Expanding on the comfort of the wallet part:  in the Renaissance era, the
construction of clothing,  at least for the upper and middle classes became
much more complicated than in earlier eras.  Skilled professionial
clothiers produced these garments.  Unless you wish to become skilled
enough in sewing to make these complicated garments, you will have to
employ a modern skilled professionial clothier, most of whom will expect to
be remunerated commensurate with the time and skill required to produce
said garments. 

This is one good reason for a twelfth century persona.  (There are others).
