One important political influence on fashion in Northern countries during the Renaissance was the imposing personage of England's King Henry VIII. Vain and handsome, he was instrumental in dictating and spreading men's fashion trends. It's conceivable, though not attested, that he massive figure, tall and strong and broad shouldered, is what inspired the padding and puffing trends in men's Northern fashion.
