You may want to do a few Google searches on the words 'Byzantine Costumes', or 'Byzantium'
I also found via history associations:
Byzantine and Medieval studies sites: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/medweb/
Byzantine studies conference 1999: http://www.byzconf.org/1999abstracts.html
Intnl. Congress of Medieval Studies: http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress/
Texas Medieval Association: http://www.towson.edu/~duncan/tmahome.html
Also look at resources in scribal manuscripts, and iconography, especially those with landscapes
in them, as the common folk are often dressed more simply.
Good luck and post any findings, as I'm also interested in Byzantine dress.
