Nope - it wasn't me - what sleeve article are you referring to? Usually I don't comment on articles on the net, I prefer to orientate me to inventory lists and local sources...
What is possible to find are black and red "French Hoods" - as in the September vineyard scene in the famous très riches heures du Duc de Berry, or at van der Weyden's 7 Sacraments (women in purple houbelande, reading), or on some french tapestries. But I interpret those as "coiffe" - headdress, not as "hoods"
There are some more, one's a picture resp. illumination of spectators of a boating party (it's in one of my French books), and at Boccaces "des clères et nobles femmes", or
Robinet Testard at bnf
(http://www.ac-grenoble.fr/lycee/diois/Latin/Francais/Image/Iconographie/IX-XVIe%20siecle%20-%20Les%20Paysans%20au%20Moyen%20Age/Web/original/1490%20le%20pain%20est%20mis%20au%20four,%20livre%20d-heures%20de%20change%20Angouleme%20par%20Robinet%20Testard,%20Paris%20Bnf.jpg) but those are all from (northern) France, and I daresay not hoods (chaperon) but coiffes.
Of course, I could be mistaken. I do admit that for warfare and or pilgrimage a hood
be acceptable, but not even the Schilling chronicle show any. (And Schilling shows a lot)
