Regarding the cook's garments in TITUS:
 
The Palliament used in the Atlanta Shakespeare Tavern production of this show
(Nov. 1994) was indeed a white sheath with gold trim. When Titus donned cooks
raiment, he wore a leather apron and a white hat. It worked well and was easily
recognizable by the audience, but I don't know how chronologically accurate it
was.

Dear Bill Godshalk---I wish I knew the answer to your question. Hopefully
someone else will--because if the fact is true, it's easy to see the thematic
importance in TITUS of his finally accepting what he refused in the beginning
of the tragedy--in ways that could be considered more complex and interesting
than Lear's analogous rejection and acceptance of Cordelia. Besides, there are
other things in Titus that seem to support the reading you give--but they are
more thematic "internal textual evidence"- This could actually be an instance
in which "new historicists" could be helpful. Chris
