Rorth Rorlingas!!"

Sauron: "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling hobbits!"

(Thanks to Brethil for image and battlecry.)
