Description

Aketon of the XIV century was a widespread type of padded armour and mostly was used by foot soldiers because of short sleeves.

Usually, such model were being worn under the chainmail, and more rare - over it. Length of aketon armor could vary, but it was not too long – usually until the middle of thighs.

Made-to-measure gambeson may be sewn by two ways:

  • Machine manufacturing. Tailors will make padded armor by your parameters, using sewing machine.
  • Hand sewing. Custom gambeson will be completely sewn by hands of our tailors. Such type of manufacture is historical one and is offered for additional costs.
